The Avengers - Steed and Mrs Peel, the comic strips
Just released by Big Finish (https://www.bigfinish.com/) is this collection of 8 Avengers strips sourced from Diana comic issues 199-224 (so 1966/67 vintage). These are illustrated by Emilio Frejo with assistance by Juan Gonzalez. These stories are all pretty short, a maximum of 4 episodes each (although you do get 2 pages a week). The artwork is lovely, very similar to that produced by such luminaries as Jose Ortiz and Luis Bermejo were producing.
Big Finish are to be congratulated on bringing these stories to light. And all for just £9.99. Treat yourself to an early Christmas present.
Vikings and an Atomic bomb! It can only be the Avengers.
