They WON'T be here from January. This is a MARVEL UK House Ad, published in the US books cover-dated February 1994, for another victim of the GENESIS IMPLOSION that was about to overtake the entire Genesis line.
The WILD ANGELS limited series was intended to combine DARK ANGEL (previously Hell's Angel, until the lawyers came calling) and WILD THING, two existing Marvel UK characters, in an extended team-up.
The English language editions were scrapped but Pino Rinaldi was a sufficient draw (ho-hum) in his native Italy for Panini to collect the four completed issues into a black & white one-shot, translated into Italian of course. The original books were planned to be in colour and its possible Panini opted for b&w because the colouring on all four books hadn't been completed when Marvel UK shuttered. And, of course, it's cheaper.
The advert is also another example of the bonkers advertising campaigns that M-UK used to try and revive their fortunes in those final months.
According to my calculations, this is my 1000th post since I started STARLOGGED (as Slow Robot) on 16 January 2012. A cause for a moment's celebration me thinks...
I never expected I would reach so many posts so quickly and I reckon this has evolved into a fine repository for all things geeky and oft overlooked. I even broke one exclusive. I NEVER expected that to happen. It's also focused my mind and I've discovered lots of things I didn't previously know (or, had long since forgotten) in the course of compiling my posts and - I hope - some of that has been passed on. I've no intention of stopping any time soon. Thanks for passing by and - to those that post comments - it's much appreciated!
