THE THING IS BIG BEN COVER & IMAGE GALLERY - PART ONE...
It lasted a mere 18 issues before being merged with SPIDER-MAN
#595 (a U.K. weekly), but way back in 1984, THE THING IS BIG BEN
hit the shelves of newsagents across Britain. The main Thing stories were
taken from MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE, and back-up strips came in the
form of IRON MAN and CAPTAIN AMERICA - plus the zany
DONALD DOGFLY by the talented HUNT EMERSON.
To be honest, Donald was probably the best strip in the mag, and
it's a shame it only appeared in the first dozen issues before being con-
signed to comic strip limbo. Time for a comeback I think - where are you,
Donald? While I'm waiting for him to reply, the rest of you can get on with
appreciating all the lovely piccies I've generously bestowed upon you.
Don't forget to return for the second instalment.
(Incidentally, I've still got the free gifts which came with the first two
issues [none in the third], but can I remember where I put them? [The
answer's no, in case you were wondering.] Whenever I find them, I'll
add them to this post - but that could be a long, long time.)
UPDATE: Here's the free gift from #1 -
I'll add the one from #2 when I dig it out.
