This week in 1977, Don't Cry For Me, Argentina by Julie Covington was reigning supreme at Number One on the UK singles chart. What a lovely song that was - and beautifully sung.
I can think of no link whatsoever between this fact and the existence of Marvel UK, so I shall dive straight into my look at what was happening in the pages of the mags that bore today's date all those years ago.
I notice this week's cover boasts that it includes the complete colour section of last week's issue. It's not every comic that makes a boast like that.
I assume this is to do with the legendary page order mix-up that occurred last week. We can only assume the Red Skull had sabotaged the printing presses.
Only two weeks to go before the apes cease to stand supreme.
I seem to remember Luke Cage once coming up against a bunch of robot knights in a castle.
I'm assuming they're the, "Armoured assassins," mentioned on the cover blurb.
But just what were the circumstances that led Harlem's hippest hero to come up against those foes?
I must confess I can't remember.
Spider-Man finds himself turning detective as he tries to discover who murdered some scientist or other.
Reader, can you guess who the killer was?
You don't have to. I'm going to tell you.
It was a cheeky computer with a laser beam.
Quite why the scientist gave his computer a deadly laser beam, I have no idea. I mean, yes, I have given my own dear laptop a deadly laser beam but I only did that for a lark and because I know it would never use it against m- -argh! Stop it! Stop it, you cheeky laptop!
