As the 1980's blossomed in the United Kingdom, at time when Margaret Thatcher was ascendant as Prime Minister and trading kisses with our own President Ronald "Ronnie" Reagan, unemployment mushroomed as British Steel cut jobs, and a Beatles reunion becomes an impossibility, Marvel UK decided the time was ripe to launch some parody magazines. Dez Skinn was in charge at the time and he launched the title Frantic which drew from material developed for Marvel's Crazy magazine.
And then he launched Marvel Madhouse which used both stories and artwork from the over a decade old Not Brand Echh. I for one like to see foreign versions of a cover to see how the colors might changed or the layouts might differ. In this case these Marie Severin covers are topped by a lively and memorable logo.
The chain of NBE cover reprints ends when an interior image of Forbush Man is used with new images to decorate issue eight.
There are two more Marie Severin reprinted covers than the book shifts focus welcoming a certain misplaced duck into its fold.
While the art says Howard the Duck, there are still blurbs that announce new "old" NBE material inside. These covers of course come from issue of Howard and are by Frank Brunner and John Buscema.
