*Boys’ Adventure & War Comics: At the beginning of 1977, around about the onset of punk music, a comic was launched that captured the zeitgeist of the times, darker, more anarchic and anti-establishment than anything that had come before it in the British comics world. The first issue dated 26th February 1977 launched the careers of long-running series ‘Flesh’, ‘MACH 1’, ‘Invasion’, ‘Harlem Heroes’ and a revised version of the classic Eagle hero ‘Dan Dare’. This copy is VG, a tight, flat copy with good staples and off-white pages; just faint discolouration in one small location where the free gift was originally taped into the cover. The free gift – Space Spinner – is also present, in FN condition, clean and unmarked. The debut issue of the series which redefined British comics complete with Free Gift is on sale at £275.
