The Competition - pt.2....BEEB...

You may remember a while ago I uploaded TV Tops, one of Look-in's competitors in the comic market.  Well here is another of them, this one was called BEEB and was the BBC's answer to Look-in.  In it's arsenal was The Tripods, a sci-fi classic of it's day and drawn by John M. Burns no less,  Grange Hill, Automan, and One by One.  Published by Polystyle, The title lasted 20 issues.
