SLOW-ROBOT'S TIMEWARP: THAT WAS THE WEEK THAT WAS
- We celebrated our 2000th post (hurrah!) with the TV advert for 2000AD Prog 1 here.
- We completed our review of Marvel UK's widescreen weekly THE TITANS with the final part of our cover gallery and a selection of House Ads.
- We looked back at MARVEL SUPER SPECIAL MAGAZINE, Marvel's main outlet for movie adaptations in the late seventies and early eighties, here and here.
- We unearthed the STAR WARS WATCH and DOCTOR WHO T-SHIRT adverts from early-eighties Marvel UK.
- We went back to ARUNDEL HOUSE, UK base of the Annex of Ideas in the late eighties and mid-nineties.
- We dug up a vintage UK press advert for (the original) CLASH OF THE TITANS.
- We looked back at Glen Larson's SF-trucker show THE HIGHWAYMAN.
- And looked back at the TV action show career of Richard Lynch, including a chance to watch his 1979 tele-flick VAMPIRE.
