Went shopping a couple of weeks back in Tesco and they have a 'Dobbies' home & garden centre within the store. As I was browsing in there I noticed some Marvel canvas prints tucked under a shelf and part of the display box laying on the floor. I could see they were having a refurb so asked a member of staff what was going to happen to the display part. "Do you want it?" was his reply.....say no more true believers!!!!

Well done John!

Old Stan would say you're R.F.O. (Real Frantic One)  for noticing that print and a F.F.F. ((Fearless Front Facer) – an honorary title bestowed for devotion to Marvel above and beyond the call of duty) for saving it! You're a real K.O.F. (Keeper Of The Flame)!

Nuff said!

With all the Marvel themed clothing that's around now days my kids hate it when I tell them which artist drew a particular character, or which issue of a particular comic an image comes from. lol!
