Re: 'widescreen' comics: original-format BEEZER and TOPPER

keep 'em coming, blaing! Early 70s-TOPPERS are on my hit-list.....the comic changed direction with more wacky humour during this period, with Send for Kelly taking up the centrespread, [I'd be especially keen to see examples of the full-colour WHIZZERS of OZ by PADDY Brennan that I seem to remember...

Birthday connections - revisited.

A while back, there was a thread about comics appearing on the poster's birthday.

I thought I would revive it here, and ask what events took place during my birth month of February 1965 (the 16th. I know Sparky premiered the previous month).

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I picked up a couple of early Sparkys (although the the back page is missing a coupon. This'll do until I find some replacement issues)

Numbers 62 and 75

three down, 600+ to go.

Re: 'widescreen' comics: original-format BEEZER and TOPPER

Just returned from shopping. The 1976 summer special cost a cool 18p. (I did write 1975, but I checked the copyright on the back page, and it was 1976) I like the Pop, Dick and Harry front cover.. (you can tell, as ususal, it's not going to look good for Pop. ;) ) http://images.brucelaing.id.au/dct/...

Re: 'widescreen' comics: original-format BEEZER and TOPPER

Thanks ISPYSHHHGUY. :)

I did notice a slight misalignment though on the left hand side of the image.

I recently won some Toppers from around 1974, so as soon they arrive in the mail, I'll post an image or two from these.
