Is there a list somewhere compiling all of the Marvel UK Hardcover Annuals that contained original text stories?

Since many annuals didn't have dates on the covers, and so there's often confusion as to which year they came out in (copyright date was usually a year earlier than cover date, when the latter was given, to prolong shelf life), I've included links to cover images where possible, so that if you plan to go hunting these down you can do so by comparing covers – different sellers don't always concur as to which year the annual should be titled with. Note that all the Hulk annual stories have been recently re-released in the Hulk: From the UK Vaults tpb, alongside other Marvel UK Hulk stories. Also, the list doesn't include the Thundercats, GI Joe, William Tell or Transformers Annuals.

Thanks for this list! Is there something wrong with the linked site, though? None of those links work when I click them.

Hmm. Seems to be a security feature. They work fine, if you've already been to the main site, but if you try to directly open the image without having visited the page it is on first, then you get a "No image" message.

Regarding the year of release, do they not have full indicia inside the issues?

Not all of them. And the problem is, when a year is on the cover it often is a different year from the indicia - like regular comics being dated a few months ahead of actual publication, to prolong shelf life, UK annuals are generally dated the year after their release - the idea is that when parents and grandparents buy them for the kids for Christmas, and the kids open the present on Christmas Day, they don't look at the date and think "hey, this annual is old, it'll be out of date in a week."
 
As a result, when an annual isn't dated on the cover, you will some e-bayers and comic shops listing as being (say) the 1982 annual because that's what the indicia says, and other sellers, who know of the dating convention, listing the same annual as the 1983 annual. Which means if you are trying to pick the annual up, you are better off knowing what the cover looks like, than risk buying it based on the year the seller is listing it as.

Stuart V suggested I ask this in an existing thread, so I'll ask here, since I started this thread. Over the last couple weeks I've tried to post two new threads in the Marvel section and neither has appeared. When I try to post I get a message saying that they need to be approved by a mod before they'll appear. Since neither has appeared, I guess that means a mod has declined to approve them. Can any mods tell me why? I didn't include any offensive language or link to any objectionable sites, so I'd like to know what I'm doing wrong.
