Re: Changes in store for Crikey! magazine

OK, I mentioned awhile back that there might be changes in store for Crikey! Well, I can now confirm just what those changes are and when they'll be happening, although subscribers should already be aware of them if they've read the final page of the now on sale Crikey! #10. As of #11, due on sale i...

Re: Pub Challenge

I can't believe no-one's mentioned The 13th Floor from Scream/Eagle, or MACH Zero (the prequel to 2000ADs MACH One).

Re: Anybody found any bargains in unexpected places?

Bill is not 'nearly brain dead' incidentally, he is aware of his surroundings, though he will never really recover. Poor Guy! In a way that sounds almost worse - to be seriously brain damaged, yet still aware of what one has lost! Hadn't he recently qualified as a lawyer when it happened? :( - Phil...

Re: Anybody found any bargains in unexpected places?

Funny how he isn't mentioned nowadays. Probably because Marvel only licensed him from Parker Brothers and don't own the copyright. Correct. The Rom series ended with the Spaceknight becoming human again and going back to rebuild his home planet with Earth woman Brandy Clark. They must have been bus...

Re: Anybody found any bargains in unexpected places?

Considering I've never heard of Rom Spaceknight, it must've been bad. I loved Rom: Spaceknight (the underrated Bill Mantlo on a sci-fi epic about a cyborg warrior seeking out alien shapeshifters on Earth), Omega the Unknown (one of Steve Gerber's finest; I don't think he ever wrote a substandard st...

Anybody found any bargains in unexpected places?

I picked up a box of comics from an 'antique auction' in a neighbouring village this morning; didn't have a chance to check them out first, but I got the box fr two quid, so it hardly mattered. A cursory inspection once I got it home has so far turned up, out of the 200 odd comics in the box, twenty...

Re: 2000AD Action Special

You know, looking at this I remembered some early 2000AD specials from 1977 and on. I 've never read them and I was wondering, are the stories in them originals or reprints from the 2000AD magazine? I have most Annuals and they containe great new stories, but what about the Sci-fi Specials? Since I...

Re: Buster adventure strips..

Holy disagreements! It may not have worked for you and your chums, Lew, but in general, Robin was hugely popular in the TV series (I think Burt Ward was extremely funny, myself, with great comic timing) and never really left the comic's main strip for long. He was also popular enough to often take ...

Re: Buster adventure strips..

Nah. JQ was never as popular as Doctor Who or Batman. (I didn't even see it, so it must have clashed with something else.) Besides, we didn't relate to kid characters. We ASPIRED to be the adult heroes. Why play at being Robin when you can be Batman? ;-) Lew Surely young fans of the TV show at leas...

Re: Pub Chat - Now and then, then and now.

We also had Phantom Patrol, which was a group of soldiers in a Landing Craft time-hopping from one era to another with the help of their Space Age gadgets that they had found. Don't know if this one counts, but there was a serial in 1970's Victor where a squad of soldiers were 'kidnapped' by a blac...

Re: Pub Chat - Now and then, then and now.

What about Charlie Peace, who escaped the noose in Victorian London by conveniently stumbling into a time machine and resuming his criminal career in the 1960's?
