Once again a profound thank you to my chum Malcolm Norton who has sent me the following scans of one of the predecessors of adventure comics, a weekly entitled Chums which was published by Cassells way back through the primordial mists of time to an age when the artists who created these amazing illustrations were called Reg or Wilf or Alf or even possibly Bertie.
Such adventures were the stuff of dreams or even nightmares as some of these covers will attest.
What about that cover from August 15th 1906???
