Hooray! It's Guy Fawkes Night, that epic time of year when we fling a dummy on the fire, waggle our sparklers around and celebrate the Gunpowder Plot.
But what plots were our favourite Marvel heroes having to deal with in this month of 1975?
Here's where we get to find out.
The Squadron Sinister are back and, no doubt, causing as much trouble as ever.
Is this the one where Gerald Ford or Henry Kissinger or Spiro Agnew or someone turns out to be the real bad guy?
I suspect that this tale contains all the elements we expect from a Conan story.
I must confess I have no memory at all of the Torpedo but it's always nice to see Gil Kane giving us some clawed hands action on a cover.
Do my eyes detect a Jack Kirby cover?
I must confess I have no knowledge of the Crusader but his uncanny resemblance to Marvel Boy must surely be more than coincidence.
Doc Samson is back, which is always a good thing, as far as I'm concerned.
I detect another Jack Kirby cover.
I used to have this comic but I remember nothing of its contents.
I do believe this is the one where Spidey's getting all hot and bothered over whether he's a clone or not.
Fortunately, he soon realises he can't possibly be and that's the end of the matter and it's never heard of ever again.
"I've been paid to murder you, hero-- --and the Stilt-Man never fails!"
I would argue that claiming that the Stilt-Man has never failed is on a par with claiming that the Titanic has never sunk.
Mine eyes do detect another Jack Kirby cover.
They also detect that someone's probably been watching Jason and the Argonauts.
