Re: Angry with Asda...grrrrr

Just to balance it up a little I got the latest Dandy from Asda yesterday. The Dandy's were shoved right at the back as always though but I moved them to the front like the champion for traditional British comics that I am. :D

Re: This weeks Dandy

I must strongly protest over this weeks Dandy. 4 pages of Cuddles and Dimples and not a single panel featuring their mum. I think there should be some quota where Mum appears at least once every story... preferably in that low cut top. Also, as a bit of a gamer, I'm looking forward to Stupid Barrio ...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Issue 2 of Vworp Vworp! finally arrived a few days ago (I pre-ordered it on the 10th of August!). I got to say that it is bloody brilliant, 100+ packed pages and 2 original comic strips.

I'll be definately getting issue 3 especially with an Alan Moore interview.

The single greatest parody-villian is Lew's Man-Brick (a parody of Man-Bat, folks). Always makes me chuckle.

I'm another who's having to order it from the FB website. What happened to it going to be available on amazon also? I had a jolly good time searching for it anyways. 8)

So it's not only the Melchester fans that can belt out an entire sentence in the 0.3 seconds it takes for the ball to travel from the players boot to the back of the net.

I do wish Starblazer was still on the go. I was far to young to appreciate it first time around.

Re: Capt Hurricane chew bars?

Wasn't there Beano/Dandy candy cigerettes (imagine the outcry if those were on the shelves today) in the 80's? You got them in a little cardboard box and it came with a collectable card. This is the bit were Digifiend points out we discussed Beano/Dandy candy cigs 2 years ago and the I'm a bad perso...

Re: Cool recent Dandy covers by Jamie Smart and others

That period of around No.3525 to No.3540 had some fantastic covers. Judging by the return of HH and Dan on the cover of the last 2 issues I'm hoping for more of the same.

I'm calling a Numskulls/Germs crossover for the Beano Christmas issue! Come on Beano guys, you know it makes sense.

Re: Dennis The Menace Easter Egg?

Well I've gone and answered my own query by finding these on an old ebay auction. There was also a set of Dandy's (4 of each I seem to remember).

Re: Dennis The Menace Easter Egg?

On a side note, does anyone have or remember the mini-Beano and Dandy comics you got in packets of cereal? It must've been the late 80's.

Re: Beano no. 1 on ebay now

Well, it's almost certainly fake...the coloured chap eating the melon next to the logo has his hair cut at an oddly oblique angle. Most reprints (and, I guess the original) have his head extending a touch beyond the red background... You're absolutley right. Check out the Beano No.1 here and the ni...
