The size of book is real disappointment .It is very small when compared with books like Rip Kirby volumes, Agent X-9 Corrigan volumes etc.
288 pages total book cost around Rs 2500 .Definitely the costliest comics book that I have purchased so far in my life
One more thing what I liked in this series is naming of characters .Take a look at at some of character name
Wild bill hiccup
Side pocket Sam[Friend]
as far of my knowledge none of these stories came in lion / Muthu comics . A advertisement of flying freight mystery came in different story name[pazhi vangum pugaipadam]
Overall it is a must for ardent fans ofJjohnny hazard .Waiting for the day to buy volume 1 as well
Hope editor of Lion comics will change his mind one day and publish classic detective special. Really miss this wonderful unsung hero in our tamil comics .
