FANCY SOME MARVEL UK BULLPEN BEDLAM? THEN READ ON...
Okay, who remembers the MARVEL UK weekly comic The ORIGINAL X-MEN from back in the early '80s? If you're a longterm reader, you should at least be familiar with it, as I did a cover gallery of the title on the blog only a few short years ago. Back then (in the '80s I mean), most British Marvel comics usually contained half-page strips by TIM QUINN & DICKY HOWETT, which were invariably hilarious (I thought) and added something extra to what were mainly reprint comics.
Anyway, I was poring through some back issues of The Original X-Men earlier and re-reading some of the Quinn & Howett lunacy, and thought I'd share a couple of them here. Hope you enjoy them, and I'd say it's well-past time PANINI (if they own the copyright and haven't done so already) considered colouring the strips by the pair and releasing them in a nice Special Collected Edition. What say you all?
