*Power Comics: Increasingly becoming a very, very collectable title due to its variety of original material and classic American strip reprints, Smash has never been more popular. This week’s Free Gift Farrago outing features #1 and #2 with their original gifts (and #3 sadly missing the Phantom Fighter). Grimly Fiendish by Leo Baxendale and Queen Of The Seas by Ken Reid are just two of the quality strips that commenced in the debut issue, here present in a very respectable GD/VG grade along with its Free Gift (the Gun With the Big Bang) in GD. Priced at £175 (and if that sounds expensive, bear in mind that copies have changed hands on eBay in only slightly nicer shape for in excess of £500!), only minor edge tears and rusty staples prevent a higher grade; nice page quality. #2 (PR with detached covers and a long horizontal tape-repaired tear across the centre of the front cover) is a more modest £45, but also comes with its Free Gift: the Jumping Frog (in GD). A rare chance to grab copies before they go up even more!
