1980: VALOUR and FUTURE TENSE LAUNCH ADVERT

In October 1980, Marvel UK launched two new weeklies: VALOUR and FUTURE TENSE.

The fantasy-themed VALOUR didn't last long whilst FUTURE TENSE (bouyed by two mergers including the luckless Valour) couldn't capture the imagination of the Star Wars generation for long (Marvel may have been their own worst enemy here: 1981 saw them also publishing DOCTOR WHO MONTHLY, STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK MONTHLY and, latterly, BLAKE'S 7 MONTHLY).

We'll have a full rundown on FUTURE TENSE SOON.
