Odhams Press

Died 3/2/1968


The first issue of Terrific was published by Odhams Press on 15th April 1967 and came with a free gift of an 'Iron-on - Iron Man Transfer'. With the free gift it would be worth around £15 today.

Terrific had the same format of US comic SuperHero comic strips as in it's sister comic 'Fantastic' and it was into Fantastic that it was subsumed after 43 issues on 10th February 1968.

There was one Terrific Annual from 1969.

Are you SURE there was ever a Terrific Annual? Some comic guides say so, but I'm pretty sure there was never one published. Comics of the time certainly don't advertise it alongside their other annuals, and I've never seen a copy (or even seen a cover repro of one). I think it's a case of some collectors assuming there was one because all the other Odhams titles had annuals, but Terrific was such a flop (unfortunately) that I doubt there would be an annual published two years after the comic's short run. - Lew Stringer

I think Lew is correct. I was a massive FANTASTIC and TERRIFIC fan and got the FANTASTIC annuals. However,there was never a TERRIFIC annual advertised at the time and in over thirty years of searching and three years trawling the internet have NEVER heard from anyone possessing a TERRIFIC annual or see a copy of one online. When I did my Odhams deal I DID ask but the reaction was "doubt it". End of story. - Terry Hooper,Black Tower/COMIC BITS

great to spot stuff on the comics.. I have all of the comics from both the series as they ran from one to the next without a break...they were a great read so I stashed them .. and the free gifts all in tact..and I think one of the fantastic annuals... what is the following for these comics in the uk ..as they were pretty brill.. dr strange in particular.. would be nice to see more about them than wikpipedia. - Steve Woods
