Re: Are weekly comics doomed?

I find these continual debates I keep getting dragged into by a minority on the forum (who have resented my presence from day one) to be extremely tiresome. I'm sure most of you are all decent people, but the clique are determined to have their way, so - as they seem to be intent on driving me out o...

Re: Are weekly comics doomed?

Apart from wishing to draw members' attention to your routine Look-folks-I--am--the-victim act, the only thing worth commenting on is to point out that snakes slither, mongooses leap. I thought I might take a leaf out of your book, you see, and introduce a bit of levity into my post. How did I do? ...

Re: Are weekly comics doomed?

You cant blame the forum for the reactions elsewhere of one person who's reading your posts here. As Col said, it's an open forum. Anyone with access to the Internet can read what we post here, not just members. And those anonymous messages you've had seem to be in reaction to your posts from what ...

Re: Are weekly comics doomed?

Do you never give up? Your question to Lew Stringer is utterly pointless, unless wanting to challenge him, goad him, annoy him, is the point. And can you seriously imagine anybody writing down everything anybody says or writes, especially not your increasingly-rambling writings? In the light of the...

Re: Are weekly comics doomed?

So that gives you the right to bring it all back over here? I am not sure that by spreading the noxious fumes of trolling on your blog makes it any better. However, in case it has passed many people's notice, we are an OPEN forum and this can be read by people not logged in. So to say it's a nutter...

Re: Are weekly comics doomed?

It's a false analogy as 1p in 1973 bought you a fair whack of sweets, whereas 50p today and you are lucky to get one. You seem to forget that spending power per pound diminishes over time and it is why I could get 4 Commandos in 1975 for 20p, whereas today it would cost me £8. You are presenting a ...

Re: Are weekly comics doomed?

Anything that happens elsewhere in internet-land, we are not bothered about it on here unless someone deliberately brings that unpleasantness over. Kid, I mentioned this back on page 12 of this thread. Is there any value added to reprinting anonymous emails on what purports to be a thread about wee...

Re: Are weekly comics doomed?

Well just for the record I didn't send it, and I've no idea who did. And Phoenix has told you he's not guilty either, so you'll just have to work through a process of elimination or stick to topic. I wasn't for a second suggesting that you had, Lew. What puzzles me 'though, is how someone would kno...

Re: Are weekly comics doomed?

Strange that I'm still receiving anonymous comments on my blog concerning the topic on this forum - obviously from a member, too. I reproduce it here to demonstrate the childishness of the person concerned. Anonymous has left a new comment on your post. "A POOH IN THE CORNER OF THE HOUSE - (OR SOMET...

Re: Are weekly comics doomed?

You might like The Drunken Bakers and Hen Cabin then, or several other Viz strips that, as I said, don't always contain 'swearing and vulgarity'. My point being, of course, that although some strips may not, they sit alongside those that do. When I said I prefer periodicals that don't contain swear...

Re: Are weekly comics doomed?

Well, I'm not sure if it was ever designed to appeal to adults, but whatever it was attempting to do, it failed. We've been through that before. We could argue all day (but let's not) whether it was due to content, lack of promotion, lack of cover mounts, poor visibility in supermarkets, general in...

Re: Editing option disappeared

There should, of course, have been a question mark after 'explanation' in the third sentence of the previous comment. I would have used the edit option to correct it rather than leave a separate comment, but I can't for reasons previously referred to.

Re: Editing option disappeared

Is it really too much to expect the courtesy of a reply by the moderators to this question? Is the missing edit option a fault, an oversight or a deliberate action? Or are I and anyone else who is wondering what has happened really expected to seperately contact administers or moderators for an expl...

Re: What's the longest it's taken you to obtain a missing co

Back in 1981, I acquired Batman's World of Adventure Library #2, which I'd had as a kid in the '60s. "Must get #1" I thought. Well, back in May of this year, I finally did, making it 32 years before I achieved my aim. Last night, I finally dug out the box in my cupboard which contained #2 and reunit...
