Hey Kids, Comics! (January 1975)

I'm always fascinated to see vintage photos of spinner racks and news stand displays, partially because I have such fond memories of the spinner rack at my local Store 24 in West Newton, MA where I discovered comics and partially because I would love to have a time machine to go back and buy some of these classics in mint condition. (Yes, that was the collector in me talking.) I came across this great news stand photo in a Bleeding Cool post. You can identify a number of issues, including Jungle Action Featuring The Black Panther #14 (March 1975) and  Marvel Team-Up #32 (April 1975), so that would suggest that this photo was taken in January 1975 based on the convention of dating comics three-to-four months ahead of their actual release.  Click on the image below to see the full photo.
