The Pocket-sized Art of Diving

Pocket Detective Library was published by Top Sellers beginning in 1971 and running for 67 issues.

Issue 10 was Island of Terror which was also reprinted as issue 67. By the time that last issue was published the price had doubled to a whopping 12p!




No disrespect to those involved but the art could probably best be described as functional. Here's how the cover scene played out in the story.







Issue 55 was called French Chance and not Frencx Cxance as the font suggests!




I'm really not sure about the diver's entry technique depicted here. There's a reason the backward roll is usually used for entering the water from a rubber dinghy.
