Re: What comics did you buy today?

You're right their about jingoism. What I don't know is are they just a product of their time? Getting close to the outbreak of WW2, maybe this was just a reflection of the current mood of the country? As they are so difficult to find, I do not know what the early covers would look like. As per the ...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Not quite today, but certainly recent purchases. I've started to collect early annuals with dust jackets. I've fallen in love with the designs of the 'Chums Annuals', however they are proving nigh on impossible to find with surviving dust jackets. So far, I've managed to find three (1925, 1936-7, 19...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I decided to treat myself to the Dandy comic free gift, the 'Whirly Twirly' from issue #1663, 1973. After waiting many years for one to come up for sale, I decided it was a must buy for the collection!

Re: ROVER COMIC HELP NEEDED

Hello Phoenix, Thank you so much for your effort in searching through your comics. I understand your commentary, I actually called my grandfather again stating that the prizes listed was a "3D gun" but it didn't seem to ring a bell with him. Perhaps it was a letter sent into Rover but not actually p...

Re: ROVER COMIC HELP NEEDED

Hi again, I've talked to him and he doesn't recall a prize, he can just remember it being printed. I've managed to look through Comic Book Plus website and they have scans up until issue 1331 December 30th 1950.

Do you have 1951?

ROVER COMIC HELP NEEDED

Hello all, I am in need of some help from a fan of the Rover comic, in particular any Rover fan who has issues between 1948 and 1949. My grandfather recalls being featured in the readers section for a poem under the name of either: Edward Teitge or his mother Nora Dobson. He claims that he won a pri...

Re: EAGLE COMICS FOR CHINA

Thanks guys for your posts and links! Sorry it's been a while, I've been caught up with teaching so not logged into this forum in a while.

That Eagle cutaways book looks fantastic! I will have to buy a copy when I am back in the UK next month.

Have a great Christmas and New Year!

Re: Rocket Comic 1956 Full Set

There was never a problem with the original link Phoenix thus it was either your browser or you clicked on it before eBay had officially launched it at 19:10:20. Hence why no one else has had a problem.
