Re: Doctor Who 2011

To my mind Russell Davies had a much better grasp of structure, producing stories that stood on their own terms regardless of any sub-plots that were being developed in the background. By contrast Moffat reminds me of so many modern comicbook and TV scripters who simply avoid any sense of narrative...

Re: Whats the best way to store old Beanos?

Hmmm. I didn't realise there was a special box for 2000AD. I just bought some boxes described as Magazine sized, presuming they were American mag sized. I assumed this was the biggest box available and would cope with most British weekies. What size 2000AD are you referring to here? The taller new s...

Re: Whats the best way to store old Beanos?

I usaully store mine on top of each other to save space. Thanks...I was thinking more in terms of what in, i.e. plastic wallets, binders, boxes etc to make sure they stay in the same good condition they've managed to be in after years being hidden under a bed! I have all mine bagged and in magazine...

Just Books

No comics. No Graphic Novels. Just books. What has everybody been reading lately/what are you reading now? No spoilers, needless to say. I'm reading Tony Hillerman's The Sinister Pig and recently finished Terri Hooley's amusing (auto)biography, which explains why you are getting the following link: ...

Re: FOOTBALL SEASON 2010/11

Yes, they did very well all season, and I'm sure they can do well in the Premier League next season. The likes of Sinclair and Borini are quality players, and they've got a good balance too - solid in defence but also strong going forward. It's a massive blow to Cardiff, beating beaten to the Premi...

Re: IE 9

What's happened to the Work Off-Line option? It seems to have disappeared in IE9 (or have they hidden it somewhere else)?

Re: Anyone collect small press titles . . .

I used to track them down via the small ads in the back of Comics International, alas, no more. I also went through a burst of buying from Smallzone, who had a fantastic selection at the time. Honourable mentions go to Mike Nicholson's Ron Comics, and Adam Jakes' Whatever. There was a really good an...

Re: FOOTBALL SEASON 2010/11

How do Spurs fans feel about the Europa League? Assuming they make it (do they have to go through some preliminaries)? A poison chalice or something worth going for (along with Stoke and Birmingham next season). That doesn't seem like a strong line-up to represent English football (no disrespect to ...

Re: Doctor Who 2011

Talking to some non-fans at the weekend and they were saying they've gone off this series because it's "too geeky" and confusing. Sadly some viewers just want everything explained for them and neatly tied up in one or two episodes. I hope the majority of viewers stick with it though. I enjoyed Neil...

Re: FOOTBALL SEASON 2010/11

Gomez is going from bad to worse that's hope Spurs get a new goalie next season, Spurs will finish 6th after Liverpool now :roll: And my fantasy football team is well and truly cack. Unfortunately I agree about 6th. Tend to blame the ref for the Chelsea result and not Gomez. Wasn't Gomez man of the...

Re: Preservation

I am not too sure what you mean by saying they are "DRIED out"? I mean the glue is going along the spine and some pages are beginning to detach. Have you been storing them near a radiator or anywhere exposed to heat? Have you checked to see if any insects have been eating the glue? They've been muc...

Re: Preservation

My Dandy and Beano annuals from the seventies are as white and crisp from the day they were got as is a 1969 Wham annual. Whereas my IPC annuals are tanned at the edges IPC used cheaper paper for their annuals. I never originally bagged my annuals but I bag all of them now. I'm noticing something s...

IE 9

Internet explorer 9. Is there such a thing and is anyone using it yet?

IE 8 was as fast as I want things to be. Are they going to keep tinkering away until they eventually reach IE nth ?
