*Marvel: No, “Hercules and Him!” is not a new buddy cop debuting soon on Netflix (though I think I may have inadvertently just pitched it…), but a reference to the heroes who make their respective Marvel Universe debuts in our featured issues. Journey into Mystery Annual #1, from 1965, saw the debut of the Prince of Power, Hercules, as Thor’s opposite number, and brawling partner/comrade-in-arms, as the exigencies of the plot demanded. Not the first Hercules in comics, nor the last – but Marvel’s well-intentioned wenching boozer is probably the best-loved iteration since the original legend! This remarkably-preserved FN+ pence issue is offered at £75. Plus… Him! Later known as Warlock, the golden-skinned godling first flashed his near-omnipotent abilities when he decided a shapely something was missing from his life – and chose Thor’s main squeeze, Lady Sif, to fill the gap! Needless to say, Thor objected, and their epic combat was recorded in Thor #165. A VG pence copy is newly in, at £50.
