New Albion's Origins book

Have to say I agree with Lew I thought that the Bolland cover was excellent and was in the spirit of the originals (but updated) . I feel it would certainly make comic fans (as oppossed the the narrow UK nostalgia fanbase) pick this book up - Bolland is a major draw for a lot of fans - the strips th...

Crikey Issue 2

I have never emailed "Crikey" but i noticed that their "Home " page link was down although you can still look at feature pages etc - Not sure if its any use but I also noticed the email address below on the "contact us" subs page, so maybe theres a problem.

Crikey Issue 2

Cap if you type in Guido's full name onlyon your PC you get a few French etc sites referring to Guido Zamperoni, although not much info than you have they are of course in French but if you hit the translate button (then re translate it into proper English) theres a bit of info to be had. I can see ...

Crikey Issue 2

I thought I had heard of Guido Zamperoni as well so checked Lambiek but think I was thinking of a Warner Brothers artist (Zamboni ?) - the link is below if its any use for Guido Z.

"FWADDAPP!"

The Beano ref was only a "fantasy" in reference to the original posters comments on what he could have done in the UK - As you say he would have been unlikely to work on a UK comic (not his style really) Martin moved to Craked magazine (a poor version of MAD) after his copyright problems with MAD - ...

"FWADDAPP!"

Don Martin was a true original and a total one off - loved his work and used to pick up the Mad paperbacks like CAPTAIN KLUTZ when ever I came across them- but for me his one off pages in Mad (and to a much lesser extend in Cracked) were works of genius that were always funny - How many cartoonists ...

The Daily Page - Buster 1960

Another fantastic Daily Page (following on from the excellent WHAM and Hurricane pages) I advise all to have a read : On BUSTER there are (so far) 4 amazing strips that I have never heard of before are these UK drawn/written or European in origin - they all have a very different feel to them : The T...

20 almost-forgotten I.P.C. strips......

For me IPC produced a lot of instantly forgetable strips (in among the classics) some because the idea never caught on , they just got forgotten or some it has to be said that were just plain bad - Forgotten gems (and not so sparkly Strips I REMEMBER ARE: The Spooktacular 7: a good strip by Brian Wa...

New books on comics

The only books I am aware of apart from the usual suspects (DCT Classic Annual and the Best of Broons / Oor Wullie) are a Captain Britain (vol2) book) and what I assume is another new Commando collection the "Anzacs Wars" (I don't read war stories very often so this may be a reissue) -There is alway...

What do you like in the past ..the Dandy spanning 70 years?

Your a star Peter- Umbrella men look brilliant these strips should come back with a more modern spin on them (not an American spin though ie costumes etc)

best christmas annual

oopps have to add to my favs (ie WHAM 1966 and Beano annual any year up to 1970 ) the Beezer Book 1966 I loved that annual with the Iron Eater strip - the early Dennis annuals are fantastic but really expensive would love some of them.

best christmas annual

I agree with Colcool they were all great and for my age band (over 21, well over...) annuals were a major part of Xmas . As I have an older brother, who also loved comics we got twice the amount between us - The special ones for me were the Odhams annuals - I only got 3 Odhams annuals as a kid as my...
