*Modern Reprints: Recently, both DC and Marvel have issued reproductions of their classic key issues. These facsimiles are, apart from legally-necessary cover additions for modern pricing, exact, full-colour cover-to-cover replicas of the originals, including all story pages, text pages, lettercols and advertisements – though we strongly advise against sending off for anything from the ads! This update, Marvel offers us facsimiles of Alpha Flight #1 (the Canadian Crusaders get their own series), Daredevil #181 (Bullseye Vs Elektra), Howard the Duck #1 (The Foul-mouthed fowl gets his own title), Marvel Presents #3 (Guardians of the Galaxy’s first ongoing series), Marvel Spotlight #12 (1st Son of Satan), and X-Men #137 (First death of Jean Grey/Phoenix). DC meanwhile brings us only one new facsimile – but it’s a cracker! Batman #251, ‘The Joker’s Five-Way Revenge!’, the O’Neil/Adams classic which relaunched the Joker’s career from the ludicrous camp of the Batman TV show to the definitive nemesis of the Batman he is today. Pictured: Batman #251 facsimile at £4. Details on all the others may be found in our online catalogue.
