I've already celebrated the 45th Anniversary of The MIGHTY WORLD Of MARVEL #1 in a recent post (here), but it would be remiss of me not to allude to it again on the actual date - which is today. Saturday, September 30th 1972 is when this iconic issue first hit the shelves all those many years ago - wow!
Above, is a picture taken a few days back of the cover of this actual ish, which has adorned my bedroom wall for many a long year, but was unfortunately looking a little the worse for wear. (I once had 5 copies of #1 - took the cover off one to put on the wall, gave one to a pal, still got 3 left.)
So I dug out one of my remaining copies, scanned and printed the cover, and that's the result below - replacing the time-worn one above. I'll give the old one a 'Viking funeral' later and be sad to see it go, but the room needs freshened up and this is really the only way to do it and retain the look I've been familiar with for close on 30 years.
Whaddya say, frantic ones? Does it work for you?
