Re: Smash Hits

I bought these until around '81 and lost interest when punk stopped being covered. I used to cut a lot of stuff out of them, a really great mag. I also bought Noise for awhiel, that was cool too. After that it was Sounds only.

Re: Damaged Annuals

I will only buy nm annuals. There are so many of most of them that it's worth the wait for a top copy.

I can think of no transaction more financial or consenting than that of the customer and comic dealer.

Katy 1-10 Misty & Tammy reprints Vulcan For Girls?

I've just picked up some Katy comics and was surprised to find the contents to be in colour. They are also very much in the same format as Vulcan; colour rpts of b/w strips, comic size and paper quality is very similar. A very cool little series.

Re: 2000AD Free Gift conundrum

I seem to remember reading that the spinner was given away with 2000AD 1 because there just happened to be a load of them in a warehouse. Which may mean it was due for use elsewhere.

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Target comics...command a high price - look on ebay now and no. 7 is going for £30 :shock: No. 1 is going for a tenner but without the free gift at the moment. Yeah, but they're still there. They only command a high price if someone buys them. I'm struggling to find a Target comic on eBay that's so...

Re: Selling my Comic Collection

I'm not sure how it works but if you ask a question on an auction it doesn't always show at the bottom of the listing for others to see. Could be a hidden question was asked and there were a few gems in there.

Re: Selling my Comic Collection

They went for £122, bit of a crap shoot. I think people just enjoy the thrill (or huge disappointment) of getting the stuff.

Re: Comic Pet Hates

Somebody I know got a neg on ebay for selling a comic that wasn't a complete story. It should have been mentioned apparently.

Re: Comics on TV

I've had a quick look through this thread and would like to mention Tristan on George & Mildred reading X-Men at the breakfast table, possibly #98. Also a Misty appearance on a newagent shelf in Minder. Oh, yeah, Radar reading an Avengers on Mash 10 years before it was published.
