That would depend on the condition as anything good and above can fetch that sort of price per issue.

I picked up 28 Hotspurs and 25 Victors from the Shelter Shop in Stockbridge. They still have a pile of Scorchers for anyone that is interested.

Re: Artist identification - Boys' World Annual 1966

You can say thank you to Steve Holland later. He's identified the artist as Juan Gonzalez Alacreu. I knew it was an artist that had worked on Commando, but I had leaned more towards Cortes.

Ah well, every day is a school day.

Get it. It's lush. I keep going back to mine to enjoy the unsullied art as they have reproduced some of the art without any captions or headers.
