Martin Landau 1928 - 2017.......1972 No.1 and 1980 No.1 in full...

It was with great sadness that I woke to the news that actor Martin Landau had died, He was big part of my childhood first as Rollin' Hand in Mission: Impossible, then as Commander John Koenig in Space: 1999 which of course became part of Look-in's story when it joined as a strip in 1975, drawn first by John M. Burns and then by Mike Noble.  Of course he had a long a distinguished career and played a lot of other parts but these are the parts for which he is best remembered, my condolences to his family and Barbara (Bain).  RIP.

We step into 1972 for the first issue and then we take a step back in the 1980's collection for No.1 of that year. Dan has sent me the missing Star Trek poster/feature, so I am able to up that issue, he has also sent me a complete No.2 along with the free gift, the Bubble Yum Bubble Measurer no less!  You can have that issue and the gift on next weekends update...
