In July 1966, the British government was forced to take emergency action to prevent a potentially disastrous collapse of its currency. It's great to see how much the world has changed since then.
But what were our favourite Marvel heroes up to at that very moment?
Were they making a sterling effort in their quest to defeat evil?
Or were they merely taking a pounding?
It's that one where Goliath stumbles across a scientifically advanced lost race in the Andes.
Hold on a minute. Wasn't the Inhumans' Great Refuge originally in the Andes? It's almost like Stan Lee was reusing the same ideas over and over again and hoping no one would notice.
I do appreciate any cover that has Goliath on it.
Hooray! My favourite Daredevil villain makes his buzzsaw bearing debut, as he decides to prove his super-villain mettle by defeating... ...er... ...Foggy Nelson.
The Black Panther makes his feline first appearance.
Looking at that cover, I've come to realise that, after forty-odd years, that cape is starting to grow on me.
History is made as we get Steve Ditko's last ever issue of The Amazing Spider-Man.
It's no doubt a sign of just how hasty his departure was that the cover had to be cobbled together from panels that appear inside the comic.
If this month gives us Steve Ditko's last work on Spider-Man, I'm assuming that means this is his last issue on Dr Strange as well.
I believe this is the one where Dormammu decides to have a fight with Eternity. What a complete and total wally he is.
It's Iron Man vs Subby in a tale in which the first half is drawn by Gene Colan and the second is drawn by Jack Kirby. It would be true to say there's a fair old clash of styles involved.
Hooray! The Boomerang makes his senses-shattering debut!
How can the world's mightiest and indestructibliest mortal possibly hope to overcome a man armed with the power of boomerangs?
Thor's off to rescue Hercules from the clutches of Pluto and his hordes of Hades.
"Thunder in the Netherworld," does always sound like it should be a euphemism but I don't know what it should be a euphemism for.
By the looks of it, our mighty mutants are about to find themselves facing a bunch of villains who no one else could be bothered to fight.
