      • I actually tried it a few months ago and it didn’t work. Tried again a few days ago and still no luck which was why I thought it was worth contacting you. Tried again today -and naturally it worked just fine!

        Just goes to show… something I guess.

        Anyway, sorry to have wasted your time.

      Hi Anonymous – I am most interested in 247 Vital Mission – A B-25 aircraft story if I recall correctly. A side note: I remember this comic well, it was confiscated by my class teacher and it was kept in his drawer for a period of six months – it was returned to me at the end of the school year.

    Guys, you are Great! Thanks a lot for all your efforts: this indeed is a worth series with some superb authors.
    At this moment I’m trying to assemble in a single volume those whom I particularly like: I’ve started with Mr. Ian Kennedy and I’ve found many of his works are already available but quite a few are still missing and I hope you can trace them. Here is the list (* means a reprint and > means we haven’t got it yet):

    > 464 * 144
    478 * 158
    > 486
    > 532 * 197

    I still have to double check with the Battle and the War Libraries as I suspect they made a few reprints in those too, so possibly some of these issues can be traced in those series as well and maybe we already got them.
    I hope it may be a point of interest to know about these authors’ works. I’m planning to make lists for some of the other Artists I like, such as Solano Lopez, Hugo Pratt, Jorge Moliterni…
    Cheers

    That was fast Mr Tweedy! Thanks a lot for these last additions: we have two more issues from Mr. Kennedy and one from Solano Lopez…
    I’m thinking to write these lists under each author to have a useful reference but I do not see all the names I would like to, such as Moliterni, Pratt, D’Antonio, Breccia…
    What do you say boutje? Would these information fit your project or this is just mine OCD overwhelming my judgement? 😉

      • Sharman says:

        I’ve read Holland’s Fleetway Index Vol.1 and aside from the fact that there are some titles with the ‘Unknown’ author from the beginning, the problem is to cross reference the later issues that were labelled just as ‘(reprints Series XXX)’: Fleetway inserted a lot of reprints without following any order and in the book these are just identified by their number and you have to seek it to find out more details. To complicate the things further the 2103 issues in the War series not only include reprints from the other three series not in a particular order, but many later numbers are reprints from the same War original series.
        The few reprints I was able to find here in digital form are of a lower quality hence it would be best to find the originals’.
        So to say that I’m not 100% sure I did not miss some of the issues from my favorite Authors, and anyway I’m planning to have a few more lists as soon as I recognize some other Authors I like.
        As before * means a reprint and > means we haven’t got it yet:

      All issues that are posted in comments are part of the regular updates and are part of the pages for those titles, so all issues in the comments at this page are in the downloadpacks so there is nothing missing.
