Sexton Blake's New Order: The Sexton Blake Library Book 5 - Paperback, 432 pages, 8th December 2020

"The fifth thrilling collection of classic stories welcoming back the adventuring detective as brilliant as Sherlock Holmes and as daring as James Bond.

For nearly a century, Sexton Blake was the most written about character in British fiction. He starred in approximately four thousand stories by nearly two hundred authors. A cross between Sherlock Holmes and Indiana Jones, he was a publishing phenomenon, read by young and old alike.

Comprised of three SEXTON BLAKE LIBRARY stories from the "New Order", Blake enters the roaring '60s in great style, with adventures involving volcanoes, psychics and more!

THE WORLD SHAKERS by Desmond Reid (Rex Dolphin) (1960).
An insane scientist is on the loose, a villain's base is located in a dormant volcano, and Sexton Blake encounters flying saucers, thought-scrambling ray guns, and malformed aliens ... or does he?

THE BIG STEAL by Jack Trevor Story (1960)
A man is tricked into committing a crime, his wife enjoys the profits, another crime is committed, the man is caught, his wife goes on a spending spree, rings are run around various investigators, and Sexton Blake comes up with a plan ...

BRED TO KILL by Martin Thomas (Thomas Martin) (1960)
A fox-hunting protest ruffles feathers, a killer is on the loose, strange characters abound, a psychic investigator gets to work, a mad biologist experiments in a secret laboratory, a boy is missing, evolution is reversed, a creature is hunted, and an Adept fulfils a mission for the Masters."

Reading the description for the middle story, "The Big Steal", I reckon the wife's the culprit behind it all.

ooh, that's very nice, but I do love the Bolland one and I'm not buying two copies! Decisions decisions.....

David Roach has posted on Facebook that the Brian Bolland cover art is reproduced on the endpapers of the limited edition.

Oddly enough, both editions will set Stevie back roughly the same amount in Australian dollars whether I purchase the limited edition directly from Rebellion (A$95 + A$24 postage) or the regular Bolland version imported via Diamond in the US, which is retailing at US$50 , which meansthat it would be hitting the shelf  of my local South Australian comic shop at the A$100 mark.

Funny old world, innit?

April's solicitations:

I see that Chimpksy will make a return in a five part story (by Niemand and PJ Holden). Chimpksy was one off the best one-off Dredd stories the last few years (prog 2131). Looking forward to this

Yep that is indeed good news. The introduction of Chimpsky was fantastic and give the mysterious Niemand's form (and of course PJ) I've little doubt this one will deliver on that in spades.

Speaking of good covers the cover for Smash Special out in May (somehow missed this one was amongst the slew of specials this year)  is over at Comic Scene and its a SMASHER... excuse me, I'm sorry.

Yeah, that Smash cover somehow made me grab the Betelguesian by the horn (as it were) and buy the whole pack from the 2000ad shop. Sixty quid for the whole lot, with an added exclusive reprint replica of the "banned issue of Action"- couldnt say no, really.

The cover for the Tammy & Jinty Special:



Well hello there! Would that be The Cat Girls from the pages of Sally &, following the merger of the two titles, Tammy?

The 2019 Tammy & Jinty Spcial was Stevie's favourite single issue of any comic which he read last year. July can't come soon enough!
