PART FOUR OF BIG BEN - THE THING COVER & IMAGE GALLERY...
Alas, DONALD DOGFLY makes his last two appearances
in this latest BIG BEN IS THE THING Cover & Image Gallery.
Drawn by HUNT EMERSON, I don't think Donald has appeared any-
where since. It would be interesting to learn who currently owns the
copyright, as it would be nice if Hunt could revive the character.
Looking back, the comic wasn't too bad, but the name was a bit
naff and the masthead wasn't exactly eye-catching or memorable. It's
interesting to speculate as to whether the mag would've enjoyed greater
success if it had been called something else - something like, I dunno -
POWERHOUSE, or something along those lines.
Now there's an idea! See if you can come up with some good
names for U.K. MARVEL mags that might've resonated better with
the readers. Go on - you know where the comments section is!
