Collecting The Victor Book for Boys

 The 1964 Victor Book for Boys Cover Image  - Attack on St Nazaire
I have just finished a website  about collecting the Victor Book for Boys that was 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 succeeded 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 !

UPDATE: March 2018 - the site is still going and I am adding a forum to it in due course.

  2. Selling them to a collector might be difficult because of the condition.
