As far as I can remember, no British MARVEL mag of the '70s and
'80s followed the U.K. tradition of having snow on the cover masthead
before THOR & The X-MEN #37 was published, so this one's a col-
lecter's item on that basis alone.  And having ICEMAN's head in the
corner was another n-ice touch for a winter issue, don'tcha think?

(If I'm mistaken and there was a U.K. Marvel mag prior to this
one with snow on the masthead, then let me know, frantic ones!)

Kid, I'm surprised you don't have a festive theme for the Crivens masthead...L** S******* does for B*****...just saying :D

Kid said...

H'mm that's odd - we seem to be getting some interference on the Crivens' comments wavelength. However, what are you on about, CJ? I've got white lettering to denote snow.

By the way, Kid - I've just been watching the Dr. Who Christmas special on iplayer and, as you said a couple of days ago, it was quite enjoyable - better than I expected. I think the absence of an irritating female companion helped a lot too. But sadly that state of affairs won't last long. I also watched the return of Pop Quiz which is back for two specials...remember it from the '80s ?

At first I feared the worst after the way they introduced him at the start of the story (like a comedic klutz), but it was a straightforward-told little tale. As for Pop Quiz, I don't think I ever watched it back in the '80s, CJ.
