Suffering shads! It's the return of the feature that's left the internet in tatters, as I once more drone on randomly about comics I've owned.
Just what'll be turned up by this veritable Pick and Mix?
Only a rifle through Steve's Lucky Bag of Confusion can tell us...
Superman's definitely in need of a good slap on this cover.
Inside, Hawkman quits the Justice League, and Eclipso might be involved.
Other than that I can recall little of the contents.
It's always nice to see a Nick Cardy cover though.
It's one of the few Original X-Men stories I ever liked, as the merry Marvel mutants find themselves on trial in the court of Factor 3.
I seem to remember that Ross Andru drew this issue, which could explain why it appealed to me more than their tales usually did.
Some bloke builds a big gun to commit crimes with and Thor has to stop him, in a tale of squabbling siblings.
The issue that introduced me to DC's man of mystery.
From what I can recall of this tale, the Phantom Stranger's called in to try and help establish whether a defendant's plea of insanity is genuine or not. Needless to say, there's a twist at the end.
It's the story we all wanted to see, as Conan takes on Kull.
Red Sonja and Belit, meanwhile, continue their bickering.
It's one of my fave Marvel monster tales, as Grogg causes no end of bother.
Sadly, we still get no answer to the enduring mystery of where Marvel's giant monsters buy those underpants from.
It's the only issue of Swamp-Thing I ever owned. It's from after Bernie Wrightson left the strip but that doesn't mean it lets us down on the pictorial front, thanks to some lovely interior work by Nestor Redondo.
It had stylish artwork by Howard Chaykin but I always remember this as being one of the few American comics I had as a child that I could never get on with.
