My covers gallery for 1997's 'Street Sharks' comic has been expanded and I now know it ran for at least 9 issues (of which I'm just missing the cover for issue #2). As ever, any help is much appreciated.

Very interesting stuff as always Richard.
A mate of mines' Father collected all of the original Eagles and my mate collected all of the later ones!
An excellent collection,I think.
Never heard of "eureka" but as it wasn't made,that makes sense!!

I often post things that because I know about them I assume everyone else knows about them too - but this clearly isn't the case and I often get 'oh, I never knew about that' type of comments. Which to me, is great, that's what I'm after. Thanks again and keep reading the blog!

'Strips 78' - the programme. I recently heard Tim Quinn call this the best comics convention he'd ever been too - see precisely what Dez Skinn, Dave Gibbons & others helped organise back in September 1978

More original Eric Parker artwork - these appear to have been done on holiday for his own pleasure rather than as roughs for comic illustrations
