Re: Comics on TV

On Youtube, there's a 1949 British film called Stop Press Girl..
There are two newspapers in it, the Morning Sun and the Evening Comet.
Also in 1949, Associated Press took over the comics Comet and Sun.
This is probably a coincidence, but it's quite a big coincidence

Digifiend

Adventure Time is already up to issue three of Adventure Time Season 11, the comic book continuation of the T V series, so the UK reprint is good for a while yet it would seem.

It's Royal mail who deliver the mail, not Post Office, so you'd have to heave a brick through your local Royal Mail delivery office.

Fantasy Unlimited started off as sales list for dealer Alan Austin, becoming an excellent comics fanzine which was eventually retitled Comics Unlimited, running for many years in the seventies.

There's a lovely tribute to him at https://30thcenturycomics.co.uk/alan-austin/
