1992: AMAZING HEROES: THE MARVEL-UK UNIVERSE LAUNCHES

Today, Slow Robot ushers in the Marvel-UK Universe (M-UK-U) with this article from US pro-zine AMAZING HEROES 202, June 1992 (actually the penultimate issue: the double-numbered 203/204 was the last regular edition).

GENESIS '92 was the working title for the five original M-UK US-format monthlies (THE KNIGHTS OF PENDRAGON, MOTORMOUTH, WARHEADS, HELL'S ANGEL and the limited series DIGITEK) which also, in edited form, formed the inaugural line-up for the UK fortnightly OVERKILL.

DEATH'S HEAD II, the first of the M-UK monthlies specifically produced for the US market, wasn't originally part of the 'Overkill family' but his (brief) runaway sales success ensured he appeared there (and everywhere else) as well.

Slow Robot will have lots more on the M-UK-U in future postings.
