Comic Bits -Magazine of British Comic Book History

 Each 80pp issue contains lots of art as well as a few rare to very rare photographs (something Black Tower has specialised in). That's 80pp for the (UK) price of £8.00 which is the bare minimum price it could be offered at to encourage those with an interest in the subject to purchase. 

£6.00 for a couple of months work with articles and information it might take you a year or so to find for yourself is not bad. 

If interest picks up in the future the title can be bought back to life but until then only the first two issues will remain available.

Text, comic strips and some rare photographs!
