A MARVEL-LOUS WORLD...
Saturday - traditionally the day I'd buy my weekly comics as a teenager back in the '70s. That continued in the '80s, but by the time the '90s came around, there weren't too many weekly periodicals left - at least, not of the kind that interested me. Now and again, it's Saturday when I buy the latest monthly issue of The MIGHTY WORLD Of MARVEL (even though it may've gone on sale a few days before), and I luxuriate in the illusion that nothing much has changed in the 44 years since that esteemed publication first hit newsagents' counters back in 1972.
I continue to buy the title mainly out of a desire for continuity, unwilling to relinquish a familiar habit I've indulged in for most of my life, but it's still a rather nifty magazine, with some entertaining content that makes my commitment to it worthwhile. I must admit though, that if the mag were to resume featuring The INCREDIBLE HULK, The AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, and The FANTASTIC FOUR (as it did when it first came out), then I'd be a very happy chappie. However, I still get a thrill when I see the masthead staring back at me from the shelves of my local WH SMITH's.
That's the cover of the latest issue above. Why not give it a try and immerse yourself in another world? The Mighty World Of Marvel to be precise. But be warned - once you've entered its hallowed halls, things will never again be the same. Available in shops right now - buy one today.
