I have a copy. Bought it for the Ron Embleton cover.
Excellent stuff Steve.
His obituary in The Times described him as "responsible for some of the finest full-colour adventure series in modern British comics ... a grandmaster of his art." (Credit to Wikipedia).

Slightly off topic but ....
Is it just me or did The Beano become crass and The Dandy stay a decent read???
I'm no expert whatsoever on these two publications but bought both as a youngster and as an old git in the last decade have had a few Dandy annuals and a few Beano comics....
The Beano isn't as I remember it and I find it rather off putting these days whereas The Dandy was still excellent.
Just an opinion.

43 Buster comics from 1976 in VG/FN condition arrived this morning, my biggest haul yet!

More from the mid 1960's arriving soon....

This brings my total to 556 Buster comics between the years 1960-1981, not counting Summer Specials, annuals etc.

Thanks 'Into The Abyss'!,

I started collecting Busters from scratch exactly 5 years ago this month. It's taken me a lot longer than I expected to find the 1960's issues but I enjoy finding something of that vintage in nice condition that fills another gap in my collection.

Cross fingers Chalky that there will be a time when you will achieve your goal, have all the Buster issues needed, and you can sit back and marvel at your collection.

I came across complete years for The Topper of 1975 and 1976 which I'll put on ebay soon. All in VG to NM condition as I bought them when published. I no doubt have complete years for Beezer, Beano and Dandy 1975 and 1976, it's just a question of digging them out of storage.

Cheers! - actually my first lot of Beezer broadsheets (already had a few Topper and Buzz) - what a great read they are. :)
