It’s a Two-fer Tuesday: Russian Dick Blade … and friends!

Good Show Sir Comments: My Google Russian translator tells me the top line says “J. Lord” and РИЧАРД БЛЕЙД is “Richard Blade” and the last line on each is “Hero” and “Winner”. I am assuming they are some sort of omnibus volumes. Feel free to translate.

Thanks to Alex for sending this in.

Jeff Jones: 'Check out my one-eyed lizard'Click for larger image

Tat Wood Comments: Fifty years on, the title’s still hilarious. But note how Jeff Jones has emphasised the turtle’s head and the hero’s arms while leaving it ambiguous what exactly is going on or how many limbs each party is supposed to have.
