October 1967

The first words that spring to mind on rediscovering this old comic are 'Lucozade' and 'Mumps'. Both pretty odd words when you think about it. 1967 was the year I discovered Marvel comic reprints with Terrific, bought for me by my auntie Judy, who took pity on my hideously swollen hamster cheeks. This was an illness that also required the obligatory orange cellophane wrapped bottle of a drink that they are now so desperately trying to turn into a cool brand.
In October 1967, drinking Lucozade was an unbearable ordeal to a Mumps-ridden child. Terrific was my compensation.
