*Boys’ Adventure & War Comics: …had better get his skates on and place his order, because we have the most significant update of the UK’s adventure weekly Valiant that we have had for a while! From an original owner collection comprising most issues from 1962 to early 1967, this extraordinary run (minus a handful of missing or damaged numbers) significantly augments our stock of this A-list title! The issue one, alas, was too badly damaged to sell – though it is included as a ‘bonus’ with issue #2 – but highlights of this selection include the one-off debut of ‘Charlie Peace’, before his departure for a lengthy run in Buster, the simultaneous premieres of ‘Legg’s Eleven’ and ‘Mytek the Mighty’, the (separate) first appearances of ‘Jason Hyde’ and ‘Jack Justice’, and – the most significant of this update – the February 23rd, 1963 issue, which saw the merger of Valiant with the venerable Knockout, and resulted in the addition of ‘Kelly’s Eye’, ‘Battler Britton’, ‘Prof. Kraken’, ‘Sporty’ and ‘Billy Bunter’ to an already star-studded line-up! All this plus Christmas, New Year, Fireworks and Easter issues galore!
