A far wiser man than me once said, "Shut up!" But I don't listen to wise men. That's what's made me the man I am today. Therefore, here's the latest instalment in the stunning new feature that's inducing catatonia on a scale never before seen in the history of the World Wide Web, as I take another random look at the covers of comics I once owned.
A crack team of hunters demonstrate the exact qualities you need if you're to catch your prey. Stealth, intelligence and razor-sharp alertness.
I acquired this comic on a Sunday morning. No comic acquired on a Sunday morning can ever be bad.
It's the third of the Black Orchid's original three appearances in Adventure Comics. Sadly, it's another tale I can't remember that much about.
For those who've never read any of her original tales; blessed with invulnerability, super-strength and the ability to fly, she was basically like Supergirl but, for some reason, kept using a mastery of disguise to defeat her foes, when you would've thought she could have saved herself the trouble and just given them a punch in the bracket.
The Justice League come up against an alien called Nekron. I don't recall exactly what he was about but I do recall he was up to no good.
I'm not totally convinced Wonder Woman actually died in this tale.
If I remember right, this was the last issue before the X-Men all got dragged off into outer space for the trial of the Phoenix.
Needless to say, it was all cracking stuff and a highlight of its era.
The last issue of Conan I ever had.
From what I recall, Conan wanders into a village and it's not long before he's up against a deadly menace from the sea.
Poor old Conan, even a trip to the seaside turns into a life or death battle for him. I bet he couldn't even attempt to eat a toffee apple without it trying to kill him.
I always remember this issue as having great artwork but I can't remember who it was by.
Our third cover that involves a man carrying an insensate female.
One of my childhood faves, as our, "hero," finds himself up against a skeleton on a mission of revenge.
If you don't love that cover, there's probably no hope for you.
Then again, if you don't want to be a skeleton on a mission of revenge, there's probably no hope for you.
I really don't remember anything about this issue at all. I have no doubt though that it was all very strange.
Having blown up half of London, Iron Fist is still having trouble with his nuclear-powered foe.
Is this the issue where Misty Knight gets her bionic arm, or did she already have it by this point?
