JOHN STEED & EMMA PEEL - THE AVENGERS...

The AVENGERS was big in America, so a comicbook based on the show was a racing cert. It couldn't be called 'The Avengers' though, as MARVEL had that title sewn up. So when GOLD KEY eventually released the mag in 1968 (comprised of reprints from the strip in Britain's TV COMIC) it was simply named JOHN STEED EMMA PEEL - without even an ampersand.
I acquired this comic recently, but unfortunately there's a few pages missing from the end of the first story. If you have this comic and can supply me with scans of the absent pages, it'd be very much appreciated. Let me know in the comments section, along with any reminiscences you have of this particular mag.
Enjoy the pictorial reminders laid out before you, Criv-ite chums, and savour some comic strip magic of the swinging '60s.
