*Boys’ Adventure & War Comics: Marvelman is a character with a chequered past. Originally conceived by Mick Anglo for Len Miller’s comic line when his rights to publish Captain Marvel & Company ran out, Marvelman, Young Marvelman and the gang were thus conceived as ersatz versions of the Fawcett family of heroes for the British market. Highly popular at the time, Marvelman ran to some 370 (mostly weekly) issues into the early 1960’s before disappearing. Not forever, though, since comic buffs will know all about the 1980’s revival by Alan Moore which led to the Miracleman version of the character and all the convoluted publishing history that continues to this day. Anyway, we have 10 issues of Marvelman new in from the late 1950’s for you to see what all the fuss was about way back when.
