Marvel UK in the early Nineties
Back in 1993 Marvel UK ran a few photo features in one of their comics showing the readers what life in their office was like. (I forget which comic these pages appeared in. I saved the article but not the magazine.) Back at this time Marvel UK were based in Arundel House which was a nice central London location where they'd moved to a few years earlier from Redan Place.
Several of the people seen here are still major players in the comics industry of course: Doug Braithwaite, Dan Abnett, Liam Sharp, Paul Neary, Andy Lanning etc. David Leach (on the far right in jeans in the group shot above) is now an editor at Titan Books, and Peri Godbold (centre of the group shot in a purple top) is the designer of Panini's Doctor Who Magazine. Tragically Steve Whitaker (seen in the page below) passed away in 2008 far too young at 52.
