AVAILABLE NOW! HOUSE OF SECRETS #92 FACSIMILE EDITION... NOT FORGETTING MARVEL COMICS #1000 (UPDATED)...
Copyright DC COMICS
Cop a load of this, crazy Criv-ites. Why, it's the DC Facsimile Edition of HOUSE Of SECRETS #92, first issued way back in 1971 and featuring the first (pre-ALEC HOLLAND) comicbook SWAMP THING. With matt paper, original ads and letters, great reproduction of the story pages themselves - why, strike my stunningly handsome fizzog with a wet kipper if it's not the next best thing to owning the original issue (which I do).
Just two things though: in earlier reprints, the words 'any more' in the first panel's caption box were revised to 'anymore', and it's that amended version that appears in this issue. Also, clumsy retouching of lettering on page 5 has changed the word 'the' to 'me', making no sense at all. If you can live with that, then this is the very chappie for you! You can love it, hug it, kiss it, and call it 'George'. (Personally, I'm just going to read it and then put it back in its poly bag, but hey - you might have your own ideas on how to have fun.)
The original and facsimile - side-by-side
But that's not all - take a look below at MARVEL COMICS #1000. (Nah, I didn't see most of the other 9,999 either.) This is a celebration of 80 years of Marvel (originally called TIMELY, then ATLAS, but their first mag was called MARVEL COMICS), and includes MIRACLE(MARVEL)MAN and NIGHT RAVEN (yup, that's right - Night Raven) - as well as all the other Marvel heroes, I'm sure.
So why are you still hanging around this dump? Rush out and buy both of these collectors' item classics today!
