53 YEARS AGO - The Kirby influence?

Troll dolls became one of the United States' biggest fads from the autumn of 1963 through 1965.
    Actually Ulik the Troll was introduced in THOR #137 which didn't hit the shops until November 1966...
    For the next few years Ulik was practically a supporting character in the title. This page is from THOR #173 (1970).

  1. It is thought that Troll Dolls (Damn Things) and the popularity of the Beatles in the US were a direct reaction, a rebound from the depression and anxiety that the killing of JFK caused in the nation.
