JOHN STEED & EMMA PEEL - THE AVENGERS...
The AVENGERS images copyright ABC TELEVISION Ltd
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.
A pal gave me 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.
