King Tutt was a comic strip written by Geoff Watson who sadly passed away on 24 September 2015. In the UK, only six books were published by Ravette Books. The same six books were also published in Germany, along with a further four titles which I would dearly love to see published by Ravette to complete the UK series.

If anyone has images of editions produced in any other countries (or better yet books to swap to me), please email me.

UPDATE : Acquired a landscape book published in South Africa prior to any of the German or UK editions ! (see below)

Many thanks to
Dr Marcus Schweizer for translation of some of the titles.
