'CRIVENS!' DOES IT AGAIN - ANOTHER COMPLETE CHRISTMAS ISSUE OF WHAM! (#132, 1966)...

CRIVENS! - the finest comics blog that money can buy - which is doubtless why it's free. (There's a hint of a joke in there somewhere.) Anyway, here we are again with a complete issue of WHAM! (#132 to be precise) for your nostalgic perusal, as we pull back the curtains of time for a look at what Christmas comics were like 56 years ago. If I remember correctly, Wham! had started reprinting MARVEL's The FANTASTIC FOUR in August of that year, and I'd started buying the comic not long after, having first read the FF's origin when it had been simultaneously published in SMASH! Wham soon became my favourite comic for a while, because I was in love with The INVISIBLE GIRL, SUSAN STORM. (I don't know what I saw in her - guffaw!)
Anyway, you don't visit this blog to read what I write (you undiscerning lot), so let's jump straight into the pretty piccies. As always, your comments are welcome.
