Untitled[edit]

There were also two other publications: Fantastic and Terrific which included Marvel comics story reprints.

Sammy Shrink[edit]

I've seen that strip in an annual. Can't remember which one, but it was one of IPC's humour comics dating from the 1980s. Digifiend (talk) 12:56, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

It's... The Rubber Man[edit]

First appearing in Smash! in Issue 15 was The Rubber Man, otherwise known as Jim Hollis. Hollis had similar abilities to Marvel Comics' Mr Fantastic (Fantastic Four) and DC Comics' Elongated Man and Plastic Man. Askilaun (talk) 10:43, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

Colour Covers[edit]

Though the covers were printed in colour, during Odhams' publication they did not utilise the conventional four-colour (CMYK) model. Scans visible on the internet appear to substantiate this, but anyone with printed copies could confirm. As I remember, a solid navy blue was substituted for the more usual black (K = key) component and the cyan component (C) was left out altogether. Yellow was printed, but may (or may not) have been the "tri-yellow" (Y) used as part of the CMYK set. I also believe a solid red was printed as substitute for the magenta (M) component, which would make the covers a three- rather than a four-colour printing. I don't recall whether this method persisted after IPC took over -- though I think not.
