18th December 2019 would have been comic artist Ken Reid’s 100th birthday, and to celebrate this special occasion, Irmantas Povilaika, publisher of the brilliant Power Pack of Ken Reid books, is offering a Christmas gift to fans who still haven’t bought the two beautifully presented collections.
Reprinting of Ken Reid’s Odhams strips, The Power Pack of Ken Reid books feature such delights as Frankie Stein, Jasper the Grasper, Queen of the Seas, Dare-a-Day Davy and The Nervs.
Volume 1 (featuring “Frankie Stein” and “Jasper the Grasper”) is being offered with a complete episode of “Frankie Stein”, cut in two halves.
Volume 2 (“Queen of the Seas” and “Dare-A Day Davy”, plus my favourite Reid strip for Oldham’s, “The Nervs”) comes with a complete episode of “Dare-A-Day Davy”, also cut in two halves. And it’s not just your regular episode, but the one with Ken’s self-portrait and his portrait of Walter Thorburn, the scriptwriter!
Those who order both books, will not only receive the four prints, but also two bonus A4 prints of blown-up “Dare-A-Day Davy” panels with the portraits of the diabolical duo – Ken Reid and Walter Thorburn.
That’s a total of six free A4 prints, but you’ll need to order soon as the number of the prints is limited, so the offer stands until Irmantas runs out of them.
Be sure to get your orders in early to avoid delays in the postal Christmas rush!
