Re: Looking For UK Comic Character

You could be describing 'The Shrinker' which ran in Buster comic in five series from 29/6/63 until 16/1/65 with art by Mike Western and Carlos Cruz and scripted by Tom Tully and which was then reprinted in Valiant 2/6/68 to 10/1/70.

Re: Jumping Frog

Hi Steve, this is definitely not a Dandy comic free gift. As you rightly point out these Derringer pistols we're often the easily concealed weapon of choice of the nattily dressed, dandified gamblers who frequented Mississippi River boats to whom style and the cut of their clothes meant a great deal...

Re: My Grandfather was the artist behind Cap'n Hood

Thanks Dishes for reminding me that Cap'n Hood did feature in the 1980 Sparky Book. I didn't check that far. Two of his original 1969 strips were reprinted in the book, in full colour, as they had originally appeared.

Re: Seeking Dandy 531 - 1st episode of Pobble

Hi Pobblehunter, You're right about Willie Willikin's Pobble not appearing in the Dandy for long, only in issues 531-553. There are a couple of these issues available on eBay at the moment for 13 pounds each plus postage but as the Pobble also appeared in the Dandy Annuals for 1953 and 1954 maybe it...

Re: Film Fun annual 1939 sought

Hi Richard, I do have the annual in question but no scanning facilities I'm afraid. I imagine the photo story in question must be 'The Singular Case of Professor Lewdroc' which features Film Fun editor Fred Cordwell as the eonymous professor and also his editorial assistant Phil Davis and junior sub...

Re: My Grandfather was the artist behind Cap'n Hood

Thanks for the details on your Grandad, Max. It's not too surprising that you've not come across Cap'n Hood though Col as the strip only ran for 20 weeks in Sparky even though it was printed on full colour on the back page. It ran from No 212 (8/2/69) to No 231 (21/6/69) and it never appeared in the...

Re: Beryl the Peril and the Numskulls in the Funday Times

I have a complete run of Topper so if anyone has the relevant editions of the Funday Times it could be done. As I recall the Funday Times Beryl strips were from the late 1960's and early 1970's. The Beryl strips in the Topper comic were always in full colour Steve although when reprinted in the 13 B...

Re: Dandy Character Name Change Query - 1945/46

Charlie Chutney and Old Ma Murphy both first appeared in the Dandy in late 1944. The first annual in which they appeared was the Dandy Monster Comic for 1946 in which they were given the alternative titles Conrad the Cook and Miss Prom for the one and only time.. Why the title change? Possibly becau...

Re: What are you reading during the lockdown

The Babes 'n' the Bullies were indeed in the Dandy issues as quoted by Steve 1452-1460 in Sept/Nov 1969 but Trevor had drawn those strips over five years earlier in 1963. The strip had first appeared in print in the Dandy Book for 1964..

Re: Comics on TV

The Victor comic in question was No 245 (30/10/65). This was at the time I was reading Victor regularly as a boy and it was perhaps my favourite boy's title back then. The contents of the issue in question were as follows with artists responsible appended Daredevil Douglas (cover story) - Tony Colem...

Hi Brad,
I think, giving Bash Streets' 66 year history , you'll have to be a bit more specific than that!
