PART TWENTY-ONE OF MIGHTY MARVEL COVER GALLERY...
Not only am I running out of MIGHTY WORLD OF MARVEL comic
covers in an unbroken sequence, I'm also running out of things to say about
them. Can you believe that there are only seven more paper-covered issues
to go before we get through the complete set and the mag goes glossy on
us? Unfortunately, I only have a few glossy-covered MWOMs in my
collection, so future posts in this series will be limited in number.
Look at the ad for the Marvel Annual in issue #59. I remember
seeing this book in a shop on a walk into Hamilton one day (in Blantyre, I
think) in July or August of 1973. I think it was probably July, because I was
actually quite surprised to see it on sale so early. A few weeks later (if that),
I bought it from a shop in the old village quarter of my town one Saturday,
but apart from the GEOFF CAMPION cover, I wasn't as enthralled
by the Annual as I'd been with its predecessor the year before.
Anyway, if you have any memories of any comics on this page and
you feel like sharing them with your fellow Criv-ites, you know where
the comments section is. Go on - give us a peek into your past.
