*TV & Film Related Comics: From issue #199 to #224 (1966-1967), the girls’ weekly comic Diana featured a sumptuous full-colour comic strip of the adventures of the Avengers, John Steed, and Emma Peel, as they thwarted international evil in high style. Illustrated by Emilio Frejo, assisted by Juan Gonzalez Alacrejo, these adventures, while necessarily compressed, carried (unlike the more sanitised versions in TV Comic and elsewhere) the feel of the show, with high-stakes scenarios and actual fatalities – particularly in the final story arc, wherein our heroes are pitted against the Secret Six, a cartel of criminal masterminds, and have to battle their way to freedom. For many years, these issues have been the most highly-sought after in Diana’s entire run, but now, a complete collection of all eight Avengers stories from Diana has been issued by Big Finish Studios and DC Thomson, which, while smaller than the original tabloid pages, is nevertheless a fine-looking paperback, and a very handy addition to any fan’s shelf. Killer Frocks! Mad Norsemen! Deadly Toys! Enraged Animals! Mad Hatters! Black Heart and the Seven Dwarfs! All this and more can be yours, in this brand-new compilation for £13.
