*Marvel: In the second issue of the Avengers, the team faced the menace of the Space Phantom, an extraterrestrial invader with the novel m.o. of teleporting beings into a limbo dimension, and assuming their forms and powers for his own ends. Swiftly discovering the power of the Hulk, the transmogrified Space Phantom went on a rampage, with his fellow-Avengers finding it all too easy to believe he’d turned to the Dark Side – resulting in some anger when the real Hulk returned, and quit the team in a huff! This copy of #2 is an Apparent FN/VF: tight at staples, flat, glossy, vibrant colours and creamy interior pages. The ‘Apparent’ modifier, however, is because of a slight right edge trim and, more importantly, a thoughtless previous owner’s removal of two interior ad pages (4 sides), neatly done and not affecting the story, which is complete and intact. A decent copy of an early Avengers epic: App. FN/VF p on sale at £215.
