The final Classics from the Comics
Here's an advance look at the cover to issue 175 of Classics from the Comics, on sale next week. Sadly this is the final issue of D.C. Thomson's long running reprint monthly and no similar title is currently planned to substitute it.
I understand that this issue actually advertises issue 176 for next month, so presumably the cancellation was a last minute decision made after issue 175 had shipped to the printers.
News of the comic ending was announced here last month following an e-mail announcement from the editor Garry Fraser. My thanks to Garry for sending me the cover previews over the past few months and for producing a fine comic. I'm sure you'll all join me in wishing him well for the future.
Classics from the Comics No.175 will be on sale on October 13th, priced £2.
