May The Force Be With You. Always.
|1977 was a big year for 6 year old me.|
It amazes me that on the day I saw Star Wars and The Jungle Book for the first time was the same day I also became an Avengers fan. At the flea market at the drive in before the movies, my parents bought me a comic book. The comic I got was Marvel Super Action #22, which reprinted The Avengers # 61 that featured The Avengers (Hawkeye, Black Panther, The Vision, The Black Knight, and guest star: Doctor Strange) battling Ymir and Surtur (who I would later discover to be Thor villains) in a story with the cool title "Some Say the World Will End in Fire... Some Say In Ice!" by the stellar creative team of Roy Thomas (writer), John Buscema (pencils), and George Klein (inks). I was enthralled by this group and would have loved to see this team together more.
