An excellent old school fanzine, much missed today from stalwart of the scene Alan Clark the well known British Comics historian. The lead feature is Sexton Blake in Pictures by the always readable David Ashford which gives a wonderful overview of the Sexton Blake comic strips that started in the very first issue of Knock-Out in 1939.

Other features include an appreciation of the art of Paddy Brennan by Ray Moore (possibly best known for his work on The Shipwrecked Circus in The Beano. Terry Bave gives an amusing account of his life as a big-foot artist in UK comics and there is an obituary of the great Ken Reid and the important but lesser known female writer for Amalgamated Press Gertrude Mary Bryant. If you remember zines from before blogs on the net you'll want this. BW with colour cover.
