All lovers of high culture will be delighted to know this year marks the fortieth anniversary of the most important movie in cinema history.
That's right! It was indeed four decades ago the world saw the original release of that hard-hitting box office smash The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams. How we thrilled as Dan Haggerty grew his beard, stared at logs and, erm, breathed in and out and things.
But will our favourite Marvel heroes of forty years ago be feeling a little grizzly?
Or will they instead be celebrating a short-lived paws in their battle against evil?
The Vulture's still back - and he's still out to get Mary Jane for seeing him commit a murder.
Or is he?
I could be wrong but I think this tale was the first Whodunit The Amazing Spider-Man comic ever attempted.
It certainly wasn't the last. After this, there seemed to be a spell when Peter Parker's alter-ego couldn't stop acting like an adolescent Columbo.
It's Halloween, and the Collector's back.
To be honest, he's not my favourite villain. He's too badly dressed, ugly and annoying for that.
I'm pretty sure that, in this tale, he tries to defeat the world's mightiest super-team by firing bats at them.
You see? That's not my idea of a classy villain.
Cap finds himself up against the only super-criminal ever to have been named after a social networking site.
Conan's got a stabbing pain in the temple again.
Putting my critic's head on, I'd say there's far too much going on on this cover. Exactly what are we supposed to be focusing on?
Still, it's always nice to see Captain Marvel back.
Darkoth the death demon shows up from the very bowels of hell.
It's another belter as the Rhino and Abomination take over Gamma Base - and only the Hulk can stop them.
But will he actually need to?
Thor's still battling against those aliens armed with giant vacuum cleaners.
And will wonders never cease? He's actually managing not to be defeatist on the cover of his own comic!
