Anyway, there's always another rainbow to chase. Here's my first Australian edition of a Blue Bolt. There are only four Australian issues (that are known), and they seem to be drawn from the second half of the Star Publications run. Covers by L. B. Cole and Wolverton. You can see the Australian issues 2, 3 and 4 here and #1 here.

This #4 has a very cool cover that I think must have been redrawn locally from the interior story, because it seems to be an Australian unique cover.

Here's the page the main figures came from.

Here's another interior page. The close-up dialogue panel is kind of cool.

trip down the paisley-print lined halls of time this post. The comics that set me on the path of a lifetime love of the medium were Australian Disneys. My favourites were the Barks Uncle Scrooge stories

i think pink covers are some of the best....
