Fantastic Annual 1970. In the sixties, British comics were all about war and sport. These annuals, published by Odhams, simplybtepeinted a batch of imported Marvel comics – this edition features the X-Men versus Frankenstein’s Monster, Doctor Doom’s origin story, plus some cracking Iron Man and Thor stories. Picked up from a boot-fair when I was small, I think this was probably my first taste of comics. Decades later, it still lives up to its title. The two-colour pages are particularly lovely. And it smells great.
