Brave Starr (4)

This is TV Special #2 - but is in fact absolutely nothing special about it at all as the entire contents are a reprint of "Special #2"!
On the other hand we have a front over with a signature - bottom left near the cloud of dust, looks like Tim Perkins to me.

Some original content! Courtesy of  GMR
1st story - Old scores
2ns story - Double dealing

Brave Starr (3)

This is the 3rd issue I'm covering here but somehow it has become "TV special" rather than just "Special". A definite up-turn in quality in this issue.
Front cover
Rear cover
A rather raunchy crystal lady from the 2nd "strip"
Contents are as follows:
1st story - A chilling lesson
2nd story - The ghost town!
3rd story - A miner problem

Back cover
 Double dealing, first page

Brave Starr (1)

I used to like the Brave Starr TV show back in the day so was delighted when I discovered a while ago that there was (unbeknownst to me at the time) a tie-in comic series. So, I thought I'd share some images from each of these comics so you know what you could be collecting...

Brave Starr - special #1
Front cover
Back cover
A page from the 'choose your own adventure' section
Contents are as follows:
1st story - Crumblin' canyon
2nd story - the water wagon raids
A day in the life of New Texas - a 'choose your own adventure' style adventure
3rd story - the Wagner experiment
