1972 No.17, 1980 No.21 and Clash of the Titans special (all in full)...

Another bundle week, as a few weeks ago I picked up the Clash of the Titans Look-in special.  COTT was the last film to utilise the skill of Ray Harryhausen as an animator, Ray's most famous work before this is probably Jason and the Argonauts.  The special is not as I would have liked, drawn by Michael Noble or indeed any of the Look-in regulars, but instead looks like it was poached from a Marvel adaptation, it's that American style of art.  It's great though, just two complaints, The Kraken doesn't look anywhere near scary enough, he looks positively cute! and also, Perseus kills the Medusa by hurling his shield at her, the shield slicing her head off, in the film he cuts off her head with his sword.
To go with the special there is No.17 from 1972 and No.21 from 1980...There is of course no 81 page on the checklist site yet, so click the picture below to get the Titans issue...
