The Whole Story - The Six Million Dollar Man - Stories 3 and 4...

Here are the second two stories in our SMDM series, you might note a small mistake in story 4, when it mentions Steve's 'incredible bionic hearing', not sure what is meant by this, because of course Jaime (The Bionic Woman) had the bionic hearing..??...anyway enjoy.  Also, 1979 is now live on the checklist site, you can get all available strip only issues and the full version of No.51....go here.

1973 No.32, 1981 No.37 and bonus 1977 No.38 (full issues)...

Here we are with the last old look Look-in, which is No.37 from 1981, the logo changed and although it wasn't the last ever painted cover, the mainstay for the new look was photographs, really sad but Look-in had to move on like everything else and get a new modern Look.  I stuck with it until about 84, I was 21 when I stopped reading it, I just didn't see my age as a good enough reason to stop..!!  We will continue on with the new look mag although I have to say from 1984 issues get sparser, I do buy all the time and so we will get there hopefully, If anyone out there has 80's Look-in's they could scan they would be very gratefully received.

To go with that we Have No.32 from 1973, with additions to your Follyfoot files courtesy of Dan and from Luke there is another of his - No.38 from 1977, again with thanks...by the way the first new look Look-in (1981 - No.38) is available already on the 1981 checklist page and I have resized this to 1500, busy week...phew..!!...
