Mounties in the Comics: Dick Daring (UK) 1958
Thriller Picture Library was published under Leonard Matthews at Fleetway Publications in London. One Dick Daring cartoonist was Italian Sergio Tarquinio. The Fleetway Libraries were pocket-size with b&w interior pages. My good friend Steve Holland has identified the cover artists seen here >
"Artists were Jordi Penalva (300), Stefan Barany (312), and Nino Caroselli (319). There's a book coming out in October called "The Art of War" by David Roach which includes many, many examples of Penalva and Caroselli cover art for the war picture libraries also published by Fleetway."
