Well, it's been a happy day for me because Dino De Horrendous' legendary 1976 King Kong remake has been on TV this afternoon. How I thrilled. How I gasped. How I wondered how they ever thought they'd get away with that robot ape near the climax.
But were our favourite Marvel heroes feeling like kings of the jungle in this month of exactly forty years ago?
Or were they just being made monkeys of?
Thanks to Agatha Harkness, the Scarlet Witch finds herself up against the terrifying menace of Necrodamus.
To be honest, I can't see the name, "Necrodamus," without thinking of the reggae duo Chaka Demus and Pliers, which does undermine the sense of menace somewhat.
You can read my review of this very issue, right here.
Red Sonja is back - and on her back - as our favourite tomb raiders find themselves up against a naughty pair of sorcerers.
You can read my review of this issue, right here.
You can't read my review of this issue anywhere - because I've no idea what happens in it. But the cover has strong hints of the Smasher story-line from the Amazing Spider-Man.
DD finds himself up against the menace of Death-Stalker and the Gladiator in the Everglades.
I remember first reading this one in the Mighty World of Marvel 1977 annual.
And you can read my review of that annual, right here.

The Wendigo's back.
And, unless my memory fails me, a certain future X-Man is about to make his debut.
Harry Osborn's still being the Green Goblin.
I genuinely know nothing at all about this issue but my razor-sharp senses tell me Ego may be involved.
"Not a Hoax! Not a dream! Not an imaginary tale!"
I could be wrong but doesn't it turn out that it is a hoax and Professor X is really alive and well and choosing to live in the cellar for about five years?
You can't blame him, We've all done it.
