The Best of The Victor is coming!
Here's something I bet most of us hadn't anticipated. This October, Prion Books are publishing The Best of The Victor, a 176 page hardback dedicated to the classic D.C. Thomson adventure weekly. The book is edited by ex-Dandy editor Morris Heggie and if it's anything like last year's book on Bunty that Morris compiled hopefully it will cover the history of Victor by looking at various strips throughout its run.
More news as I receive it, but for now you can pre-order the book from Amazon for £11.89. (Otherwise the R.R.P. is £16.99)
Any guesses as to what the "explosive free gift inside" might be? It'd have to be something flat for shops to stock it on the bookshelves so my guess is it's one of those carboard/brown paper "thunder bangs". Time will tell...
Also on the schedule is The Best of Action from Titan Books. Again, more info soon...
