British Newspaper Strips, Part 4 - 1968

For today, we have the final installment of comic strip selections from Smash!, a British weekly comic that reprinted--in order--the late 1960s Batman newspaper strip.

Generously sent to me by F.O.A.M. member
Phil Rushton, I like posting these (even though the strips themselves are the same as the American ones I posted back in 2007-2008) because of the additional little frills Smash! added to the strips.

In this instance, the editors of Smash! actually gave Superman and Aquaman a sort of equal co-billing with their host, as you can see in the first panel:

...too bad Aquaman didn't get to hang out and have coffee with Clark, Bruce, and Duck back in Wayne Manor!

Thanks again Phil!
