Why no mention at all of UK Marvel comics? I started collecting at 6, probably didn’t even *see* a US Marvel comic till about 11. Also, curious lack of any reference to Watchmen…

seanhowe:

US fans are barely exposed to the comics produced in the UK. Sorry, but it’s true! Outside of Captain Britain, I can’t think of a single Marvel UK character that popped up in the comics produced over here.

But worry not! Rob Kirby is writing a book just for you:

As far as WATCHMEN…well, there are a ton of excellent DC titles that aren’t referenced in the book. There’s only so much you can fit into 500 pages.

Man, I want to read that Marvel UK book more than is healthy. Those comics – especially the early 1980s reprints – were weirdly omnipresent as a kid, and because of that, an important part of my childhood.
