Hark? Can that be the sound of my papergirl delivering this week's offerings from Marvel UK?
But what's this? These aren't new! They're from exactly forty years ago this week!
She has to be the slowest papergirl ever!
I wouldn't mind but the shops are only four hundred metres away.
That means she's managed to travel a hundred metres every decade.
At this rate, it'll be 2054 by the time she gets back to the shops, meaning she'll have spent her entire life travelling from and to the shops.
It's a tragedy that could make a grown man weep.
Is that a Dan Adkins cover?
Whoever it's by, I remember the cover but not the actual story.
There are no clues as to what this week's Shang-Chi and Avengers tales are.
I'm going to try and be psychic and guess that the Avengers story may have been the one where Goliath gets beaten up by Dragon Man. I have no reason at all to believe that that's the story featured, so don't quote me on it.
Dracula's in London.
Cue the fog and gas lamps.
Thinking about it, how ridiculous would someone have looked if they'd really tried running around 1970s' London dressed like that?
Hooray! Doc Samson is still making his debut.
Mr Google tells me this was the issue where Gullivar Jones made his first UK Marvel appearance.
Planet of the Apes, Ka-Zar and Gullivar Jones? All in one mag? How could anyone not love this comic?
It's a classic warning about the quest for eternal youth, as Spidey concludes his struggle with Silvermane.
