It's been an exciting week for all football fans, as Wales have taken on Portugal in a European Championship semi-final.
But were our favourite Marvel heroes of exactly forty years ago having to leave the field equally thwarted in their ambitions? Or were they instead dispatching their enemies faster than you can say, "Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch?"
Just two issues of The Avengers to go but there's still no rest for Conan as he encounters yet another Lovecraftian horror from beyond the other side of sanity.
If I remember right, Terror on the Planet of the Apes was the title of the first Jason and Alexander story. I therefore conclude that this is also a Jason and Alexander story.
I don't have a clue what the Ka-Zar tale is, as I don't remember him ever having problems with a volcano - except for in that tale where World War II is still being acted out by people old enough to know better. As that story was reprinted in a much earlier issue, I assume this is not the tale in question.
It's a landmark issue, as the Punisher makes his shoot-first-ask-questions-later debut.
I believe the Jackal also makes his debut.
This was the issue in which I first noticed that Gil Kane was no longer drawing the strip. I was so observant.
The Hulk gets caught up in a dastardly plot involving the Wendigo and a curse.
I suspect a certain future X-Man may be putting in an appearance before long.
I remember this tale as involving a man with a monocle and a killer camera. I also remember it as not being a classic.
I assume the Captain America tale is the one with Baron Zemo and a deadly death-ray equipped satellite with which he aims to take control of the world.
