Re: Hi all

I have a reasonable number of issues of SHOOT , all in mint condition, as far as I can see. I bought them all on the week they came out. The run is from September 9th 1978 to May 3rd 1980, at which point there was a five-week strike. My run continues from June 28th 1980 to July 11th 1981 and from Ju...

What wit, Kashgar? I have looked carefully at Steve's post without detecting any wit whatsoever.

Re: Micron Combat Library

For my interest in all things Micron and G M Smith publishing, I can thank pawbroon for breaking through my resistance in collecting picture libraries other than Commando, Starblazer and Football. Paw Broon!!!!! Now there's a name from the past. According to his 'Viewing Profile' he has not been ac...

Re: British Comic Swapmeet 28th September

Kudos to Bruce Scott for organising a gret day out and thanks to Steve "Action Man" MacManus", Mike Dorey, Alan Hebden and James Nicholas for being kind enough to give up of their time and let us fanboy all over him. I'm sure that there is no such thing as a 'gret day', Col, nor a verb 'to fanboy'....

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I didn't say I was any good, Steve. I can see the correct shots but quite a lot goes wrong from that point. Russ is a reasonable player and Alex is definitely learning steadily, but doesn't yet take the game seriously.

Re: What comics did you buy today?

'I now only have 114 issues missing from the full run' sounds like you're getting the thrill of the hunt in your nostrils, Derek. Next you'll be telling yourself I'll just try to get that number into double figures Sorry about the delay in replying, Ray, but this afternoon I took Lois and Alex plus...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Orpington High Street.. My mother's brother, uncle Cyril and his wife, my auntie Mary, lived in Orpington. In Goddington Lane if memory serves. Their two sons, Michael and John, both went to Oxford University. My father used to hold them up as an example for me to follow, but I didn't want to go ei...

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

Re: RELUCTANTLY SELLING COLLECTION

I assume, Bri, that when you wrote Misry, you meant MISTY. Why did you sell your full run of MISTY without giving me a chance to bid? You knew perfectly well that I had stated that I would buy the full run from you, paying your asking price plus your p&p costs. I do expect a reply, Bri, as I am very...

Re: RELUCTANTLY SELLING COLLECTION

I'll take the full run of MISTY off your hands, Bri. Just name your price, and include the postage and packing costs. You will at least know that they will be with a genuine collector, and therefore appreciated and looked after.

Re: "A pony tale" in Suzy

Derek (aka Phoenix) has emailed me those 3 Patient Penny scans from the Suzy comic I can't take any credit whatsoever, Al, for emailing the scans to you. My only input was to make Stephen, the computer expert, a cup of coffee while he scanned the three pages, and then uploaded them to you. I still ...
