My look at the 'Atomeka' comics brand reaches A1 (series 2) - 4 issues, cover artists include Glenn Fabry and the line up of interior artists used it pretty good too. Must track these down.

Always great to be reminder of what Viz started as to what it became. Such a success story.

Who was 'Pryde of the RAF'? A colour strip by a b+w veteran (and Robot Archie artist for many years) - Edward Kearon. This looks like it was meant for 'Eagle' - a mystery to me!

In 1987/8 Marvel UK produced a short-lived 'Inspector Gadget' comic - I've updated my covers gallery but still have a couple of gaps to fill

Had or at least read a couple of those!
I think it was the only cartoon myself and my sisters could agree to watch together in a 1980's single TV household.

That nostalgia led to a purchase of the very addictive game on the iPad years ago - at one point in 2011 I had the third highest score on the planet. 😆

on the planet! Nice. if kinda niche.

The weird thing about the Gadget comic is that it only came out every couple of months - who buys a comic that comes out that infrequently????
