And yes, that's the cover to my very own issue of CTB #1 at the top of the post - isn't it a beauty?! (Incidentally, I know the post's title makes no real sense, but hey - it captured your attention, didn't it?)
Update, Saturday 31st March, 2018: Today, I was back in the house again, and once more occupied that back step - holding the very issue of CTB that you see atop this post and reliving the moment from nearly 40 years before. And thus the connection between house and comic is re-established, and things have turned full circle. The house will soon be sold, but my memories (and hopefully my first issue of Conan) shall endure.
|And would you believe it - the very back garden (and step) itself|
