I've recently seen the latest James Bond trailer. A fact which has nothing to do with the rest of this post but I can't think of a relevant introduction for it, so I thought I'd best mention something completely random and hope I can turn it into a viable link.
It looks like a very nice trailer, though I must confess I've still not managed to see any of the Daniel Craig Bond movies and therefore have no idea as to whether they're any good or not.
I've also never seen any of the Harry Potter films.
I can't help feeling I'm being remiss in my duties to British cultural imperialism.
There's only one thing for it. I'm going to have to take refuge in that other brand that's as British as fish and chips and look at what our favourite comic company was up to in this week of exactly forty years ago.
Good grief, I actually managed to turn it into a viable link. I'm starting to think there are no miracles I can't perform when armed with a keyboard.
And blow me down if Marvel UK haven't gone more British than ever.
Intriguingly, on the original US cover for this story, the Houses of Parliament were visible in the background, while, on this UK reprint, they've mysteriously disappeared.
I suspect this may be because someone feared that UK readers would know the Houses of Parliament are not next to Tower Bridge. But I could be wrong.
The Swordsman's back - and still no doubt using the flat of his blade.
Someone really needs to tell him how you're supposed to use a sword. It's like the Punisher using a gun that fires nothing but ping pong balls.
Dracula's up to his usual villainy.
How on Earth can he not see those apes? They're not even trying to hide from him.
The Defenders make their dynamic debut, with the help of a Neal Adams cover.
I have no idea what happens in this one. Have we reached the story with the Inhumans in it yet?
