MASSIVE MIGHTY MARVEL MONUMENTAL AND MAGNIFICENT MASTERPIECES...
The illustration is a painted version of a panel in 'TERROR Of The TOAD MEN!', reprinted inside and originally from The INCREDIBLE HULK #2. I won't spoil your fun looking it up by telling you what page it's on - just go to it, tiger! (As Stan or Mary Jane would say.)
I recall being fascinated by the cover (something about that red) and smuggling it in to school in my schoolbag (perhaps having made a detour to buy it from W. & R. HOLMES on the way, can't quite remember). That afternoon, I sat in Dougie Smith's maths class, stealing surreptitious glances at the prized possession in my leather satchel while pretending to be looking for a pencil sharpener or eraser. (Of course, I'd never have called it a satchel back then, so look how pretentious I've become.)
Yup, all in all, a nice little Annual.
