Re: British comics reprinted in Europe

I think the first one is a Skid Solo story as that is definitely Sandy James' work who went on to draw so much of Johnny Cougar.

Re: Michael Portillo meets The Beano

Thanks for the heads up David. I have just watched it and laughed out loud when I saw that there was a tactical deployment of a bookmark to cover up a certain character on the Beano masthead.

Re: Your Favourite Time for Having Comics

Mine was Christmas mornings without fail. All of us would get an annual and the explosion of reading material in the house each year just could not be beaten.

Re: What comics do you read on a regular basis?

Still reading Commando regularly. I now find I am dipping into Rover and Wizard (both versions) on a more regular basis. Also, and I am still blaming Paw Broon for this (Only kidding Stephen :wink: You know I am thoroughly enjoying going down all those rabbit holes ) in the fact that I am now hip de...

More hardbacks! House of Hammer featuring all the comic strips from Dez Skinn’s 1970’s magazine. Plus The Dracula File from Scream. Then one softback - The Life of Charlie “Chas” Grigg - a great biography.
I have been eyeing up that biography. Is it good?

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I picked up a nice batch of randoms which included 5 of the Fleetway paperback Blackback crime stories. It also included 2 Holiday Specials of which one was a Western and the other a Space one. Not to mention Eagle Picture Library 1 and 2.

I have to say I was really disappointed that the digital Spellbound never materialized and I was hoping for an actual printed copy too. I wonder what happened to it?
And welcome back Helen aka Helsbels.

Re: DC Thomson Heritage Comics?

Fear not good reader, your friendly neighbourhood stalker... er, no I mean superfan. Definitely no stalking involved...

I have spoken to the great and the good within those walls and I have been assured that it's a tidy up of social media and that the Spellbound download will be back in the New Year.

Twins - A Discussion on the Independent Picture Library Publishers

This is a subject that I fiercely resisted getting involved in, but thanks to the persistence of Paw Broon, I got interested despite myself. Stephen has long posited that there is some connection between all the small Picture Libraries. So I have kept digging and digging and this is what I have foun...

For those fond of the D C Thomson funnies, you might like this.

I am going to be speaking to Jimmy Glen soon and I hope to arrange an interview with him. Does anyone have any questions they would like to add in?
