Xmas Gifts - Alf Tupper
If you're looking for a good gift idea for Christmas, I'd recommend Alf Tupper - The Tough of The Track. Drawn by Pete Sutherland, Alf appeared in various comics over the years, but this book collects his appearences from Victor where he appeared in comic strip form. There is also a foreword in there by Brendan Foster, a distance runner who has won several Olympic medals, as well as a foreword by Morris Heggie, the former editor of the Dandy, and also author of 'The Art and History of The Dandy', published earlier this year.
You can get this book from various stores such as WHSmith (which is where this copy comes from), or online at the D C Thomson store or amazon.co.uk. In the stores it costs £12.99, but if you shop around online you may find it cheaper.
