I can think of nothing whatsoever clever or interesting to say as an introduction to this post.
So here's what Marvel UK were up to forty years ago this weekend.
Terror at 10,000 Feet? Wasn't that the title of that William Shatner Outer Limits episode where he's on the plane, being threatened by a monster?
Oh. According to Google, that was called Nightmare at 10,000 Feet and was in The Twilight Zone.
Other than that, I was completely right.
I think I'll give myself a medal.
It's one of my favourite covers to one of my favourite stories, as the Avengers make the Vision a member.
The Hulk's still going Quatermass about it all.
More importantly, we get the legendary Dr Doom/Daredevil body-swap tale in which Doom takes over DD's body but somehow never manages to notice that he's blind.
And they claim he's a genius.
Is that a Neal Adams cover I espy?
It's weird how right the painted covers look on Marvel UK's Planet of the Apes but how out of place they seem on Dracula Lives. I can only put it down to the fact that Dracula Lives has a clumsier and more intrusive masthead.
You'd never know it from the cover but it's yet another instalment of the Apeslayer saga.
This is the third Marvel UK mag this week to feature the word, "Terror," on the cover. Clearly, it was a very scary weekend for us readers. I'm amazed I got though it with sanity intact.
I think I'll give myself another medal.
I seem to remember this being about Conan deciding to loot a tomb and consequently coming up against a supernatural menace that fair threatens to destroy him and his female companion. I do wonder if he ever feels like he's trapped in Groundhog Day?
Still no clues given to us as to what the Ka-Zar story is about.
Surely one of the greatest comic book covers of all time, as the Surfer meets Thor.
