LITTLE STAR COVER GALLERY - PART THREE...
Well, bought 'em, so gotta use 'em. I don't really recall any covers
past #s 1-3 (and maybe one or two others), so I'm now wondering if I
bought only the first three issues (seen in part one) because of the free
gifts and then gave up on it. I had a paper round at the time and only
spotted the comic when it first came out because I was in the news-
agent's early in the mornings collecting my papers for delivery.
As LITTLE STAR was a nursery comic, it really fell outside my
interest as a 13 year-old, but the lure of a new comic with free gifts
was always hard to resist for me. I'd even bought the first and early
issues of SHOOT, SCORCHER, and SCORE - and I had absolutely
zero interest in football. Having said that, there was some nice art
in Little Star, by the likes of TOM KERR and BILL RITCHIE.
So let's take a look at another five covers that perfectly capture
the wonder and innocence of youth. If only such qualities stayed
with as as we grow up, the world would be a much better place.
