VALIANT - THE FIRST ISSUE...
VALIANT #1, cover-dated October 6th, 1962, was an anthology title published by FLEETWAY PUBLICATIONS which managed an impressive 14 year run before being merged into BATTLE PICTURE WEEKLY in 1976. In its time, it had con-sumed quite a few comics itself, including KNOCKOUT, SMASH!, TV21, and LION.
Some of the famous strips featured in its pages over the years were CAPTAIN HURRICANE, The STEEL CLAW, KELLY'S EYE, MYTEK The MIGHTY, The HOUSE Of DOLMANN, The CROWS, The NUTTS, and BILLY BUNTER.
Here, for your reading pleasure, are just a few of the strips from the very first issue. Keep your eyes peeled for the final issue, coming up in a future post.
