Re: What comics did you buy today?

Whizzing to me courtesy of eBay is a fat wad of 1967/1968 Busters for a fiver. From the pictures it looks as though there could be one of the Leo Baxendale fill in covers within the pile. That caught me by surprise when I first saw one with his anarchic style deployed on Buster himself but of course...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

The new Sexton Blake special from Rebellion has turned out to be a real treat. I was expecting a couple of reprint strips bunged in with a page or two of new art but the reality is far better. There’s a lot of good editorial within its pages accompanied by a good dollop of comic history. Consequentl...

Re: Daleks collection

I got mine online from Panini. There’s no need for daft eBay prices as I understand from what I’ve read on Twitter that there are more on the way to the shops. By the way, it’s a quality product.

Re: Happy 100th Birthday, Rupert Bear

Steve - I got those inserts, today included. Another nostalgia fest for me as I recall that there were a couple of occasions back in the Seventies when they did that in the broadsheet sized Express - full colour too which was special in those days.

Happy 100th Birthday, Rupert Bear

Today’s the day! Rupert is 100.

One of my earliest memories is aged 3 on Christmas Day 1968, receiving my first Rupert annual. I guess it counts as my first ever comic related item and I still have it. How much has followed since!

Many happy returns!

Re: Flood story!

A bit more digging and I reckon it’s The Great Flood of London from The Beano, starting in 1960.

Re: Flood story!

Hmmm - this ones come up before and the answer will be deep in the forum archive. I can’t specifically remember The details in the thread but I have a glimmer of a recollection that it was in The Beezer. Can anyone add to this ?

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I’ve picked up the pre-publication test print of Wham 1. Packed full with strips but also with a fair few blank pages where the adverts should be. This has been discussed on the forum before but I would not be surprised if copies were printed and used by the advertising team as samples of the intend...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

As an infant my first comic collection, consisting only of Pippin and Playland, was thrown away by my mother. I’ve always meant to go back and reacquire those very early 1970s issues. Now the first few dozen are due to roll in, so I can relive the delights of The Moonbeans, The Herbs and Mary Mungo ...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

At last after a fair bit of searching I’ve acquired the late sixties British versions of Zap Comix issues 0 & 1. Containing the total non licenced content of the US originals, with the bonus of issue 0 having additional British content “Help Keep Britain High.” These were two shillings, sixpence eac...
