1986: THE STEEL CLAW Issue 1 (Quality Comics)

THE STEEL CLAW was another reprint title from Dez Skinn's Quality Comics but, unlike the vast majority of the line, it wasn't compiled from old 2000AD material.

Dez dug a little deeper into the IPC archives for this four-issue series, launched in late 1986, which reprinted strips from sixties title VALIANT.  Not only did this ship the strips to the United States for the first time but it also gave a new generation of British readers their first chance to see the strips.

The reprints were reworked to fit the US format and page dimensions, coloured and linked by a new framing sequence created by Garry Leach.
