893scratchchin-thumb.gif I have a Question what was the first Pre-Hero Marvel when did it all start and what does it take to be a pre-hero marvel does it have to have a Big Monster like Fin Fang Foom in it or is science fiction and Horor also part of Pre-Hero marvel I know my eairler Strange Tales didn't have the Big Monster Storys just mostly Horor are they considered Pre-Hero marvels. When I hear Pre-Hero Marvel I think BIG MONSTERS what does everyone else think about this? Hear is a Strange Tales #49 anyway have a look cool.gif

For me Pre-Hero Marvels mean Monster books with either Kirby and/or Ditko covers & art.

Thanks Jayman and Pov,! I love these old pre-hero books. Pov, I have a raw copy of Annual 1 if you're interested. It's nice, probably a VG/F or so, PM me if you're interested.

 

Say, who can forget Sserpo?!!

Wasn't Sserpo played by Al Pacino in the movie version?

 

Or was he one of the Marx Brothers.......I forget... confused-smiley-013.gif

I love these books, don't get me wrong but that's such a silly cover!

"I tell you I'm convinced that hostile life does exist on other planets!"

 

Uh, yeah, just look out of the window teach! foreheadslap.gif

They're completely goofy, that's what's so endearing.

 

I mean, the guy who's razzing the kid and calling him "Teacher's Pet" is wearing a BOW TIE. Yep, standard issue for most schoolyard bullies! The "East Side Bow Tie-ers" were the most feared gang in the 'hood makepoint.gif
