Hmmm. User input error, not a scanner malfunction. Still, I'm sure you can mentally reverse the phase polarity of the above images to put the issues in correct chronological order. Or just read each one right-to-left.
It's nice to see some quality craftsmanship in a transfer for a change. Thank you, Dave Gibbons!

This was a busy month for Letraset promotions; first the TV Comic Hanna-Barbera transfers, then the free Kalkitos in "Whizzer and Chips", & now four weeks of Doctor Who.
Letraset had purchased the toy companies Merit & Thomas Salter in 1978, & then Stanley Gibbons (the Stamps company) in 1979. The latter purchase turned out horribly wrong for Letraset, so perhaps they were aware that they were over-extended & were pushing harder in other areas — such as free gifts in comics!
