Re: Happy 100th Birthday, Rupert Bear

Ah, loved watching the Rupert the Bear cartoons as a kid in the 1970s. Bit of trivia: As a Welshman was fascinated once to learn that artist Alfred Bestall himself lived for many years in Wales. Beddgelert in the Vale of Clwyd to be exact. And much of the landscape that featured in the Rupert storie...

Re: Ebay - you want how much for it???

I've just noticed that Beezer was for my actual date of birth. I was lucky to be born of a Saturday. Ditto. In fact I collect comics that has my DOB. I myself never collected comics for specific dates, but do source ones that feature art that I own. Saying that though, I did a obtain a comic for my...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I’ve picked up the pre-publication test print of Wham 1. Packed full with strips but also with a fair few blank pages where the adverts should be. This has been discussed on the forum before but I would not be surprised if copies were printed and used by the advertising team as samples of the inten...

Re: Ebay - you want how much for it???

What a rare find. I think this could go for a lot more yet. Yeah, I agree. It'll probably go to into the late hundreds, especially if two bidders get into a bidding frenzy. The likelihood is, whoever wins wants to marry the free gift up with the issue that they own. I'd do the same if my pockets we...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Spent more than I normally do for a book this morning in a charity shop and that was £6 for the Amalgamated press Billy the Kid book. 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 a...

Original Hugh Morren Dandy Comic Art

Hi all! I recently obtained this original Just Jimmy Dandy comic art by Hugh Morren. The strip featured in issue #850 from the 8th March 1958. It's quite a large page too, which was a surprise when it arrived. Hoping to source, as I normally do with any comic art bought, the very issue that the art ...

Re: Ĺucky buy

Yeah, would be fascinating to see how members store their collections. My 1930s, 40s & 50s Beanos & Dandy are all in collector bags and placed in a plastic tub with little bags of anti moisture crystals. Better safe than never, I say. ☺️ The biggest comic haul me and my brother ever had was when a v...

Re: Ĺucky buy

Hey, well done Abacus! Love attending Bootsales too. The bug started when I was a kid. Used go to school summer fetes and later jumble sales looking for comics & annuals with our parents. No joke, me & my brother collected hundreds of comics & annuals in our time. It got to the point where we were r...

Re: Jackpot Annual 1982 Christmas Cover Art

Ahhhhhhhh..... who can remember the Jackpot Annual & Comic by Fleetway Press? I do. Had the comic on order at my local newsagent, among others, and every week would run home from school to see if my mother had picked it up. It was superb. Great stories and even greater characters. Anyway, a few yea...
