This comic, along with Tales of Suspense 64 and an early Fantastic Four was my introduction to Marvel Comics. Before them I’d only ever come across DCs. Somehow I never threw this comic away and as I read it so often as a child I wrecked it so its never been in a good enough condition to sell!!
Here is a Strange Tales Annual 1 cover in far better condition than mine. However, unlike my issue this one lacks the Thorpe and Porter UK price stamp of 1/6d (One Shilling and Sixpence)!!
The above comics had been purchased from a Second-hand Book stall. The next Marvel Comic I bought (in fact the first NEW Marvel Comic I ever bought off the spinner racks) was Fantastic Four Annual 3 containing the Wedding of Reed and Sue and a cast of thousands. The rest, as they say, is history……………
