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)

Beano Coronation Number

At this time of Royal Weddings I got to thinking - am I right to say there was no Beano coronation special issue back in May/June 1953? The Dandy seems to have done one (issue 602), and lots of other comics did. But I can't see a coronation Beano. I wonder why they missed out. Or did they?

Re: THE SLOPERIAN - NEW FANZINE.

Sounds great. And there are three issues of "Ally Sloper's Half Holiday" in Phil Comics's latest auction this Saturday to boot.

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

looks like that Beano has been rebooted back to 99p. The Eric Clapton one should go for £150-£200 I would guess, which is to be expected. Phil gets good prices, but I think that's because he's very reliable- fair grades and always a good service in my experience.
