The Newton Comics supplement in the Sunday Observer: 16 March 1975

Following on from the 9 March 1975 supplements, here's pics of the four Marvel pages from the Sunday Observer 16 March 1975:

As you can see these pages belong between the segments of each story in the previous two instalments. In other words, the reading order is 1. Inner supplement 9 March 1975; 2. Supplement 16 March 1975; 3. Outer supplement 9 March 1975.

The sequences are sometimes modified to fit the pages. Some sequences are compressed by omitting the odd panel, whilst other sequences are missing chunks by the page. One might suggest that if these supplements were tryouts for the comic books, this is where Newton honed their particular brand of editing...
