OYEZ! OYEZ! SIXTH AND FINAL PART OF THE TITANS COVER GALLERY...
"And it came to pass that there was a great wailing and
gnashing of teeth across the land, for The TITANS had fallen."
Yes sirree, after only 58 issues, The Titans was subsumed by SUPER
SPIDER-MAN and yet another mighty MARVEL mag bit the dust.
You have to hand it to Marvel U.K. 'though - they certainly tried, and
were a major player in British comics in the '70s and '80s, but it couldn't
last, alas. After 20 plus years, Marvel U.K. disappeared, and PANINI
gained the licence to produce mags for a British readership. However,
in its day, Marvel's British division was a force to be reckoned with
and published some memorable comics that are still fondly re-
called (but not without criticism) by old farts like myself.
Okay, it wasn't as good as it could have been - should have
been - but neither was it entirely without merit. So let's raise a
glass of soda pop to The Titans, as we study the covers of the final
nine issues of this short-lived but power-packed comic from the far-
off '70s. We may never see its like again, but at least it made a big
impression on the memories of bright-eyed readers who en-
joyed it back in the day and were sad to see it go.
And below is one you won't have seen before. For the
story behind it, take a look at the comments section.
