*Boys’ Adventure & War Picture Libraries: While most Summer/Holiday Specials of weekly comics expanded their height & width, with Picture Libraries, it was all about the thickness! Ooer, Matron, etc.) These sturdy Holiday editions of the digest-sized Picture Libraries boasted at least three times the pages of their punier siblings, sometimes even more! We have a new selection of Battle, Suspense and War Picture Library Holiday Specials for you to choose from, but the Big Daddy of this influx is 1969’s Super Picture Special – a sort of ‘ancestor’ of several of the ancillary titles, this stonker, too big for merely one theme, offered war, suspense, science-fiction and sport in an unfeasibly engorged 448 pages! Because of its page count, the Super Picture Special is prone to ‘moulting’ pages, and few copies survive in anything like decent shape. This copy is a superior GD/VG at £30. After all, when are you going to see another?
