Are you planning a marathon read through of the whole lot in order?

Yes, that's the plan, with my son who was seven when we started this quest and will be 10 next month.
Sadly completion still seems like a long way off - those last 6 editions / episodes could take ages to find :-(

Perhaps you can list the missing issue dates? Someone here might have one or two of them.

Good idea - don't have all the dates to hand at the moment but I know I am missing episode one of 'Pursuit' which was on 2nd January 1971 - that one is fairly key to the whole thing!!

I probably have all of them. But they are in storage. I'm off tomorrow and may have a delve in my storage unit. I wouldn't sell them though as it would break up a long run.

I'd even be grateful for scans of just the story pages at this stage - and would happily pay or make a charitable donation to complete the story. I will still buy the issues when I see them for sale as well.

I've just been reminded that there's an 8 page 'Beware of the Puzzler' strip in the 1974 Whizzer and Chips Annual, so perhaps ovaltrack's mission has not quite ended yet!

Got hold of the Annual - thanks again for pointing that out.

Bad news though - we've been working through the comics with the Puzzler stories and hit on a gap in the collection which is down to my appalling record keeping - there is still one missing issue - 22 Jan 1972.

We only need the Puzzler story (2 pages) scanned if anyone can help? Thanks in advance if you can!

Hopefully sorted again now - fate threw an eBay copy of the said issue into my browser last night!
