There's Tim Kelly, a boy who finds the Eye of Zoltec, a jewel which grants him fantastic power; Dolmann, a genius inventor with a legion of crime-fighting toys; occult troubleshooter Cursitor Doom; and victorian escaplogoist Janus Stark! Never-before-collected, boasting a stunning new cover by comics legend Brian Bolland ("Batman: The Killing Joke"), and featuring exclusive new articles exploring the history of these characters' comics, this is another amazing trip into the past!

Review Text

  • By Mr. Mungo on 21 April 2011

    Excellent reprints, in HB/dj format, of fantasy comic strips from Smash! and Valiant; two British comics of the 60s/70s. As these two titles amalgamated in the early 70s, the pairing is a good one. From Smash! we get Cursitor Doom and Janus Stark, from Valiant it's House of Dolmann and Kelly's Eye (clockwise from top left on the cover); in each case, it's the origination story of the character. My own personal favorite is Cursitor Doom, an occult investigator, drawn with macabre relish by Eric Bradbury. It would take a collector many years and a massive pile of comics to get all these stories, yet here they are, complete in one volume: spooky!

    This book reprints 1960s strips from IPC's Valiant and Smash! comics and gives a good flavour of those long-gone publications. Reproduction is as good as can be as it's taken from the comics not the original art. Stories are reprinted exactly as they appeared in the comics, as weekly episodes including titles and recap boxes. Personally I'm glad they did this instead of editing and omitting the logos but you might disagree.Eric Bradbury draws Cursitor Doom and House of Dolmann, whilst Solano Lopez illustrates Kelly's Eye and Janus Stark. (Although one of the Janus Stark episodes is by Tom Kerr, uncredited.)

    I thought the three volumes available were worth every last old penny.sic. But I am saddened that there were no more.in the states complete runs of their comics are churned out again and again. It old Blighty we cudnt give a Gnats nose bout our fantastic comic heritage.is there no publisher in todays world willing to publish runs of these old stories on demand.I wud delight to see collections of Spider, Zip Nolan,Phantom Viking , Steel Claw, Shrinker, Charlie Peace etc etc. Cmon guys waken up theres more to our era than Commando comics. Bring it on..
