Re: No more Megazine...

Yes, the BeanoMAX was absolutely awful in the last few years of it's existence. Honestly, I'm shocked it lasted so long.

Re: Ever Been Frisked By A Security Guard?

I don't get what all the mockery is about. An innocent civilian was harrassed without notice by an overzealous security guard who should have been fired. I can certainly understand why he would think someone rushing out a shop without buying anything is a shoplifter. What he should have done is just...

Simpsons Comics is more enjoyable than The Beano, Mike - and I don't even like the latest issues! :)

That's great news. I imagine the Beano will live on for a while yet!

Re: Smudge and Number 13 by Alan Ryan

For some reason I thought Danny Diddly O'Donoghue was drawn by Nik Holmes (who drew Clown Wars for the 2011 Dandy). Kind of a huge missed opportunity to bring Fiddle O'Diddle back instead. They could have even had Tom Paterson draw it, given that he drew a few strips for the digital Dandy last year....

Simpsons comics

Anyone read these? I do, but they've been a bit boring and formulaic lately. It's always a main plot about Lisa and a sub-plot about Homer or Bart and eventually they connect in the end. Then again, now that I think of it, the humour in them was never really clever (and in some cases, non-existent).

Re: Phoenix reaches 100

I think The Phoenix is just using a bit of hype for the benefit of the media, in the same way The DFC claimed to be the first new children's comic in 25 years. :roll: The irony is, that, unlike in the other situation you mentioned, none of us can think of a "proper" independent comic that launched ...

You likely wouldn't have found any copies even if you knew it was Waitrose that (supposedly) sold them! :lol:

Re: Found in Attic

Mutt and Jeff were referenced in the Simpsons episode "Helter Shelter" where Bart says the comics aren't funny, "they're gay, I get it".
