Panini UK to pay tribute to Marie Severin

Main cover art: Jim Cheung.
Next month's issue of The Mighty World of Marvel will be a 100 page edition to include a tribute to the artist Marie Severin, who passed away recently.

The comic, published by Panini UK in Kent, will carry an article on her career plus two humour strips reprinted from Not Brand Echh, the satirical comic that Marvel published in the 1960s.
The Inedible Bulk! Art by Marie Severin.
I'm pleased that editor Scott Gray has chosen humour strips to represent Marie Severin's work as she was an excellent cartoonist as well as being great at the dramatic stuff. 

The rest of the issue will continue the regular serials Guardians of the Galaxy, Hawkeye, and the Lee/Ditko Doctor Strange stories as well as beginning the Thing and Human Torch serial from Marvel 2 In One.

The Mighty World of Marvel No.9 goes on sale on 15th November, priced $4.50.

The current issue (below) has just been published and is in WH Smith, comic shops, and selected newsagents now.

Excellent. As much as I would always go to Kull for a Severin fix, Marie was an incredible 'bigfoot' cartoonist.
