Mostly reprints from Air Ace, Battle and War Picture Libraries. The early issues are more collectible featuring Robot Archie, Captain Condor and Paddy Payne. Comic Book Postal Auctions sold a complete 136 issue run in 11 bound volumes for 1,490 in November 2009.

These are increasingly sought after as they just don't turn up for sale that often. At least the early ones that reprints Lion comic material such as Robot Archie and Paddy Payne. Most sought after are the Captain Condor issues #6 and #9. A G/VG #9 on eBay UK fetched 27.44 recently.
