FABULOUS FLASHBACKS: 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF RAMPAGE #1...
October 12th 1977 - that's the day RAMPAGE #1 went on sale. The weekly Rampage that is, not the monthly magazine that surfaced sometime after its namesake's demise. The one you're now looking at lasted for 34 issues and featured The DYNAMIC DEFENDERS and The Man Called NOVA. At one time I owned them all, but now only have the first 3 or 4. You have to hand it to MARVEL UK - they were continually unleashing new mags on British Marvelites in an attempt to see what would stick, but aside from SPIDER-MAN COMICS WEEKLY (in all its various incarnations), nothing seemed to last for long.
In just under 3 weeks, it'll be 40 years since I bought this comic (yup, this is the actual one I purchased back then), but the moment seems as fresh as the touch of a gentle summer breeze upon my face, and I find it hard to believe that such a length of time has elapsed, so quickly has it flown by.
Anyway, that's enough of my nostalgic introspection - now it's time for yours as you peruse these pulsating pages and re-acquaint yourselves with yesteryear. If you bought this comic back in the day, let's hear all about it in the comments section.
