TRUE LIFE LIBRARY HOLIDAY SPECIAL

Publishers: IPC
Dates: 1 May 1970-14 1983

Very tough to find with their limited print runs. Anyone out there got a complete set? If so I will be the first to stand you a drink at the bar.

I don't recall seeing these in the newsagents back in the day but then again I was more interested in American super-heroes and war comics so wasn't actively looking for them. The fact I don't ever recall seeing a True Life Library comic in my local newsagets at the time - and I was there practically every day as a child in the late 60s/early 70s- tells me that this title wasn't widely available.

#1 is very rare - I have never actually seen a copy in my hands so the value is what someone is prepared to pay for it! It is thought that there were ony 14 issues published once a year and again actual values are hard to determine without sales data. Condition is all and picture libraries in general suffer from spine creasing with the repeated opening and closing - I remember folding back covers on my war comic picture libaries so that reading them was easier. Oh for a time machne to go back and say to my young self not to do that!

As a general guide value, copies in average VG condition would be in the few pounds, in exceptional high grade condition in the tens of pounds.
