Twitter tells me that today is the Ides of March, as made famous by that legendary historic epic Carry on Cleo.
But what kind of a carry-on will we be getting from Marvel UK in this week of exactly forty years ago?
I must wrap myself in my time-travel toga and find out.
The Black Widow goes all Emma Peel, gets a new costume and decides to tackle her male counterpart.
More importantly, the stationers I got this from at the time had an underground tunnel that linked it to what claimed to be the largest toy shop in Europe.
And if that didn't make that stationers more glamorous than any stationers should ever be, I don't know what would.

It's easily my favourite Don Heck Avengers story, as our heroes go back in time to fight themselves.
I do like the evil Wasp in it. I think they should have kept her.
You can read my review of that very tale, right here.
Blade gets his first cover appearance.
I do worry about him though. On that cover, he looks about eighty. It's a miracle he managed to even get up those stairs.
Not only do we get a highly dramatic cover that promises apes vs monsters but we get the promise of Killdozer.

Marvel heroes never have a straightforward love life, do they?
The tale that I first read in Sons of Origins of Marvel Comics continues.
I did like the fact that Galactus was taller in it than he'd been in previous appearances.
I wasn't sure, however, about the Surfer having been a living, feeling person before Galactus created him. I had preferred the idea of him having been created from scratch by the Big G.
Much as I love Conan and much as I love Barry Smith - even early Barry Smith - I'm not sure that's the greatest cover ever to grace the front of a Conan comic.
