Re: So what comic related items did you get for Xmas then?

I had the Best of Battle and the Dandy/Beano Winter Games books. I knew I was getting them as I had to buy them myself and pass them on to relatives to "give" to me.

Re: Changes in store for Crikey! magazine

I`ve only just regained my interest in comics after 20 years or so and read about Crikey! while surfing comic related websites. I had to go to Nostalgia and Comics in Birmingham to find issue 10 and was surprised to find they had no back issues. I was even more surprised to learn that Marvel, DC etc...
