PART SIX OF FAVOURITE COMICS OF THE PAST - MARVEL COLLECTORS' ITEM CLASSICS #6...
I often bought the same comic twice, weeks or months (perhaps even a year or so) apart. Having cut out pictures from one particular ish, I'd later regret it and buy another copy if I saw it. (I should explain to foreign readers that, as U.S. comics came to this country as ballast in ships and were stored in warehouses, batches of the same issues often turned up years apart. That's why, for example, I was still able to buy a pristine copy of WORLD'S FINEST COMICS #158 from a newsagent's in Blackpool in 1973 that I'd first purchased in my home town back in 1968 or '69.)
