THE CRUNCH COVER GALLERY - PART NINE...
As I was preparing the four covers for this post, I was half-listening to a radio programme about something-or-other and heard someone say "That's the crunch of the matter!" How apt is that, eh? And so we return to The CRUNCH Cover Gallery, featuring the DCT comic which lasted for only 54 issues from 1979 to 1980. Similar in some respects (if you squint a bit) to IPC's 2000 A.D. (especially its use of the term "thrill-power"), you'd have thought it would've lasted longer.
Some people no doubt think I don't include enough information about the comics I feature, but comics are a visual medium, and I prefer to let the images speak for themselves. Whenever I'm perusing other blogs, I'd rather see good-quality pictures of comics from the past, and bring my own thoughts, memories and associations to the table, than have someone witter on about things I already know. Besides, sometimes there's no new facts I can add, so I tend not to bother trying.
Anyway, here are some nice covers for you to look at. Wanna see more? Then let me know, frantic ones!
