*Boys’ Adventure & War Comics: Like its companion the Comet, the Sun weekly was smaller than the usual British comic – closer to the American format – and delighted readers for more than ten years from 1947 to 1958, before amalgamating with Lion. We have around thirty new issues from the years 1952 to 1953, commencing with #189 and ending with #220. More purely adventure oriented than Comet, Sun’s unique selling point was the extra-length Billy the Kid lead feature – five or six pages rather than the usual two or three, and almost always a ‘done in one’ story, backed up by, at various times, historical heroes like Robin Hood, Dick Turpin, Ivanhoe and the Prisoner of Zenda. These are averaging Fair – in terms of page quality alone, they are decent, with no damage to the story image area, but sadly there has been major rust at the staples, with almost total erosion in some cases. Nevertheless, affordable gap-fillers.
