Is there any chance of the Enid Blyton's Adventure magazines being reprinted ?
Scores of popular comic publishers bring out their series ,new and vintage in colected editions .
It would be a dream come true to see the 17 stories in one nice Omnibus edition on deluxe paper .

Any hope of it being possible ? Can the publishers be contacted and requested ? Its very much difficult I agree...but if there is popular demand can there be a chance of it happening ..?

Anita Bensoussane wrote:The unnumbered edition is still called Enid Blyton's Adventure Magazine and has exactly the same format as all the others. It is illustrated by Barrie Mitchell, who also did the illustrations for number 5 (Five Get Into a Fix). Six different artists were used over the course of the series.

Ta. I'll have to keep an eye out for it. Shame that having managed to do 17 they didn't (presumably) have enough of a readership to adapt the remaining 4....

hearts mad delight,
Sing on, sing on, and when the sun is gone
I'll warm me with your echoes
