Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

I was alluding to Aurora mainly but remember you mentioning another. I know you don't have daughters but wasn't sure if the "girls" were nieces or grandchildren.

The article mentioned new Mallory Towers books by a different author featuring the younger sister of the original main character.

Re: What are you reading during the lockdown

Yes the art style was nothing like that from Trevor that we easily recognised in the seventies. Actually I asked my mate Steve to consult his Dandy Monster Index by Kashgar for the issue numbers as mine is in storage.

Re: Roy of the Rovers (DAILY STAR)

I did mention coming across a RofR strip by her in 2018 and mentioned it here. No idea where the strip is now but I have an inkling and will look later.

Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

Just noticed that Mallory Towers starts on CBBC tomorrow (Monday) at 5.30pm. It says it's amazing to think this is the first ever screen adaptation of Enid Blyton's boarding school books, especially when you consider how popular they remain today. I mention it here as Phoenix has been researching th...

Re: What are you reading during the lockdown

I think they were in issues 1452 to 1460. Trevor is still drawing comics according to his website. Now that tinypic has closed I don't know how to add images.

Re: Dick Turpin

I have a vague memory of it being in Knockout. My mate, Steve, says he thinks it started in Sun and moved to Knockout. Did Knockout absorb Sun?

Re: What are you reading during the lockdown

I'm still going through the 300 real western magazines I bought a few months back. Also I've been going onto Grand Comics Database and indexing some issues. First issues of Goofy, Donald and Mickey, Cracker and Little Star so far. Went through some Dandys yesterday and found a strip called Babes n B...

I met Ian Chisholm a couple of times in the Fleet Street office in the mid seventies and found him to be a very affable bloke.

Re: What comics DIDN'T you buy today?

No comics but I did pick up 61 free gift football cards for £2. They were free gifts with the Hornet and Hotspur. I emailed my mate Steve to ask which issues they came with. He has Derek's free gifts book but Steve informed me it doesn't cover the Hornet and New Hotspur. Luckily Steve was able to ge...

Re: Penny Dreadfuls

It's probably not important. It's just that I came across an article in one of my sixties wild west magazines about the Beadles dime novels which are probably the American version of Penny Dreadfuls but I see they are well enough covered on Wikipedia. Reading the wiki page I notice some stories are ...
