Charity Shop comics: Comic Relief 1991

A fine visit to Hackney Oxfam today. For £4.50 I got 5 vintage Fighting Fantasy books, a Morecambe and Wise annual, this awesome bit of schlock horror from 1980...

Please click to read some truly inspired blurb

and an abysmal Comic Relief special from 1991. Never mind the fact that it features a galaxy of my least favourite British comedy personalities, the real horror of this comic lies in it's cheesy appropriation of Marvel and DC legends to raise money for charity. I won't bore you with a lengthy analysis, these two panels should serve to give you a flavour of this awful publication.
