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.

Re: What did you get for Christmas?

Doug, I really must encourage you to start a thread listing out not only your Top 10 hard to finds now secured but also what Holy Grail and others still remain illusive. It would be a fascinating read.

Re: Bully Beef & Chips

Hi Yekal - What was your Uncle’s name as I’m sure we’d all like to honour him.

Re: Beano expansion

No harm in thinking big! The subtle remoulding of Dennis from Menace to Boisterous Adventurer in recent years has now given him clear space away from Horrid Henry who successfully pinched that crown last decade. At that time I found Dennis to be totally eclipsed but the cartoons have fleshed him out...

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.
