*Boys’ Adventure & War Comics: The third of Fleetway/IPC’s ‘Big Cat’ papers (after Lion and Tiger), Jag launched in 1968 at an astonishing tabloid size, reminding readers more of the Eagle than of its smaller-statured stablemates. Inside, the combination of plucky schoolboys in WWII “The Mouse Patrol”, heroic everyman gifted with superhuman powers (“The Indestructible Man”), and mild-mannered teacher struggling with the challenges of “Snob College” was well up to the Fleetway standard. Unfortunately, the large size deterred a lot of newsagents from displaying properly, and the lack of a ‘star’ feature didn’t lead many readers to climb aboard, and after a last-minute shrink-down to standard size, Jag was consumed by Tiger after only 48 weekly issues, rendering it a scarce and sought-after short-run series. We have the first three issues in an extraordinary state of preservation, in FN+, and issue #1 has the original free gift – “The Bobby Moore Book of the F.A.Cup” with it, in VG/FN grade. Issue #1 with free gift offered at £75, issues #2 & #3 at £25 each.
