*Collected Editions: Two classic compilations from Buster for your consideration this week. Following on from the success of its first volume, Rebellion has released a second paperback of the Leopard From Lime Street, collecting the deeds of a…somewhat familiar costumed crusader. Plucky orphan? Check. Radioactive critter inadvertently bestowing strange powers? Check. Ailing aunt? Check. Part-time job as a newspaper photographer? Check. Ah, but this do-gooder – Billy Farmer, variously known as ‘Leopardboy’, ‘Leopardman’, or ‘The Beast’ – is a 13-year old schoolboy who has an abusive uncle as well as an ailing aunt, so that’s obviously completely different from Sp*der-M*n! Whatever the similarities, ‘Leopard’ was a huge hit, running almost ten years, and beating out previous record holder ‘Fishboy’ for the title of Buster’s most enduring adventure series: this second volume carries on in fine style, written by Tom Tully and featuring the artistic talents of Mike Western and Eric Bradbury. Brand new at £15. Also, back in stock: Von Hoffman’s Invsion Vol 1. Admit it – narratively speaking, who doesn’t love a mad scientist? Especially one with a habit of enlarging animals to many times their natural size for nefarious purposes? Well, the readers of the short-lived weekly Jet in 1971 certainly did, as Nazi genius Von Hoffman, following a 25-year imprisonment, sent his super-sized animal accomplices out to wreak vengeful destruction on national monuments, military encampments and… church fetes? Hm. Anyway, even though Jet lasted a scant 22 issues, ‘Von Hoffman’s Invasion’ carried on into the merged Buster & Jet for a much longer stint, with writer Tom Tully and artist Eric Bradbury clearly enjoying coming up with ever more outlandish variations on the ‘unfeasibly embiggened’ theme. This paperback volume is brand new at £13.
