Re: What comics did you buy today?

Super happy with my find today! Found a 1953 (or 1952? who knows) Oor Wullie book for just $20 (NZD, so about £10).

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Bought something I've been wanting for a long, long time but haven't seen up for sale - the Whizzer and Chips Winter Special. Very happy with it, and also probably the first comic I've bought in over a year - maybe even two. Can't wait for it to arrive.

Beano and Dandy Editors Query

Does anybody here know who edited the Beano between 1941 and 1946 when George Moonie was fighting in World War II, and the Dandy from 1940 - 1946 when Albert Barnes was off fighting too?

Joan and Billy in Wonderland

Came across some artwork for Joan and Billy in Wonderland, just wondering if anybody knows where it is from or who the artist is?

No, it was an auction site here in NZ. Sold for $15 in the end, so roughly £7.

Re: What comics DIDN'T you buy today?

I was bidding on an early issue of My Favourite from 1928. Unfortunately I didn't win. Am a bit gutted as I would've liked this - such an early issue of the comic too.

I won't have any either, Steve. In fact, to be truthful I'm not even sure what a Power Comic is!! Clarification gratefully received.

Re: Thoughts on collecting comics

When a company releases, for example, a new perfume, instead of advertising it on billboards and t.v. they start "whisper advertising". This is where they only tell a few people about the product, and naturally word will be passed around. This would lead to people buying it on sight because they've...

Re: Thoughts on collecting comics

Perhaps someone can help with my personal pecadillo. If i go to an ephemera fair or a flea market and see a pile of comics I will invariably buy them. However if I am at a comic fair or at 30th Century Comics where almost every comic on earth is there to be had I will usually buy nothing. When i wa...
