On this day in 1976, BBC 1 was showing The Brain of Morbius, that nightmare Dr Who tale in which a brand new monster's stitched together from bits of other monsters, to give us a nightmare creature with a lobster's claw for a hand, and a goldfish bowl for a head.
Clearly such a tale could inflict madness upon the strongest of minds. Therefore I shall have to take refuge in whatever it was Marvel UK was offering us that very week.
This would appear to be the issue where you can find out if you were at the Roundhouse with Stan.
Sadly, I never had this issue and so I shall never know if I was at the Roundhouse with Stan.
I suspect the Man-Ape wasn't at the Roundhouse with Stan, as he was far too busy planning his vengeance against the Avengers.
Or maybe it's not having been at the Roundhouse with Stan that made him so angry in the first place.
What are those sweets that look like Polo Mints but are all different colours? I'm getting a definite vibe of those from that Savage Sword of Conan lettering.
It's the Titans' second Emergency Issue.
Sadly, that's all I can say about it, as it's another comic I never had - and one with a not overly revelatory cover.
Could it be? Has Dracula turned into a damsel-rescuing hero?
The Spider-Slayer's still causing trouble for our hero.
I must confess Conquest is my least favourite of the original Apes films. I'm sure it was well-intentioned but I did find it somewhat dull and sterile.
It also didn't answer the question of why the moon had gone missing in the first Planet of the Apes film. I'd love an explanation for that. Just what did happen to the thing? How did the apes make the moon disappear?
It's the story where, after all these years, Betty Ross finally gets interesting.
I am intrigued by the colour scheme for the lettering on this week's cover. I don't think I've ever seen lettering coloured quite like it. I do find it strangely appealing.
It would appear the X-Men have been given the boot, to make way for Bloodstone. What further indignity could be inflicted upon them?
