LION 1980 HOLIDAY SPECIAL...
Here's a ZIP NOLAN tale and a MOWSER page from the 1980 LION Holiday Special. Betcha you'd all love to see the ROBOT ARCHIE and The SPIDER confrontation, but I'm holding off on that for the moment. After all, you need something to look forward to. Incidentally, this Lion Special only had 64 pages, which was 16 short of the 80 page 1974 Special, which itself was 16 fewer than the year before in '73. (I can't say precisely which year the page count dropped from 80 to 64 as I don't have the '75 - '79 issues.) Page numbers were going down and prices were going up, which is, I suppose, why Holiday Specials eventually faded from the scene.
