Hi Adam,

As someone addicted to naval history novels I'd certainly like to see a Commando featuring Fighting Tom Cochrane from the Victor. Superbly drawn in the few issues I've seen. Who was the artist?
The artist in question was Argentinian Enrique Alcatena.

Re: Mystery book

Hi Stevious, There is certainly no book listed in the British Library catalogue with the title 'Rosy/Rosie Apples' so it seems unlikely that that would have been the title. There were all sorts of annuals and gift books being published in the late Victorian and Edwardian period that could have had t...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Maybe it's just me Derek. I think that if I had 2135 issues of Bunty and only 114 to acquire I would certainly be more than a little excited about the possibility of completing the run regardless of the usefulness of some of those issues to enhance my researches or not. I'm also more than a little i...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Earlier in the week I ordered 13 issues of BUNTY (eleven from 1958 : two from 1960) from 30th Century Comics. They arrived this morning, suitably bagged and protected as always. I'm very happy with them. I now only have 114 issues missing from the full run, very few of them being contiguous. I rang...

Re: Looking for help in identifying vintage comic

Merry-Thought & Scraps as a combined title only lasted for 21 issues from 7th May 1910 to 24th Sept 1910 so it would appear, assuming that the magazine in the photo was current at the time the photo was taken and not something picked up in the dentists waiting room from years before that the holiday...

Fifty years ago today..... Dudley Watkins.

It was fifty years ago this morning that Dudley Watkins was found dead at his desk by his wife Doris. He had suffered a heart attack, aged 62 and, because his work has been in print so often since his death, it hardly seems credible that he has been gone so long. He was a one off and, to me, he was,...

Re: Commando Announcement

I think Digi was referring to those Thomson girls titles that had a picture library associated with them Derek, namely Bunty, Judy, and Debbie. I've just been upstairs to my second bedroom, Ray, which is so full of boxes that for the time being I have no idea where my collections of DEBBIE Picture ...

I thin...

Re: Weather or not...

I love snow, in comics and real life. I've never forgotten a Baby Crockett story I read decades ago where he opens the front door and the snow is up to the top of it so he tunnels out through it. I love strips that feature snow deep enough to tunnel through. Two that spring to mind are the Desperat...

Re: Weather or not...

Looking back at that old thread and the question of which Victor strip featured those frozen landscapes that Col mentioned I think it may have been 'The Fear from Farthest Space' which was drawn, as he remembers, by Alan Philpott.

Weather or not...

I can't recall the last time I posted a new topic on comics uk or even if I am just resurrecting an old one under a different guise but as it's raining outside it's got me thinking about how much I have been fascinated over the years by comic strips featuring inclement weather, rain, snow, wind etc....

Not exactly how I would describe it !!

As 'nicks' go that takes some beating! I would hate to see what a 'bad copy' looked like in his opinion.
