British Newspaper Strips, Part 2 - 1968

A while back, I posted selections from Smash!, a British weekly comic that reprinted--in order--the late 1960s Batman newspaper strip.

They were generously sent to me by F.O.A.M. member
Phil Rushton, and even though they were reprinting the same strips I had run over many consecutive weekends (from an American newspaper) I liked running these too, because the Smash! editors added little bits here and there which I thought were charming, and highlighted how differently some of this material appeared in other countries.

So here's another set of strips, and right at the top, guest stars Superman and Aquaman get a nice big mention:

...I love this stuff, even though I've already seen it.

More to come, and thanks again Phil!
