The series starts with number 3 because the first two issues were titled The Boy Explorers. Simon and Kirby did one issue which was released to the newsstands and a second issue that was a b&w comic mailed only to subscribers. Terry and the Pirates 3 has a back up S&K Boy Explorers story and also features  the origin of Dragon Lady😀

Do you mean the 2 ft. Amok Time Creature? They're not Mexican and you should have been able to get one for less then $800.

.....er, how do you insert a real photo in my little avatar thingy??? :P

Put your pic in your usual photo host and get the URL (should end in .jpg, etc.)

At the top  of the page, go to "Profile/Forum Profile", then select "Specify avatar by URL" and paste your URL in the box. Then scroll down and click "Change Profile".

A square pic will look best. Anything else will be distorted into a square.

Another newspaper strip that influenced my present day taste interest in comics was Milt Caniff's Terry and the Pirates strip:





It was not within my memory carried in the London Free Press or any of the Toronto newspapers since I moved to Toronto in 1977. At some point about 25 years though I learned that the strip was very cool. Harvey published 23 issues of a Terry and the Pirates title beginning with #3 from early 1947 to early 1951. Here are scans of the three I have:







Incidentally, the first comic shop I ever patronized was Dragon Lady on Queen Street West in Toronto. I didn't learn until about fifteen years ago that the shop was named after a character from Terry and the Pirates:







Too cool!
