I saw a Roy of the Rovers special in Smith's yesterday. Looking through it I noticed they'd printed a two page Roy strip twice in a story sequence, probably ruining the continuity. Quite a blunder. Proofreader sacked?

That's odd Steve, my copy of the Roy of the Rovers Special doesn't have ANY duplicated pages.

It was an American comic sized bookazine priced at £9.99 and had 1954-2019 on the cover. May be different publication to yours.

That sounds the same as mine - maybe you missed out on a rare, collector's item variant! :)

I might pop back tomorrow and look at them all. Can't imagine printers duplicating a strip in just one book.

I checked three copies in a different Smiths at Waterloo and they all had the same error. Pages 44 & 45 repeated on pages 48 & 49.

My apologies Steve. Checking my own copy again I can now see that pages 44 & 45 are repeated after all - but in this case on pages 52 & 49! (I was confused by the fact that the page numbers aren't repeated). Very strange - perhaps it's some kind of weird computer glitch?

Interesting to see what Rebellion say on this one.

Hopefully offer to send a replacement copy .

I was looking at the softback copies. I believe there is also a hardback version.

To be honest I was only looking at the odd numbered pages so maybe your numbering is the correct one.
