So often, when I set down to write an installment in this series of articles, I do so without joy. Then again, that’s the very idea of the column; I put my sanity on the line to read the worst of the worst so that you fair readers never have to. I suppose you could say that I’m a hero, sure… but I don’t do it for the glory, I do it because if I don’t no one will.

In terms of comic bromances, there are few (if any) more celebrated than today’s honorees. The 1970s were one hell of a time to be reading comic books, and in the pages of Marvel’s magazines the authors, as they still do today, would look to the cinema for the sort of subject matter readers wanted.

And maybe… just maybe, you’d get both of those things in one title.
