Re: Beano No.4000 - Who'll be getting it?

I buy it every week anyway. I'm surprised they didn't bundle a gift and jack up the price - they actually haven't done that at all in the school holidays this year, which makes a nice change.

Re: New look forum

Well I think it looks fine except for one minor detail - the Comics UK logo has jagged white outlines. That didn't matter on the main site with it's white background, but it's obvious on the forum. Al, do you have the original files used to create that logo? If it was a PNG instead of a GIF, you cou...

Tesco, huh? Thanks - I already looked in WHSmith for this but it wasn't there.

Re: Commando Announcement

Those other genres used to have their own books - Football and Starblazer (though I think a sports one would need a more versatile title now so it can run things like Tough of the Track). It's a shame they can't expand the pocket library line. It's down to just Commando now, but it used to also have...

I liked kill or be killed as well as TWD and most Bat stuff!
Thanks
You're probably better off at either Reddit or CBR than here.

Re: Marvel Comics #1000 announced

It would be up to to the editors, but there's nothing stopping him making a suggestion. They could've been lazy and just used the company logo! There's actually a version that has the word Marvel from the current logo and Comics from the 90s one, used on some merchandise.

Re: Marvel Comics #1000 announced

Al Ewing's the main writer. He's British, so it's highly likely MWOM is the reason he used that logo, even if it was used somewhere else first.

Marvel Comics #1000 announced

Marvel just announced Marvel Comics #1000... and it uses the old Mighty World of Marvel logo from the 1970s!

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Titan seem to have a distribution problem, as WHSmith still had the previous issue of Doctor Who Comic 8 days after the new one should've come out. They also didn't have Simpsons Comics, issue 21 of which should've been out the same day as DWC, and I've missed issue 20 because, it seems, they never...

Picked up the Cor!!Buster special, and the latest Comic Scene. Both great reads. However, Titan seem to have a distribution problem, as WHSmith still had the previous issue of Doctor Who Comic 8 days after the new one should've come out.

Re: Free comic book day 2019- cant wait

I can guess what happened there. Last year, DC only had one slot instead of their usual two, so they had to charge a nominal fee for the print edition of DC Nation #0. That was free digitally, so presumably was meant to be their second FCBD book. This year DC got their second slot back. I suspect t...
