Foreign Comic Book Covers: Strange and Titans!

foreigncovers
Time for another gallery of foreign comic book covers, and this installment focuses on Strange and Titans (because these are out of order). Strange focused on older Marvel stories, while Titans reprinted stories mostly from the 1980s (there's only one of those covers in today's gallery, thankfully).

Here's an issue of Titans that clearly reprints an X-Men issue!

At least the first bunch of issues of Strange reprinted origin stories, and as you can see, there's the typewriter from Origins of Marvel Comics on these coves, as well as a head shot of Stan Lee and the heroes whose origins are being covered!

Some of these hero shots look like they were done especially for these books!

I like that this one cover has Stan's head with the half-Spidey mask on it!

When the cover on the right was prepared, someone must've decided it was more fun to vary the Stan Lee headshot, so we seem to have decided Stan prefers Medusa over Ms. Marvel!

We're back to the standard Stan headshot for the above issues, but then they started to get creative...

...even if it was just for one cover!

I'm guessing at this point, they were running translations of The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe.

They also did some special albums, such as this one reprinting the Marvel Fun Book!

With this cover, we take our leave of the Foreign Covers, but there's more to come!
