Re: Sparky Book 1979

Only the 1968 edition was shorter at 124 pages- every other edition is 128 pages!
Sure it's not just missing a couple of pages? (!)

Re: NUTTY COMIC

Was the name Plugtown ever actually used? Plug, logically, should have lived in Beanotown, as he was still appearing in the Bash Street Kids throughout his time in Plug and The Beezer.

Re: Sparky Book 1979

Thanks, Raven.

I've recounted the pages and this time they're divisible by 4, so I must have miscounted before.

Thanks, again

So I counted 1,2,3,4 over and over again.
The last 1,2,3,4 was short so there must be a page missing.

Thanks again

Sparky Book 1979

I've just bought a copy of The Sparky Book 1979 off eBay. It's in excellent condition. However, it doesn't appear to have a 'This Book Belongs to ...' page. If it has been removed they've done a good job, it's not obvious. The first page after the endpapers is 'The Sparky people - 80 Laughs'. Can an...

Automatic log out?

How long do you get when posting on the forum before you are automatically logged out (and without any warning)?
I've just spent 30-45 mins (or maybe more) typing in text, only to be told "You need to be logged in to post to the forum" (or suchlike) when I tried to submit it.

I make it that 'The Bustem Boys on Bunkum Island' began in issue no. 304 (rather than 305) and 'Tales from Bunkum Island' ran to issue no. 965.
