Aghh! They're the ones I'm after. I have the first two, then a gap until July, then another gap later in the year, then a few smaller ones. I think I have about half of the 43 or so issues. Well done on getting those though. They seldom appear on eBay!

I'm gonna try and get them bound to see how they turn out.
Re-issue? You mean the 1982 Eagle?

You have to admit, those monochrome covers won't have been very appealing compared to the colour covers of the Thomson titles.
