The Victor Book, for Boys, Warlord and Hotspur Annuals
I have just finished a Victor Book website dedicated to the Victor Book for Boys published between 1964 and 1994 by DC Thomson of the UK. The Victor started out as a comic for boys, mainly about various peoples exploits in the Second World War. In 1964 the first annual was published and 30 more followed.
I was an avid reader of the comic and the annual, and decided a few years ago to get a collection of the annuals - all in excellent condition. I have now suceeded and the website is for others trying to achieve the same goal. I obviously had the annuals already but having read them, dropped them and otherwise abused them they were not worth anything !
So if any of you are interested in collecting such annuals check out my site here. You might be interested to know that some of the annuals, if they are in excellent condition, can command a sales price of 50 GBP or more. Who knows what will happen in the future.
Update: January 2010 - I have amalgamated www.victorbook.info into www.collectingannuals.com. The new site includes the Victor Book for Boys, Warlord annual, and Hotspur. With more titles and information to follow.
