Wow!  This brings back memories for me.  To think that I was still a schoolboy (just) when the above issue of PLANET Of The APES first came out on December 7th, 1974.  (Yes, I know it's dated the 14th, but that's because comics traditionally carried next week's date to give them a longer shelf life until the next issue came in.)

The reason I recall this issue in particular is because it carried one of my letters in the - wait for it - LETTERS page, even if they did somehow manage to misspell my name in one instance.

Talk about time machines.  It seems like only yesterday when I first bought this comic, so it blows my mind to think it was a mere kick in the pants off 40 years ago. Just thought I'd share it with you here.  (And thanks to BAAB for making me hunt for it.)
