It's been a very strange and depressing year so far. Virtually everyone famous in the whole world has died, often with no warning.
There are times when you're glad there's a place called The Past where all your showbusiness idols were still alive and you could, every week, read about the adventures of people for whom death was never more than a temporary setback.
It's a salutary warning to us all to never trust evil children who have gigantic heads, flying chairs and super-powers.
It's a warning I shall make sure to heed at all times.
That's a very dramatic cover.
I can say nothing else about it, as I don't have a clue what happens on the inside.
I suspect it might be yet more of the Jason and Alexander saga but I refuse to be quoted on that.
Dracula's still causing trouble in the New World.
The Disruptor gives a masterclass in how to conduct a political campaign.
Interesting to see that Ghost Rider manages to be in two Marvel UK mags this week.
In fact, wasn't he in The Titans as well? Good grief! He was practically ubiquitous.
Hooray! It's the Hulk vs Black Bolt. I loved this tale when I was a youngster.
Even more hooray! For no noticeable reason, the FF move to The Titans and we get Jack Kirby's tribute to The Prisoner, as our heroes find themselves being guests of Dr Doom.
Even more excitingly, this means I only have to wait one more week for The Titans to return permanently to my local newsagents. Soon, I'll be getting four Marvel UK comics a week!
Truly, this was the golden age of Marvel UK.
At least, in my house, it was.
