52 YEARS AGO TODAY

If you had become a Marvel zombie within the last two years and had a quarter it would have difficult to resist buying this comic with its 40 pages of Kirby art that would be new to you - plus 15 Ditko pages and 13 Heck pages!

  1. i was much the same, although i came into comics a couple years after you did. never could get interested in marvel comics until just after kirby left... and then wished like mad i'd gotten his stuff when it was on the racks! however, i still love swan's old world's finest and legion of superheroes stories!

    great blog! i check it every day!

  2. Oh, how well I know that feeling. I only bought the FF, but turned my nose up at Cap A and Thor for a while. Now, I kick myself for not buying the Avengers, X-men and TOS/TTA or even ST as they were coming out! Unfortunately, at 12 cents a pop, your allowance of a dime a week doesn't go very far back in 1964-65.

  3. Hey I resent being called a zombie. I prefer fan, LOL. Yeah even though I had all these originals (oh I wish I still did...$$) I remember buying this just in case I lost the others.
