Killing Time In The Seventies.
A friendly visitor passed on some amazing issues of TV Action. A British comic publication from that formative decade. The sort of comic you would have been able to pick up in any corner shop or newsagents. British comics of that period were just among the best of the genre ever published. Great heroes and heroines in great stories where an epic could be told in just three pages or even less. In those days I never saw comics as the poor relation of television or cinema. It was just a powerful medium in its own right and a comic in your hand was a valued artifact that could be reviewed and enjoyed again and again.
I cherish having grown up through a period when comic books were at the very top of their game rather than lament the passing of a time when great comics were common place. Things change and time always moves on for good or ill. It is what is and we are what we are.
Even we Mutos.
