Nostalgia at its Best,
This review is from: King of Crooks (featuring The Spider) (Hardcover)
From a time before the multi-parted, highly coloured, graphic novel productions of today, this is a mere whiff of a part of the 1960s which time seemed to have forgotten. British comics are one of the last remaining Forgotten Lands - overshadowed by the Marvel reprints (Terrific and Fantastic - the latter on higher quality paper than anything else of its time) - and these pieces help to highlight the weekly Sense of Wonder that titles such as Lion and Valiant were able to generate, long before Century 21 and its glossy imitators came along.
I don't know what plans are for any further reprints, but it would certainly be very much appreciated if the remaining parts of The Spider's life could once again be presented to a new audience. And now, if you'll excuse me, my helicar awaits...
