John Wagner's take-no-prisoners-cop and the forerunner to Judge Dredd is collected for the very first time! Part Dirty Harry, part Judge Dredd, all badass! Police Detective Jack McBane is the toughest, meanest law enforcer in 1970's New York City. Having lost his left eye in the line of duty, McBane will stop at nothing to rid the crime-infested streets of scumbags and villains - even if it means having to occasionally break the rules! This is the first collection from Rebellion's dedicated Treasury of British Comics line, collecting lost comics from the golden age of British comics.

The book will be available in print from: book stores, Amazon, and comic book stores via Diamond

Lew, does the bookplate edition mean that the book will have a different cover than the standard or that it will just come with a print with Wagner 's signature?

Lew Stringer said...

A bookplate is usually an additional print, either glued in or placed inside the book, so I presume that'll be the case here.

ONE-EYED JACK was also the first recycled strip to be reprinted in the new EAGLE. It started in the photo-strip era and continued into the strips-and-newsprint period. The first sign (although reprints may have always been part of the business plan) that EAGLE was having to make cuts to makes the sums add up.

Yes, Eagle was an expensive comic to produce when it used photo strips. Hiring actors/models, photographers, etc. I'm sure a lot of readers enjoyed those photo strips but I felt that method didn't really work for a dynamic action comic.
