PART FORTY OF FAVOURITE COMICS OF THE PAST - CAPTAIN MARVEL #25...
After CAPTAIN MARVEL #1, the next issue I remember buying
was #25. I probably bought it because I recognized the style of art
from the early covers of The MIGHTY WORLD Of MARVEL, not
to mention the 'Marvel' part of the masthead, which had been pressed
into service for the selfsame publication. I used to have a 'Fortress of
Solitude', a 'hideout', under the stairs of an office building in the local
town centre, to which I sometimes repaired to read my newly-bought
comics by torchlight 'cos I couldn't wait 'til I got home. This ish was
one among many that I yet associate with the place to this day.
I say 'Fortress of Solitude', but that was usually only when I was
'dogging' (no, not what you're thinking) school, which was normally
a solitary pursuit. However, on weekends I'd sometimes take some
pals with me, and it was a thrill to sneak into 'my' hideout and while
away some time, reading comics, drinking bottles of ginger, eating
sweets and feeling like WILLIAM BROWN's OUTLAWS. Ah,
happy days! Wish I could have those glorious times back again.
Got your own memories of this particular issue that you'd care to
share with your fellow Criv-ites? The comments section awaits!
