MIGHTY MARVEL COVER GALLERY - PART TWENTY...
Y'know, sometimes, when I'm scanning these comics for your
appreciative perusal, it seems as if I only acquired them fairly recently.
Then it hits me - over 40 years have passed since I first bought them. Man,
that's an extremely scary thought, and one I often have a hard time getting my
head around. I was but a mere schoolboy when they came into my possession,
and I can still see the classrooms of my old school and myself sitting, during a
break, reading the odd issue I'd bought on the way in on a morning, having
missed it for some reason at the weekend. Then I remember that my school
was demolished some years ago and is now a housing estate, and the gulf
between then and now seems even greater, due to the fact that one
of the tangible points of connection no longer exists.
But enough of my philosophical musings, that's not what you're here
for. So enjoy these images from 1973 and cast your mind back to when
you first read them. Then, if you'd care to, let's hear your reminiscences
about what they mean to you, and about the times, places and people
you associate with these cataclysmic comics from so very long ago.
Note how the statue's name changes from DRALLA to DRALLAS
in THE STONE MAN story below. You'd think someone would've
noticed and corrected it, eh?
