Re: Need help finding early 70s comic

Likewise welcome back, Steel Claw! Darren - found strip by complete fluke. Synchronicity in action, maybe? Ian Kennedy -- isn't it high time somebody put out a proper compilation/tribute to this guys lengthy and impressive body of work? Preferably while he's still alive to appreciate it? I did not k...

Re: Need help finding early 70s comic

Hello, I'm new here -- I wonder if anyone can help me? I'm looking for an ongoing boy's adventure story that I remember seeing in a comic as a child, roughly around 1973/1974? Alas, I don't remember the title, or even which comic it appeared in. My memory of it is quite vague, but a couple of thing...

Re: News of the World is history!

No, thanks largely to the Murdochs looking after their top woman. Rebekah Brooks (nee Wade) was NoW editor when all this was going on, yet she's kept her job as News International chief executive. If she got the deserved sack, I bet she'd have a lot of stories to tell the police. She would very lik...

Re: Just Books

Just finished Skeleton Man, another Tony Hillerman book featuring his duo of Navajo policemen (Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee), which puts me in the camp of people who read books with recurring characters. Mind you, you've got to like the characters and the writing to want to come back for more. Not sure...

Re: British Superheroes

I'm currently gathering research for an extended project i'm doing in college. My project is going to be based on British Superheroes and why they haven't reached a success as big as american superheroes. But I'm finding it quite hard to find a lot of information on British Superheroes, i'd be very...

Re: Gene Colan RIP

I was sorry to here about Colan's passing as well. Again I'd have to mention HTD as being a favourite, as well his short second run on Daredevil before Miller took over. I also really liked the b&w books he did in the eighties. Somewhere or other I've got a folio of his -- one of those tribute mags ...

Re: Missing Links

Hi DreamTicket, I've had a look at the old Links page to locate the site that you're after. It may have been the British Comic Art blog (http://britishcomicart.blogspot.com/): Janus link: http://britishcomicart.blogspot.com/search?q=janus Cursitor Doom: http://britishcomicart.blogspot.com/search?q=...

Re: Need some help please

There's a collectables dealer on the main road into Boscombe, a few miles before you actually reach Boscombe. I'm afraid I don't know the name of the road or the shop though. He stocks a lot of comics and annuals, British AND American. He might be worth checking out. Although I would second the com...

Missing Links

I've just noticed we no longer have the set of links we used to have to other sites. I'm trying to find the site that (among other things) repro'd a bunch of stories from the likes of Janus Stark, Cursitor Doom, and Steel Claw. Does that ring any bells with anyone, and can you oblige me with a link ...

Re: Just Books

Nice to see such an eclectic mix of books being enjoyed by everyone! I've just finished No Good From A Corpse by Leigh Brackett. She's better known for her science fiction and film scripts, but this hardboiled detective fiction was her first novel. Keep meaning to pick up some of her Sci-Fi as I enj...

Re: VALIANT LAST ON THE MASTHEAD

The board certainly can't afford to lose its Tottenham fans, so I'm hoping Steel Claw will come back to tell us what he thinks of Spurs signing up 40 year old Brad Friedl?

Good cover, I think. Still a top goalie and, unlike most profs, lucid and coherent on T.V..

Re: Dundee University launches degree in comic books

How much is it going to cost a non-Scottish student to follow this course?

I take it there isn't a distance learning version available. While we are on the subject, does anyone know of any similar courses available inside the E.U.? It would be surprising if this was the first such course.

The High Seas comic looks worth reading. Artwork looks European.

Is it as good on the inside, Phil?

Re: Disney ban non-American Marvel comics

Even Disney's bizarre behaviour is paling into insignificance next to DC's decision to apparently reboot their entire line, renumbering some of the world's longest running titles for no apparent reason and probably alienating half their existing fan base in the process... This didn't work for Marve...
