I have a lot of British stuff from when I was a kid but I read them to death, so seeing your books is an awesome treat, most of my stuff is buried way back in one of my rooms, haven't seen any of them in years.

I don't actively collect British, but as with everything, I cant part with it, so it stays :)

I do have an old pic of Avengers to contribute if that helps.

I took that years ago for Andrews old site, miss that place :(

Will see if I can dig out a few more at some point

Love the Marvel UK reprints, although sometimes they really hack up the stories to fit the page counts needed. I recently ran across some of the Planet of the Apes UK issues where they went just a little bit further. The UK title had used up all the material Marvel had printed and needed fresh ape material, Rather than create new stories or wait for Marvel to create them, they decided to take the Killraven story line and to redraw the Martians as apes. Killraven was renamed the Ape Slayer.

I never knew that. It is weird.

Whenever I think there is nothing new under the sun as it relates to comics from 1970-1979, something like this shows up.  Thanks for the posts guys.

ApeSlayer!  lol

More Mighty World of Marvel silliness. Remove Iron Man, insert Spider-Man, presto new cover!

The cover's dialogue doesn't make much sense.  What would Spidey blast the demonstrators with, his repulsor rays?  But it was probably a wise decision to avoid the bukkake look of the original.
