As all the finest scholars know, the month of August didn't get that name by accident.
Good grief, no.
It's named after August Darnell of Kid Creole and the Coconuts fame.
But were our favourite Marvel heroes of fifty years ago going nuts? Or were they just sitting back and drinking their cocoa?
There's only way to find out.
It would appear that the Enchantress and the Executioner have teamed up with Baron Zemo to cause trouble for Marvel's finest.
The super-soar-away Owl makes his debut.
You can't help feeling that, if he'd played his cards right, the Owl could have been Daredevil's answer to the Kingpin.
Clearly he didn't play his cards right, and the Kingpin ended up being Daredevil's answer to the Kingpin.
But take a look at DD. How could anyone not love that red and yellow costume?
I believe this tale sees the return of the Red Ghost and yet another trip to the moon for our heroes.

The Unicorn makes his horny debut.
Well, with all these great villains making their first appearances this month, just what legendary foe can Giant-Man give us?
No wonder Hank Pym went mad.
