Marvel’s Secret Artist! The Wrecking Crew!

Back in the 1980s Marvel UK reprinted some of the stories that originated Stateside, and one of them was the weekly Secret Wars. At the beginning of some of the issues they produced some original material of their own, called Marvel’s Secret Artist. The premise is that some kind of monster who liked to pencil was lurking in Marvel UK’s offices and would sneak out at night and draw freaky version of the characters in Secret Wars before the staff could capture him. It was pretty fun stuff, and every Wednesday I’ve been presenting them, but this is the last one. Secret Wars lasted for over 80 issues but the Secret Artist strip just ended abruptly in the 16th issue. Hope you’ve enjoyed them.

And that's it from the staff at Marvel UK!

Is that a pile of shite? They never had that when they helped take Avengers Mansion

    Very belatedly – there was one more issue that featured the Secret Artist, finally revealing him clearly. #25.
