We're in that strange limbo between Christmas and New Year - but so mighty was Marvel UK forty years ago that even a limbo couldn't prevent them from giving us a fistful of super-hero action in this week of 1974.
And here's where we find out just what it was they were giving us.
Much as I love the Prowler, I'm not totally sure he deserves the cover's claim that he's, "The most dangerous super-villain Spidey has ever faced!" To be honest, I think that even Nazi Bee Man, or whatever he was called, was more dangerous.
Ooh! I sort of remember this one. I believe there were crocodiles involved.
Admittedly, that's not that difficult to remember, considering they're on the cover but I do vaguely recall an inside panel of them swimming towards something or other, leaving a gentle wake behind them as they did so.
For some reason, I'm getting some kind of flashback that either this issue had a cut out and mount diorama on the back cover or that the front cover itself was later turned into one in a future issue.
Hooray! I had the original American version of this tale. And I just happen to have a review of it, right here.
I'm assuming this is the first part of that story where the Hulk takes on a bunch of aliens who also happen to be Egyptian gods. It was one of my favourite Hulk stories when I was a kid. To be honest, when I was a kid, anything with an Erich von Däniken vibe was guaranteed to grab me.
