Dandy,
I think you may be right. I did see a copy for sale at a memorabilia show. The artwork wasn't brilliant I have to say. It was on sale for 80! Confused I didn't buy it. Rich.

In The Avengers Files (A. Pixley) he has listed a publication called The Avengers by Mick Anglo (1966). I've never heard of this one. Does anyone have it and what do you think?


It sounds like this one..

Spotted this on eBay. Seems to be a rejected cover from a 1966 or 1967 Avengers Annual.



I can see why they rejected it; the ugly pic of Emma and poorly executed 'Avengers' logo.

Still of historical interest nonetheless.

I have one of these. It was indeed a rejected annual cover, and the artist may a limited number of reproductions. Steed's not too bad. Emma looks more like Cathy--actually, I've sort of started pretending it's supposed to be Cathy when I look at it. Laughing

Fascinating. An interesting 'what if' but not the best executed Avengers art we're ever likely to see. I'm with Timeless. That's Cathy, not Emma!

Her hair even looks closer to blonde than auburn to me. Perhaps the artist was an ardent Cathy fan and thought she ought to be on the cover? Laughing

Just bought a French Avengers book off ebay. Called Chapeau melon et bottes du cuir by Didier Liardet (not the one that was reissued as Avengers Companion), published in 1998. Can't read it of course, but there's 160 photos, a lot of the usual ones, but quite a few rare ones. Has anyone got the later edition of this which had more pages and 150 extra photos. If you have, are there any rare photos among the extra ones Question Thanks Rich.

I'm working my way through all the Avengers novelisations still. I actually liked The Floating Game - I felt it had quite a decent Avengers feel despite the author saying he'd not watched the show. Too many Targets actually annoyed me a little bit with silly, factual mistakes. For instance, Anthropology has NOTHING to do with the study of apes! Deadline was well written but was more like a Gale era episode than a Peel one.

Hi Friends,

I'm planning my first trip to the UK this July! I'll be around London for about 5 days, then Cambridge, then over to Portmeirion. Would love recommendations about places to go hunting for vintage Avengers, Danger Man, Saint, 007, etc books. Where should I look? I'll also put the word out about seeing Avengers locations. I missed the 50th, but at least I'll get there for MY 50th Smile

Thanks!

the best way to see Avengerland is to come a week earlier and attend Deadmans treasure hunt the last week of June.

Jason

I've sent you an email with contact details for Chris Bentley, this includes when this year's Dead Man's Treasure hunt event will take place and where.

Hope to see you there.

Rodney Marshall has a series of books that has reviews of each Emma Peel and Tara King episode. In December a themed book comes out which will include elements of the music.

I don't a book that is focused on the music, but here is a list with all (at least I hope so) available books about the Avengers
Book list.
It's a pdf file.
