Re: What comics did you buy today?

Cycled the few miles to the charity shop I usually visit once a month (hard work for an old guy like me) to see if they had any comics. Searched through the four boxes of comics they had and could only find two Marvel comics of interest.They have a children's area with lots of annuals and I was happ...

Re: British Comic Swapmeet 28th September

Kudos to Bruce Scott for organising a gret day out and thanks to Steve "Action Man" MacManus", Mike Dorey, Alan Hebden and James Nicholas for being kind enough to give up of their time and let us fanboy all over him. I'm sure that there is no such thing as a 'gret day', Col, nor a verb 'to fanboy'....

Off track

Bought the 1936 Big Christmas Wonder Book for a £1 from a carboot sale at the weekend and As I flicked through the pages I became slightly puzzled.The book contains poems and stories by famous authors and has many black/white illustrations, but there was a section illustrating the coronation of Edwa...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

On Tuesday I went to Orpington High Street. A charity shop had a pile of 80s Busters for 99p each. I bought the Christmas 1983 and 1984 issues and the 1984 Buster and Monster Fun Holiday Special. I would have bought them all but thought 99p each was overpriced but, upon reflection and considering t...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Bought 2 books from today's car boot sale and wasn't sure whether I had already got the Denis Gifford book but since the dealer was only asking 50p each I bought it anyway and after checking at home I hadn't in fact got it.I like the best of Eagle book because it contains complete stories instead of...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Found some nice items at today's car boot sale, paid £1 for Tornado annual and £1 for Film Fun annual but my favourite buy was Kiddy Fun album which cost £3 .I couldn't get the dealer to lower the price but for me as a collector it was one of those must have items.

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Got one of the better Dandy Beano reprint books from today's car boot sale. DANDY BEANO Great stories from the first 50 years, well worth the pound I paid. You can't be accused of hanging about there, abacus, can you? I just checked my copy, and it only came out in 1990. I might read it when I come...
