Okay, so now we've reached part 3 of my collection inventory project. 4 long boxes in and I've done DC from 1994 and Eclipse from 1987. That means it's time for Marvel from 1976! Understand that as a kid, I was a total card-carrying member of the Merry Marvel Marching Society (except for, you know, actually having the card

However, the 1970s were the time before comic shops, when comics were gotten at Supermarkets, Drugstores and even(gasp!) newstands. Sometimes it was catch as catch can, since there was no good system for getting back issues and if you missed it, you missed it forever (or so it seemed to a kid).
Here we have an example of one I missed the first few issues for, but when I found it, I grabbed on with both hands. I give you Super-Villain Team-Up!

4 pages out of 31 from Super-Villain Team-Up #6.
