On this day, 22 January 1977 … This superb, apocalyptic cover by Carlos Ezquerra heralded the 88th and very last episode of D-Day Dawson – the first story to appear in Battle Picture Weekly – and the 99th issue of the comic itself, now titled Battle and Valiant. I’ll be looking in greater depth at the 100th issue next week so this post serves just as a trailer for that, and a companion to today’s Story File which looks back at the epic that was D-Day Dawson.
