Re: Mandy free gift

Thanks! I saw that on eBay a while back which is why I knew it was from the 80s, but couldn't see the listing any more which is why I asked here. If anyone knows the details of that issue it would be much appreciated. Thanks again!

Mandy free gift

I'm pretty sure this was a free gift in MANDY in the 1980s, but I couldn't say which year or which issue. Does anybody know???

TV21 Soccer Cards

Hi! Does anyone know which issue of TV21 these free soccer cards came from? I'm guessing it was TV21 and TV Tornado #192 but it looks like they issued similar cards at least once more (in TV21 & Joe 90 #1).

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Bought two copies of the "Fantasy Unlimited Catalogue" which I guess was the catalogue of a comic shop in N1, London: but can't find any info on it online. Does anyone know more about the shop, or even have a picture of it?

Re: Energy Gun

Thanks Adam - I would also guess if it came from a comic it would have a little logo saying 'presented with the x' on it. Still, you never know!

Adam Eterno, do you by any chance have a link to the ebay listings you've put up? Always interested in British no. 1s!

Advertising Superman in British Comics in 1939

Following up on some earlier posts it would be great to work out which issues of which comics advertised the first British appearance of Superman in 1939. Being a bit of a nerd for this sort of thing, I compiled an index of advertisements in the Gem for the second half of 1939, and here it is. Came ...

Re: Ebay - you want how much for it???

Yes the collection of gifts is overpriced - £300-400 seems right. Beano No. 1 is cheap - it's Britain's "Action Comics #1" and this is the best copy. It could easily go stratospheric in years to come. Now if only I had £25K...

The Beano - between 1954 and 1962 (can you guess why?)
2000AD - between 1978 and 1985
Mighty World of Marvel - 1978 to the end
Viz - all of it
The Beano (up to 1954, and since 1962)
