On September 12th, 1975, Pink Floyd released their classic album Wish You Were Here.
But what about the day after that? Were the heroes of our favourite comic company wishing they were here too?
Or were they merely wishing they were somewhere else?
Spidey clearly wishes he was somewhere else, as a prison riot breaks out and it's Gil Kane up-the-nose action a go-go.
On other matters, Iron Man now seems to have been fighting Whiplash for about fifteen consecutive weeks. Did they really manage to stretch that story out over so many issues?
It's one of my Avengers faves, as the Squadron Sinister makes its dastardly debut.
As for the copy at the top of the cover, I'm not sure what the Hoardes of Hell are. I can only assume they do a lot of hoarding.
It's all high-drama in Draculaville.
Unless I miss my guess, it's the start of that Tom Sutton tale where there's a bunch of apes on a gigantic ship. I seem to recall it with fondness though my recollections of it are vague.
There's something very strange about this week's cover. A great big Steve Does Comics No-Prize goes to the first person who points out what it is.
I assume this cover is symbolic and that the comic doesn't really feature the Silver Surfer teaming up with the X-Men to fight the Sentinels?
On other news, we're promised a battle issue that'll blast big brains.
But what of Doc Savage? Has his own big brain been blasted into oblivion, never to be seen again? Or is he contained within but just not mentioned on the cover?
