From (early) December 1985: the 666th (appropriately) and final issue of MARVEL UK's long-running (since 1973) SPIDER-MAN COMIC, languishing in its last incarnation as the kid-friendly SPIDEY COMIC. An inauspicious end for a bastion of the British comics scene.
The ol' Web-slinger is even relegated to the corner box of his own last issue. Oh the indignity.
For many readers, the last issue of the venerable long-runner was probably issue 634 from some seven months previous. That (somewhat slung-together) issue was the last to pitch itself at the traditional Spider-crowd. From the following week, it became THE SPIDER-MAN COMIC with a new remit to appeal to younger readers rather than split the audience for the just-launched MARVEL SUPERHEROES SECRET WARS fortnightly.
This final name-change kicked-in from issue 651. At the end of the run, Spidey Comic was publishing a (non-Marvel) adaptation of the Disney movie THE BLACK CAULDRON, SPIDEY SUPER STORIES ("The Vanisher Shows Up) and THE EWOKS (based on the yet-to-be-seen-in-the-UK animated series). The festive cover (probably a little premature as this would have been on sale during the second week of December) was justified by a two-page article pegged to the impending release of the Dudley Moore vehicle SANTA CLAUS: THE MOVIE.
The one ray of light amongst the dross was the announcement that Spider-man would return "in a few weeks" (more like three months) in a new weekly that would also feature the Fantastic Four (they had to wait a few weeks into the run to make their premiere). No mention of the Zoids.
