For nearly 20 years, Fleetway and later its successor IPC was the world's biggest comic-book publisher, and its line of digest-sized Picture Libraries was the jewel in their crown. The publisher’s most popular and longest lasting series were War, Battle, Air Ace, and War at Sea, which ran for a combined total of more than 45,000 issues. Fleetway scoured the world for the finest creators and employed top artists from Spain, Italy, and South America as well as the cream of British talent. Painters such as Graham Coton, Giorgio DeGaspari, Allesandro Biffignandi, and Jordi Penalva created a succession of stunning front covers that have thrilled generations of readers. This stunning collection gathers together 500 of the finest War, Battle, Air Ace, and War at Sea covers, each digitally remastered from the original archived artwork and presented in a lavish oversized format.
