Marvel M-Ad-Ness: The Evolution of Amazing Adventures

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Today we're looking at more of Marvel's Groovy Age ads. This time, let's zoom in on Amazing Adventures, which ran 39 issues (May, 1970-August, 1976). The following ads give us a snapshot of the major phases of AA, from the Kirby-helmed Inhumans, to the Thomas/Adams Inhumans era, to the Beast getting his star-turn, to the introduction of War of the Worlds/Killraven as AA's final, longest running feature (issues 18-39). How 'bout that? You got a quickie history lesson, some cool Kirby, Adams, Kane, and Romita art, and it didn't cost ya anything but time! Catch ya on the flipside!

  1. The Black Widow series had excellent art (and pretty poor stories), and virtually every issue had a scene of Natasha showering or changing into her fighting togs, that was absolutely essential to the plot and not just thrown in there to stimulate adolescent boys. No sir!
