Re: Lockdown in comics

Yes I've also missed getting out and about and when lockdowns finished I will be ready to start spending. Staying in reminds me of that old joke. Dr: " you will have to stay in an isolation room and be fed pancakes" Patient: " why pancakes?" Dr: "the're the only things we can slide under the door" I...

I liked the look of the book and would have preferred to pay 2 or 3 pounds but what the heck. https://i.imgur.com/bZLmcju.jpg I think they must have had a stricter ap...

Re: Ĺucky buy

No joke, me & my brother collected hundreds of comics & annuals in our time. It got to the point where we were running out of space, so we had to sell them all, well the annuals at least. We then realised it was more sensible to collect mainly comics as they were easier to store. Yes storage is a p...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

In Forbidden Planet they had all the Free Comic Book Day (Which was cancelled in May) comics on the shelves. In our shop there is usually a limit of two free comics per person, therefore I asked at the counter how many I could have and to my surprise they said I could have as many titles as I wanted...
