PART TEN OF SMASH! COVER GALLERY...
Here's SIMON TEST getting up to all sorts of escapades on
six covers of SMASH! from 1970. This is the latest in our cover
gallery featuring this titanic title from 40-odd years ago, and it was
one of Britain's best periodicals for boys in an age when there was
still a comics industry in this country, as opposed to the 'craft
fair' that exists today.
I've mentioned before that, spectacular as these covers are, I
think IPC missed a trick by not alternating the featured character
from week-to-week, as it would surely have intrigued potential new
readers to see a different face staring up at them from the news-
agent's counter from time to time. Any thoughts on the matter?
