The above cover is one of my favourite WALLY WOOD drawings
ever, mainly because it reminds me of four different houses. I first saw it
and read the contents) back in the '60s while we were visiting friends who
lived across the street from where we'd once lived some years before. So
not only does it conjure up memories of two houses in my old neighbour-
hood, but also the house in which I was living at the time. I also associate
it with my present abode because I bought an ALAN CLASS comic
in the '70s which bore the exact same cover illustration.
However, ignore my personal reminiscences - no doubt you have
memories of your own which spring to mind when you look at the
accompanying collection of covers which lies before you. So, go
on, indulge yourself - you have my complete permission.
