The GCD link for that UK annual lists the issues of 77SSS that are used to compile it, one of the issues is 1066.

 

Anyway, I'll see what pops up on t'internet re- 9d's and bob copies(thumbsu

Gotcha. Not a new book for the record then, but interesting nonetheless.

I believe this is #225 which doesn't appear to be on the list.

Of course I have! It's another of those deliberate errors to keep you on your toes :whistle:

Good spot Gnash - I had this saved in the files too:

The ebay listing from which it comes says "UK Price ticket has been stapled to the cover"

You can see the 6d is an addition, and not part of the printed cover. L Miller would do this - place a 6d stamp on a 9d priced comic. Quite a cool way to change the price isn't it - hand written changes or stamps are the normal (lazy?) method! :)

There are so many Dell comics from show I never even heard of‼️?

Bugs' Beach Party is a 'new' one, and brings us up to 7 confirmed Dell Pence Giants:

The indicia dates are 1960 and 1961 respectively. As I collect them - I have 3 now - I will be recording the actual indicia dates, not the dates I've taken from the GCD etc. So 'Aug 61' changes to 1961 as I have them confirmed.

Here are big scans:

As I mentioned in an earlier post, documenting Dells is difficult as many issues are multi-month dated copies, e.g. they have cover and / or indicia dates like 'July-September' 1961. Dell seem to be the only publisher who did this - everyone else is monthly (albeit when I come to document the Australian Marvel price variants, the bi-monthly books will be a pain).

So I decided the best way (for now) to catalogue them is to record them on my spreadsheet showing the first of the noted months. So 'Have Gun Will Travel' #10 is recorded as July, as the indicia states July-September:

736701898_lastdell.PNG.f56bbe924b2849084421866c0355b69a.PNG

 

The cover of that book says just 'September' however, so I'm not 100% satisfied and may have to start showing them on the sheet across all the months they relate to. A task for another day.

Meanwhile, I haven't found a book cover / indicia dated later than 'July-September', so the spreadsheet shows July as being the final month a book appears.

Four Color # 1236 (King of Kings) is the last pence priced FC I have found and that, annoyingly, has no month on the cover or indicia - it just says '1961'. GCD has the book recorded as September 1961, so that ties in with my theory that July (and by implication of the 3 month rule, September) is the last time a pence Dell appeared.

Here's my copy:

And inside:

Still, I'm not happy with how I've recorded these - it's not clear enough - so I'm definitely going to revisit and replan.

Watch this space!

I've now got a record of 189 of (if I've done my calculations right) 424 possible issues across 40 titles:

19 complete volumes x 12 = 228

+ 11 = 239
