Who Read Comics (New Formula!)

We are back in August 1967, the Summer of Love, and Rolling Stone Mick Jagger and then girlfriend Marianne Faithfull are boarding a plane at Heathrow. Keen eyes will have noticed that Faithfull is not clutching some beauty mag that a stereotypical view on what an It Girl should be reading may prescribe, but rather a couple of comics.

A quick web search revealed that she went for DC’s Mystery in Space #108 (June 1966), featuring Ultra the Multi-Alien, along with Unknown Worlds #49 from August 1966 (from ACG).
