This being a bank holiday weekend, less than a day ago, I was in front of my TV, watching the Peter Cushing monster-fest At the Earth's Core. How I thrilled. How I gasped. How I wondered why Doug McClure was incapable of going anywhere without encountering supposedly extinct creatures.
But what was Marvel UK giving us in this week of the year in which that film was first released?
There's only one way to find out...
Our heroes are still teaming up with the Squadron Supreme on an alternate Earth.
I'm not totally sure though why the Vision's telling his colleague things they already know.
The X-Men swap places with the Fantastic Four in Marvel UK's flagship book.
Given that I loved the Fantastic Four and hated the Original X-Men, this was not seen by me as being a good thing.
Jason and Alexander are still having all kinds of problems.
It's all getting exciting for me. Only one week to go before Spider-Man's mag returns permanently to my local newsagent's.
I think the Thor tale in this issue may be the one where he swaps bodies with Loki.
Vlad the Impaler meets Juno the Impaler.
What with recent events in Planet of the Apes and now in Dracula Lives, Marvel UK was giving us more evil brain shenanigans than we could have known what to do with.
Hooray! With this issue, The Titans returned permanently to my local newsagent's.
I do remember being very pleased with Gil Kane's art on the Captain America strip.
I believe the Captain Marvel tale was drawn by Jim Starlin.
I was enthralled by the FF's travails in Latveria.
All in all, what a magnificent issue it was.
