UK Comic weeklies and Tabloids14472

Collector comixfan59 private msg quote post Address this user
So I saw a few mentions on International Comics and a couple expired topics but no mention of the British weekly titles printed oversized and on Cheap Pulp paper. I have been collecting some for a while now and recently acquired a run of Spider-Man weekly reprints from 1970-73 starting with the 1st Mysterio, Kraven and Goblin as well as several other 1st appearances. They have some cool if at times Tacky production values and trippy ads as well as new art and sometimes new covers and lots of Pin Ups and such.
Thought everyone might get a kick out of seeing them. I also have tons of the Horror and Conan including 1st Ghost Rider and Blade in the Dracula Lives Weekly. Then there are the Captain Britain weeklies.

Anyone else collect the weeklies?

I have a handful of the British Spider-Man Comics Weekly books and some Pocket-Sized books too. I only have scans of a few of them right now.

Here are the Marvel weeklies and some other weeklies that I have acquired. I don't really collect them, but I have bought them when I ran across them. For me, the joy in collecting foreign comics is the thrill of finding something different. Whether it's a different format, paper, language or even cover art, it intrigues me.

@esaravo its amazing how even cropping the cover art differently can effect the feel of a cover. That Spider-Man Weekly 57 looks more awesome to me than the ASM 59!! And I just noticed that there are guns on the UK cover, but not on the American!!!







Edit, plus the UK colorist did a better job imo.

@Jesse_O - I agree, the UK version looks better, and I never noticed the gun differences before - nice catch!
