1979: BILL BIXBY INTERVIEW from RAMPAGE (Marvel UK)







Don't make me angry.  You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.

Here's a really nice multi-page interview with the late Bill Bixby (aka Doctor David "Bruce" Banner) from MARVEL UK's RAMPAGE MAGAZINE issue 6, January 1979 (the cusp of the Marvel Revolution).

I'm not sure whether this was conducted specifically for Marvel UK or whether it's recycled from another source.

  1. Hey Slow,

    Good to have you back after the hiatus. Hope all is well with you.

    I'd guess the Bixby interview has been lifted from Hulk Magazine #10...

    (Hulk Magazine was, of course, initially called "The Rampaging Hulk" and was the source for the Hulk strips in the UK's Rampage Monthly)

    1. Hey hey! Thanks for that. I'm pretty sure you're right. Despite having STARBURST in the M-UK fold, I doubt the London office had easy access to the stars of a hit Hollywood TV show. And the interview does seem to be conspicuously uncredited.

  2. Yep, Hulk #10, although the original had different photos (and in full colour!) interestingly, this interview is slightly edited ... the original had Bixby saying "its a way of making love" at the very end of the final paragraph.
