*Boys’ Adventure & War Comics: Technically a Holiday Special, but in a format like a paperback Annual, the Valiant Space Specials were squarebound and 100 pages cover to cover, featuring original, non-reprint adventures of Valiant favourites with a space theme – Captain Hurricane, Kelly’s Eye, the Steel Claw, and yes, even Billy Bunter and the Nutts getting into the act! Plus other sci-fi stories without series characters. This is the second (and final) Valiant Space Special, and is less common than its ‘parent’ of the previous year. The paperback format means that most copies have usually sustained damage, but this one, albeit with some light corner ‘bumps’ owing to the extra-wide format, is an attractive VG/FN, with only minor creasing in the lower right cover corner and generally excellent interiors.
