I couldn't say with any certainty, but it looks like it could be by Larry Lieber, imitating a mix of styles from other artists. He sometimes did composites of figures from different sources. (I note that the web pattern is unfinished above his waist.)

Very Romita-esque (Romita Senior) but that seems unlikely for the Marvel UK office. Ron Wilson did a lot of the pencils and this could be him, but if so I would expect it to be more blocky. Something makes me want to say Dave Hunt on inks - it reminds me so much of his work over Byrne on Marvel Team Up, and that seems the right era.

Any more of these Titans centre spreads? Marshall Rogers did a few crackers, including one for Doc Strange that was basically a giant eyeball. I would love to see that again…

(ILYA, but Unknown pretty much covers it, yeah)

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...
