Talking of Whizzer & Chips, the first merge issue with Scouse Mouse is on its way to me.

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I’m a Marvel UK diehard fan but even I’d never heard of their 1982 comic Not the World Cup which includes an early Alan Moore story. Now purchased and on its way.

Re: What comics did you buy today?

The final ever Whizzer and Chips (sob!). The passing of a comic giant - and the last appearance of Shiner (double sob !) At least he managed to get through it unscathed.

Re: Our Colin (aka colcool007)

I only heard yesterday morning how ill he was - and reading here now that he passed away later in the day. So incredibly sad and my deepest sympathies to his family.

Re: Boys Adventure Comic blog

Some great days out there but I missed them all sadly. At least I got to the 2000AD 40th Anniversary con which was truly Zarjaz.

Re: Original Red Dwarf Smegazine Art

Ron Smith on Red Dwarf! I never knew.

I love Ron’s work and he’s right up there with Brian Bolland and Carlos Ezquerra in my 2000AD Hall of Fame, yet never seems to get the same recognition.

Re: Valiant in 1964

Sometimes a merger really makes a title far, far better. Whizzer & Chips with the other Knockout being one that brought in some great long standing strips.

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I always go for the website exclusive hardback covers but they are a bit of a mixed bunch compared to the mainstream ones.

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I’m stacking up on hardbacks for my new comic library. Just picked up a book on Frank Bellamy’s Doctor Who work in Radio Times. Also the newly published Steel Claw collection.
