Time for a great full colour tale now from the Spellbinders first picture story appearance in an Annual. So let us journey back to the winter of 1970 when his strip was still known as Turville's Touchstone and the pages of Lion Annual 1971 for a yarn called The Whitestoke Kidnappers. Enjoy!
Time for another treat now - we go back to the Lion Annual 1971 to bring you the very first appearance of The Spellbinder in an Annual. Back then his strip was still known as Turville's Touchstone. This text story with illustrations is called The Dark Horsemen - Enjoy!

I always loved one off special complete stories in Summer Specials and Annuals. This one in particular stood out for its hilarious title and brilliant artwork - lots of fine detail and grey wash. The final speech bubble had me doubled over with laughter. Enjoy!

Here we look back at the very first Issue of Score 'N' Roar , the 2 in 1 football comic from IPC / Fleetway which came out in the pre - decimal days of 1970 when pence was spelt with a letter " d ". It came with the customary free league ladder but also saw the debut of Nipper , who would cross many comic titles during his series arcs over the years. Enjoy.
