They can't accuse this blog of not being ahead of its time. It's still only July but I'm already looking at comics with an August cover date on them.
Admittedly, it's an August 1966 cover date but what's a mere fifty years to a man of my quality?
If my memory betrays me not, the Avengers are still in a scientifically advanced hidden land in the Andes which doesn't appear to have any connection with the Inhumans' recently introduced scientifically advanced hidden land in the Andes.
My memories of this one are vague, to put it mildly. Is this the issue where we first get hints of the Masked Marauder's true identity?
In a sensational development, we get the origin of both the Black Panther and Klaw, in one titanic tale.
It's a classic story but I'm not sure what that entity is on the cover. It seems to bear no resemblance to anything that's actually inside the comic.
New penciller Jazzy John Romita arrives with a bang as we get a classic cover and then the reveal of the true identity of Spidey's greatest foe.
This tale clearly has something to do with A.I.M.
Don't ask me what.
I don't have a clue.
In which, even when armed with the Cosmic Cube, the Red Skull still can't get within a million miles of beating Captain America. What a complete and total wally.
Subby and Iron Man are still slugging it out.
I could be wrong but I suspect this tale is drawn by Jack Kirby instead of the two characters' usual artist Gene Colan.
I think this is the build-up to Thor meeting Ego for the first time.
With that, and Tana Nile's huge big wide head thrown in, how could anyone not love the strip during this era?
Not quite on the same level as the aforementioned Thor epic, the X-Men tangle with a bunch of foes whose presence on a cover has never convinced anyone to part company with their money.
