THE POWER OF MARVEL, - PART 4!

Everybody is playing "match the comic covers" on the internet, which is a pastime that I very much enjoy partaking in, myself, just in case you hadn't already noticed that fact!
So, without any further ado, here is the next batch of covers of Power Comics that I used to have, along with their Marvel counterparts!

  1. C'mon now, JP, no slacking. You have to show us where ALL the images on the British comics come from, not just the main ones.

    1. If I can find that Subby & Doc Strange from Terrific #10 in the future, I'll add them at a later date!

    2. The Dr. Strange pic on Terrific #10 is from the cover of Strange Tales #122, and the Sub-Mariner pic is from the splash page of his first solo strip in Tales To Astonish #70 (reprinted in Sub-Mariner Annual #1 and Terrific #1).

    3. Wow! Thanks for that, Kid! It saved me searching! Will update very soon! Feel free to tell me about any others I couldn't find, particularly on Part 1 of this series, as I'd love to add them, as well!

    4. Whoops, that Subby splash was slightly different, Kid, but I managed to find the right picture. I will try and find those others soon!

    5. Oh, my bad! I should've checked, but on first glance it looks like the splash from TTA #70. The cover to Strange Tales #122 is on my blog in a cover gallery.

    6. No worries, it did lead to my finding the right one!
      That's me all over ( "should've checked" is my middle name! )
      When you make as many gaffs as I do, - THEN worry about it!
      Ha ha!

  2. Incidentally, the Iron Man pic on Fantastic #1 is redrawn from the splash page of Tales Of Suspense #41, and the Spidey pic on Pow! #1 (by Ditko, NOT Romita) is from Spider-Man Annual #1, page 14.

    1. Ah, Kid, you're a HERO, THANKS SO MUCH for these! I'll add them to Part 1! Now, all I need is Subby from Terrific #1 and I can complete the post?

    2. AHA! - Found it at last, Kid! - Redrawn from the splash of Avengers #3!
      BTW, have swapped the two Strange Tales over for yours!
      Cheers!

    3. Nae bother, JP. Incidentally, that Subby pic from the splash page of Avengers #3 first appeared in a full-page ad in Avengers #2. No doubt it was lifted from the splash in #3 before it went to print, but it appeared in #2 first.

    4. Interesting, I shall have to search for that now, too!
      I never did see an actual Avengers #2, - just like yourself, I first encountered the story in Smash, then Marvel Super-Heroes #1, ( reading over your shoulder, remember? )
