202: Terror Behind the Bamboo Curtain

Matthew Ellis joins me in a somewhat noisy London box room to discuss an obscure comic from the first 12 issues of Battle Picture Weekly. We get to talk about early plot reveals, the differences between boys' and girls' comics from the 1970s, handling problematic racial stereotypes, and other difficulties with collecting comics from this period. Note: I did what I could with the background noise on this episode but there are a lot of sirens in London!
