I have issues 18 and 20 which I purchased from a second hand book shop in the late 80's. I don't think I have ever seen any other copies for sale in real life and have not searched for copies on ebay.

Thanks for the info. Earl, those are the highest numbered issues we've identified to date. I've picked up my 5 copies over the last year or so on ebay, so they don't come up very often and the odds of getting a whole set seem pretty remote!

Yes, interesting to know it definitely reached 20 issues. Same character line-up by issue 20, Hovercraft Patrol still running?

I've persevered with collecting this and from the first 17 issues I now have all of them apart from 1, 2 and 6 [with 13+14 being incomplete issues], so if you want to part with those issues juts let me know :)
Still no sightings of any issues higher than 20

I remember the Smurf merchandise that National did in the late 70's. Nice comic tie in there:

copy of issue 20 acquired - it's full of mentions for the comic next week but as we know there's not been a 'sighting' of issue numbers higher than 20
