Final blow-out before I disappear, I only did this because I got half the pages from Dan, and I had the strip only from Daz's archive.  My head (and heart) hasn't been in it really , and I think I really need a complete break from it now.  Anyway, enjoy 1976 No.42, which includes a picture of the Bionic Eye gift....see you sometime later....
