*Boys’ Adventure & War Comics: Concluding our mammoth update of the popular war weekly Battle, we have significant restocks for the years 1981 to 1983, which were previously either poorly- or non-represented in our listings. This period saw the series expand its remit from purely war – already breached by its previous absorbing of the defunct Action – to a more generalised adventure/action profile, enhanced with such new series as the not-at-all-familiar Kung Fu thriller, “Fists of Jimmy Chang”. Combat, however, remained at the forefront, with regulars ‘Johnny Red’, ‘Rat Pack’, ‘Charley’s War’, et. al., firmly holding their positions as favourites. Battle, of course, didn’t end in 1983, running for several more years, but this monstrous influx, of in excess of 1,000 new copies from 1975 to 1983, concludes here. As a final bonus, however, in addition to the weekly issues we include four of the extra-length Holiday Specials, consecutively from the years 1979 to 1982.
