What's happening? It's sunny and hot outside! Have I slipped into some strange parallel dimension version of Britain that bears no resemblance at all to our own dear version of Blighty?
There's only one thing for it. I'm going to have to seek refuge in the summer of 1976.
What's that? That was hot and sunny too?
Is there no escape from this madness?
Speaking of madness, unless my senses betray me, I believe the Avengers have found themselves in a strange and alternate dimension as well.
But who on Earth is the man in the yellow, doing the talking? I assume he's the Squadron Supreme's version of Hawkman but I have no memory of him.
Conan having a tangle with the man whose name he goes on to appropriate.
Things look to be bad for our hero and his girlfriend.
I like that lettering at the bottom of the page. It reminds me of those multi-coloured Polo mint things I've mentioned before.
To be honest, it's not a very classy look but it does stir up nostalgic feelings and makes me want to suck on some sweets.
Hooray! It's the debut of Gorr, which means our next encounter with the High Evolutionary can't be far behind.
I always had a soft spot for Gorr. Did he appear in any stories after the Galactus/High Evolutionary one?
If I remember rightly, this is the one where a dramatically shrunk-down Hulk is implanted in Glenn Talbot's brain and then fights imaginary versions of his old enemies inside it, which can't be safe.
Wasn't it all the idea of Doc Samson?
If so, you do wonder how he escaped being struck off.,
Iron Man showing off his battle nous by flying away from his foe instead of flying straight at him and knocking his block off with one punch.
If I remember right, this is the one where Hammerhead returns as a ghost.
I bet Spider-Man still keeps trying to punch him in the head instead of the stomach.
Did he never learn?
Clearly, both he and Iron Man are in desperate need of punching lessons.
I don't have a clue what happens in this one but it has a bit of a Jack and the Beanstalk vibe to it.
I must confess I was always on the side of the giant in that one, even though he kept saying he wanted to eat Englishmen.
Sentinels? Outer space? Dave Cockrum? How could anyone not love the X-Men in this era?
