Abbott & Costello - UK Comics Archive Compilation



Abbott and Costello were an American comedy duo composed of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, whose work on radio and in film and television made them the most popular comedy team
 of the 1940s and early 1950s.
Their patter routine “Who’s on First?” is one of the best-known comedy routines of all time, and set the framework for many of their best-known comedy bits.


Norman Ward contributed to the comics of the Amalgamated Press (AP) for twenty five years, mainly for Film Fun. He was an ex-Telegraph Boy who later emmigrated to Australia, returning in 1932. His first published work was in George Newnes’ Tit-Bits and his first regular weekly spot was for Detective Weekly (AP) in 1937 drawing cartoons about prisons and prisoners.
Other titles quickly followed. In 1940 he began to draw for Film Fun. After the war (in which he served in the Royal Artillery) he returned to Film Fun to which he continued to contribute for some years. His comic depictions of
 Lou Abbott and Bud Costello are considered to be amongst his best work.

NOTE: Ward primarily drew Abbott & Costello but AP enforced a certain style that could be adapted by other artists if required.

Tarzan - Russ Manning Complete Daily Strips [Complete Collection]





In 1967 he was chosen by Robert Hodes of ERB. Inc‘ to do thedaily and
SundayTarzan strips for United Feature Syndicate.
The strips had drifted far from the Burroughs vision and Russ was
committed to bring the strip much closer to the style of the
original! Tarzan novels.
 Each week he wrote and illustrated -- with the assistance of artist Bill Stout -- the large colour Sunday page and six daily strips. His illustration and writing abilities brought a
quality and accuracy to the strip that had not been seen since
the days of Foster and Hogarth in the '305 and '405,

Wanted, The World's Most Dangerous Villains #01 - #09 (1972 - 1973) DC Comics [ Complete Series]


Popular in the 1970's, DC began several reprint titles, this bi-monthly title focused
 on Golden Age/ Silver Age villains of the DC Universe. With a few exceptions, most villains highlighted were lesser known or minor leaguers. 
The series lasted nine issues and was published from July/Aug. 1972- Aug/Sept. 1973.


Wanted (also known as Wanted, the World's Most Dangerous Villains), was
 a short-lived ongoing comic book series that reprinted classic DC Comics. An anthology title, the series spotlighted not so much the heroes of the DCU, but rather their most notorious adversaries. Some of the villains featured include Signalman, the Puppet Master, Clock King, the Joker, the Mist, Captain Cold and Mr. Who. The title was discontinued after only nine issues.
