Retro Review: Strange Tales # 178

Well when it rains it pours.  First vacation interrupts my column and now computer problems cause a major slow down and eventual fix!  But because of this, I’m running yet another reprint.  But unless you’ve been here from the very beginning of my columns, I doubt you’ve read this one!  So without further ado ……

Comic Review: Scorpion # 1

I’m just back from vacation, but have no time to write up a Fabulous Find, or even do a quick new review, so I’m again reprinting one of my first columns from 2010.  I suspect many, if not most, of you have not had the chance to read it, so for your reading pleasure ……

Fabulous Find # 17: The Voices of Marvel Record

Welcome back to another Fabulous Find!  This week I’ve pulled out my copy of the 1965 flexible record entitled; “The Voices Of Marvel”.  This was part of the 1965/1966 official Merry Marvel Marching Society membership kit.  Unfortunately, I did not join up back then, and therefore I do not have the rest of the kit, but I did…
