This compilation presents around 30 strips and 'Technical Data' cutaways from the 1960s and 1970s, with the original Thunderbirds and Lady Penelope artwork created by leading British comic artists including Frank Bellamy, John Cooper and Graham Bleathman.

Here's the very limited edition (500 copies) of Kidnapped, illustrated by Cam Kennedy - reduced to £20 from £50
Over on the Book Palace website it says....

Robert Louis Stevenson's spellbinding tale of adventure, murder and revenge has all the elements of a great graphic novel, so it is no surprise that Edinburgh's Unesco City of Literature Trust turned to veterans of the strip Judge Dredd to effect this translation. Tight, dramatic, atmospherically coloured panels and terse dialogue bring the action vividly to life. The handsome, slip-cased two-volume set includes both the graphic novel and a fascinating account of its creation, including original scripts and storyboards.

A two volume slip cased edition individually SIGNED and NUMBERED by Alan Grant and Cam Kennedy from a strictly limited edition of 500 copies.

Robert Louis Stevenson's Kidnapped is an epic story of adventure, friendship, murder and revenge! Adapted by world-famous comicbook veterans Alan Grant and Cam Kennedy to vividly bring to life the thrilling story of David Balfour's dramatic journey across Scotland to claim his rightful inheritance.

This two-volume slipcased set contains the titles Kidnapped and Creating the Graphic Novel and is produced as a limited print run of 500 copies.
