All students of history will know there've been many great endings over the centuries; and today, Steve Does Comics brings you an ending worthy of Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes itself - as its latest feature grinds to its final resting place.
The only issue of Shazam I ever owned.
Like the Metal Men comic I mentioned the other day, I got it from a newsagents in Heeley Green. I still don't have a clue why that makes it seem exciting but, somehow, it does.
Sadly, I remember little of the main story but remember that I found CC Beck's simple art style appealing.
The Legion of Super-Heroes find themselves entangled in a plan devised by their evil counterparts.
The only issue of E-Man I ever owned.
I believe this issue may have introduced me to the word, "Entropy."
I also suspect this issue featured John Byrne's Rog 2000 in the tale of a haunted hotel. This may have been the first time I ever encountered the work of John Byrne. At the time, I found the tale most droll.
Apart from the cover, I don't remember anything about this at all.
It does however remind me that I once had a comic that featured a reprint of a Lee/Kirby tale about a girl who can walk on air until it's pointed out to her that people can't walk on air, at which point she loses the ability to do so. If you know in which comic that reprint appeared, I'd be very glad to read your thoughts in the comments box below.
It's another issue of Prez - and another whose contents somehow elude my memory.
An evil bad guy has a formula that turns people into monsters. Needless to say, the Avenger soon sorts out his perfidious plans.
The only issue of the Champions I ever had.
You do wonder just who at Marvel thought it made sense to launch a comic that tried to team up the Black Widow, Hercules, Iceman, the Angel and Ghost Rider. Maybe it's just me but that doesn't seem the most natural combination of characters.
Sadly, I can recall nothing of what happened within this issue.
I think a shopping mall may have been involved.
I could be wrong.
My eyeballs detect a Neal Adams cover.
Arguably one of Atlas/Seaboard's stronger offerings. I particularly recall a tale of two samurai and a load of giant spiders - not to mention an article on the making of Towering Inferno.
Wulf the Barbarian has his third outing. I'm not sure if he had a fourth one, the Curse of Atlas being what it was.
Lees Hall, Gleadless.
