It may now be March but what of the March of Time? What events were transpiring exactly forty years ago today at Marvel UK Towers?
One thing I've just noticed is that all their mags now cost a walloping eight pence, not just Dracula Lives and Planet of the Apes. I can remember when you could get Marvel comics for five pence. Where will this madness end?
Maybe it's me but I don't recall the Schemer ever managing to be this dynamic in the actual story.
For that matter, I don't remember him having any death-gas either.
I take it the Daredevil story's the one where Matt Murdock dresses as Mike Murdock dressed as Daredevil dressed as Thor in order to tackle the Cobra and Mr Hyde, before then walking around on a tightrope, hundreds of feet up in the air, in order to make it look like he's not blind.
I think we've all had similar experiences in our lives.
I loved loved loved this tale when I was a kid, especially the Sons of the Tiger segment, which was my first and last and only experience of them.
And let's face it, who wouldn't be drawn in by the tagline, "Fifty fingers of death!"? It's like the world's most kick-ass advert for Twix.
The Cowering Gil Kane Blonde makes what I believe to be her Dracula Lives debut.
What with appearing on all those Conan covers as well, she must be raking it in in overtime payments.
Hold on a minute. That's not the Lawgiver. The Lawgiver's an orangutan and that's clearly a gorilla. What are they trying to do - make a monkey of us all?
For that matter, those gorillas have remarkably hairless arms and legs for apes.
