These covers all feature the adventures of the 4th Doctor between 1981 and 1985. Artists are: Dave Gibbons, Gene Day, Walt Simonson and Earl Norem.
For me, one of the bonuses in collecting retro advertising is all the interesting and varied comics and magazines I get to flick through. When presented with new materials my first impulse is to train my eyes upon the adverts on offer. After this it’s the turn of whatever other delights are contained within: comic strips, articles, interviews, photos, puzzles, posters, catalogue inserts… and of course the cover itself.
So I was pretty blown away by these Hulk covers from UK’s The Mighty World Of Marvel dating between 1974 and 1978. Featured artists / inkers are Herb Trimpe, Sal Buscema, Joe Staton, Tom Palmer and Ernie Chan.
With an incredible library of over 5,000 characters, the Marvel Universe is packed with amazing heroes that have been represented across generations in comic books, toy lines, video games, household merchandise, TV shows and films. TVTA is happy to present a selection of adverts from around the world showing just some of the items available from the Marvel Universe during the 70s and 80s.
