Valiant 579 p14_edited-1.jpg
School for Spies began in the Valiant dated January 5th 1974 and ran until the issue dated May 18th (the following week saw the merger with Lion). Don't know the artist I'm afraid.

Re: Ebay - you want how much for it???

As his other issues are £1.25 then I think we can assume that's a rogue zero in the £1,025.

Re: A for Archie...Adam's Ants..etc...now for B

Predates the Buster character by more than a decade. In a similar manner to Spot the Clue with Zip Nolan, readers were encouraged to spot the solution to whatever peril Cliff found himself in that week.

Re: Retro TV

I believe the original plan was to make the film first, then the series, but the series was brought forward. I think it was simply the case that Newmar was unavailable for the film.

Re: Ron Smith rediscovered

The closest issue I've seen is the 22nd September and Boney is in Whizzer by then so if he was in Chips then it didn't last long.
