GIGGLE. Fleetway. 29th Apr 1967-13th Jan 1968 (38 issues, joins Buster)
Very collectible title as it joined up with Buster. Loved the strip Captain Swoop - "Half Man, Half Bird, Half Wit" - that survived into Buster. The free gift with issue #1 Giggle Balloon is rare and adds £35-£50 to the value. No Summer Specials or annuals.

Very collectible. Turn up on E Bay all the time, even #1. Not often in very high grade though. You can see my copy's a bit rubbish on the spine, a common fault.

HOTSPUR, THE (1st Series). D.C. Thomson. 1 2nd Sep 1933-1197 17th Oct 1959
Interest in this title has wained as avid collectors die off. There is still nostalgic appeal for the 40s and 50s issues and very early ones show up from time to time on E Bay. The free gift Mask with issue #1 is incredibly rare - the single know surviving example sold at auction with the comic for £330 in Dec 2004. Impossible to say how much value the mask would add now- £150-£200? A Good/Good+ copy of issue #1 with no free gift sold on E Bay in Nov 2007 for £51.43 for Mr. Phil Shrimpton, fine purveyor of such comics. The free gift with #2 was the Jumping Frog which showed up again in Dandy #2 four years later.

HOTSPUR, THE. D.C. Thomson. 1 24th Oct 1959-1110 24th Jan 1981 (joins Victor)
The companion comic to The Victor and by which it was eventually subsumed, The Hotspur was never quite held in the same affection as The Victor. Still collectible and very plentiful on E Bay. The free gift with issue #1 Jumping Frog is very scarce and woul easily add £50-£75 to the value. The free gift Miniature Bow & Arrow with #2 is also incredibly hard to find.
