The Internet tells me that yesterday was the 85th birthday of Jazzy John Romita. So, happy birthday to him, if he's reading, which I suspect he isn't.
But were Marvel UK serving up anything drawn by him on this day of exactly forty years ago - way back when the jazzy one was a mere forty five years old?

And blow me down if we don't get a Spider-Man cover by that very artist, in conjunction with Marie Severin, as Electro tangles with our hero in a TV studio.
The Grim Reaper's causing trouble for the Panther on a cover that's a noticeable cut above the ones that were normally commissioned for the UK mags.
Jason and Alexander clearly in need of a trip to the opticians.
The Leader's plot to replace the American government with robots continues apace.
For some reason, I can never look at this cover without expecting everyone concerned to burst into a song from The Sound of Music.
