It had been around six years since The INVINCIBLE IRON MAN
had last appeared in his own strip in a British weekly (FANTASTIC), but
in 1974 the wait was finally over and ol' Shell-Head was back.  I think I'd al-
ready bought this ish, but if memory serves, it had some slight flaw that made
me seek out another copy.  I do remember making my way down to the Old
Village quarter of my town as it was starting to get dark, with the glow of the
street lights reflected in the fine film of rain on the pavement, and buying my
second copy from a long-gone newsagent's.  I acquired the above copy some
years back, and the newsagent remains open in memory.  One glance at the
cover and I'm back there faster than a fart from The Flash, buying
this comic on a wet January evening in the long ago-days of 1974.
