HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope one-and-all had a great festive break.
To start the New Year off... here is the first in a series of random on-sale-this-month blasts-from-the-past: the eighth issue of the revived THE MIGHTY WORLD OF MARVEL from early 1984.
MWOM and the short-lived THE DAREDEVILS had merged the previous month, a combination that bolstered MWOM by adding first-run Captain Britain adventures, Night Raven text stories, the Showcase feature and various text features. Unfortunately, to clear space MWOM jettisoned the New X-Men reprints, ending a run that dated back some five years via MARVEL SUPERHEROES to RAMPAGE MONTHLY.
The blow was softened by making Frank Miller's four-part Wolverine series the latest limited series to appear in MWOM.
The Daredevils logo vanished from the cover after the tenth issue but the Captain Britain strip continued through to issue sixteen. The seventeenth issue was the last.
