Books Info:

The Best of the Victor Book for Boys free pdf 2011 is the fiftieth anniversary year of 'The Victor' comic, Britain's 'top boys' paper for War, Sport and Adventure'. Following 2010's successful publication of "The Best of the Victor", Prion's sequel is this rip-roaring anthology of the best stories from "The Victor Book for Boys", which was the bestselling DC Thomson annual published from 1964 to 1994. In its heyday in the 1960s "The Victor comic" sold over half a million copies a week, with "The Victor Book for Boys" selling over a quarter of a million copies a year. DC Thomson's long-serving editor Morris Heggie has selected the very best and most evocative two-colour stories and picture stories from the 31 annuals to make one crackingly good nostalgiafest that will appeal not only to Britain's millions of grown-up Victor fans but also to their children who can be introduced to these Best of British comic-strip adventure yarns for the very first time.

About Morris Heggie

Morris Heggie has worked at iconic British comics publisher DC Thomson in Dundee for nearly 40 years. He began as trainee subeditor on "The Rover" in an office next door but one to "The Victor's" editorial team, and kept a close eye on the way they paid attention to historical details. Morris has spent the latter part of his career working on "The Beano" and "The Dandy," but his in-house knowledge of "The Victor's" heritage and back-issue archive is second to none.
