KID'S KLASSIC KOMIC KOVERS - JET #1...
American readers may be bemused by the free gifts often given
away with British weekly comics, seeing as it's not something done
too often with U.S. mags, but it was once the custom for U.K. comics
to offer an 'inducement' for the first three issues of any new periodical.
These could take the form of a novelty item, such as squirt rings, plastic
biscuits, luminous masks, and even, on occasion, confectionery - as was
the case with JET #1. The title lasted 22 issues - probably as long as
the free 'fruit' bars, which seemed to take ages to munch through.
Honest - they were as tough as old boots!
