Here's the next selection of underrated/seldom (if ever) played tunes. This period of the band is especially dear to me as I was a young adult at the time of the release of these albums.

My favourite tunes are here, even though it took time to appreciate some of them back then, especially Ace Frehley's solo stuff Wiped Out, What's On Your Mind and Fractured Mirror. The latter soon became my all time second favourite instumental, the first being Albatross by Fleetwood Mac.

'Fraid I didn't manage to get past Peter Criss' tenure in KISS so there will be a further selection covering the 1980's and later in a future post.

Drop me a line to let me know what you think about these tracks, you can use the comment on this blog button if you wish.

See ya,

I "borrowed" the following scans and text from mechanicaljewel at Live I fondly recall the comic, "The Daredevils" from which they are lifted, it featured reprint comics and new editorial and comic-strip material, notably "Captain Britain". I thought it deserved to go 'viral'. To read the text click on each scan for the larger version.

Invisible Girls and Phantom Ladies: How far have we come?

Back in 1983, Alan Moore wrote a 10-page article on the portrayal of women in comics and the presence/lack thereof of female creators. It was serialized in Marvel UK's The Daredevils #4-6.

It's really interesting to see things like this, written 25 years ago, and to address the question 'how far have we really come?'

British Marvel Apes Colour Pictures

These images were printed on the back cover of Marvel's "Planet of the Apes" comic which was published in the U.K. from October 1974 to February 1977 when it was merged into the "Mighty World of Marvel" weekly comic. The U.K. Apes comic also included some interior black and white text and photo features about the Apes T.V. series that were never published in the U.S. edition of the magazine. I will scan and post these extra text features at a later date...
