*Humour Comics: Two rare and unusual Free Gift issues of the long-running humour weekly, each with its original Free Gift. From 1970, W&C’s second year of publication, the 21st February issue came with a ‘Lunar Launcher’ and ‘Splashdown Capsule’ (it being still the height of the Space Race, such matters were very much in the popular consciousness). The comic is FN, with only a trace marking at the upper staple area, but beautiful white pages. The Gift, never opened, is still in its original rubber band. Half a decade later, in 1975, the March 8th issue featured a ‘Superjet Joke Camera’ (a water-squirting joke novelty). This being bulkier than most gifts, and originally stored inside the comic, its long-term presence has caused light creasing in the comic itself, which, though sound, is only VG; the gift itself, however, in the original envelope, is VF. The 21st February 1970 comic & gift combo (FN and VF) is £45; the 8th March 1975 comic and gift combo (VG and VF) is £40.
