1988: LAST ISSUE ALERT THE BEST OF EAGLE MONTHLY ISSUE 6

From October 1988: Last Issue Alert: the sixth issue of THE BEST OF EAGLE MONTHLY, reprinting the Bloodfang strip from the weekly.

The 'Not for the nervous' cover flash has been nicked from SCREAM.

Management didn't seem to have much luck with their branded EAGLE spin-offs... the creaky PICTURE LIBRARY run didn't amount to very much either... although at least BEST OF... had strips that regular readers of the weekly might recognise and remember.  And the pick-ups from SPEED, TIGER and SCREAM might even have been new to them.

The EAGLE annuals and holiday specials, much more traditional brand extensions, did a lot better... for longer.
