On November 22nd, 1975, BBC1 showed The Vengeance of She, a film that made such an impact on my soul that I can recall nothing of it other than that Ursula Andress wasn't in it.
My Googling tells me that this was the most interesting thing that happened anywhere in the world on that day, backing up my theory that 1975 was the most unexciting year in human history.
Still, perhaps it doesn't matter. Perhaps we didn't need real world excitement. Perhaps our favourite comic company was about to give us all the excitement we could possibly handle.
I'm getting the feeling that this week's Inhumans tale may pivot around Black Bolt using the devastating power of his voice.
So, that's basically the same as every Inhumans tale I've ever read..
I do believe we're about to get the introduction of naughty old Arkon and his trans-dimensional lightning bolts of mischief.
I do believe this is the first issue of Dracula Lives not to feature Dracula on the cover.
To be honest, I don't know who those other people on the cover are but I assume the bandage-wearer to be the Living Mummy who looks like he might not be living for very much longer.
They're still escaping from the Planet of the Apes.
Marvellous as that all was; being an Erich Von Däniken fan, I did prefer the Man-Gods From Beyond the Stars story which backed up all my theories about the origins of the human race.
I may have since amended my theories about the origins of the human race.
That's the kind of scientist I am.
One who believes everything he reads.
Spider-Man's still messing about in the Hidden Land.
Meanwhile, Iron Man's still discovering that you should never let Happy Hogan go anywhere near a hospital.
The Super-Heroes is still trundling along inoffensively.
I may never have had this issue but I did have a copy of its rather fabby Hulk tale in the 1975 Marvel Annual, so my sense of deprivation is not as great as it might have been.
