Re: Buster adventure stories

Folks I have a complete absence of Buster from my collection and would love to delve into some of the adventure strips talked about. Are there any annuals or reprints that have some of these featured and that might serve as a possible taster for me?

Thanks in advance.

Re: HAPPY CHILDHOOD

Nice nostalgia! I had an idea of taking a digital camera and retracing my childhood steps from my old house to the newsagents and back again, as I read the comic on the way home......although the newsagents is now gone, the actual route is still very recognizable, 45 years later. Worth pursuing, or...

Re: Steel Claw-Stupendous library

The Steel Claw is great, I love the later series, The Return of the Claw. If you are after more collections these two have quiet a lot of Claw stories, but note the repro in the album is poor. http://thumbs3.ebaystatic.com/d/l225/m/muHo6HcTSrBU0bafNRC-UyA.jpg http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/sca...
