Re: Classics to end next month

I'm hoping that the final issue would be a deluxe issue, so that any adventure strips that were included in the last few months can be completed without having to find the issues, but I don't see that happening.

Re: A few facts and figures

Digifiend , what I'm refering to is the little badge saying from which comic it came from. In the earliest issues, they didn't include the year the comic originated. The very first issues of Classics (I have number 2) just only has the description of "Classic ????" but no year. (E.G. "Classic Dandy...

A few facts and figures

I'm planning to a post on my blog next week on my thoughts of the final issue of "Classics from the Comics", and I need sone facts and figures. What I'm after is the issue when they started to print the year on the "classic" badge, and the first issue with the second "Classics" logo first appeared. ...

Re: Classics to end next month

:censored: :censored: :censored: :( and with next month's issue, I'll be six issues into my subscription too. :( I have thoroughly enjoyed reading Classics, and it'll be something I'll miss reading every month. R.I.P. Classics from the Comics - 1996-2010. Wonder if I'll be able to use the rest of my...

Re: Classics out early

Peter. I have had a look at the new page for subscribers, and there won't be a thirteenth issue (moreso now that I've read Lew's post. :( ) You can check Classics from the Comics's schedule by logging on to your subscriber account with your subscription number, and the name you have your subscriptio...

Re: Whoopee with Shiver and Shake - Issue dated 12/4/1975

Well, that's something I didn't know. (I'm sure the John Wayne comics would have been in the 1960's, a bit before my time.) :?

I'll have a search for them books, for sure. :)

Re: Beano Story at The Works

I recently got my copy (naturally from Amazon.co.uk ;) ) for sixteen pounds. (which, including shipping and handling (around 25 pounds total) set me back about $45 dollars.

A similar tome like History of The Beano would retail here for around $100. :shock:

Lew.

Outside of the comic reprints from the newspapers (Snake Tales, Footrot Flats) in book form, and of course "The Phantom", we didn't have much of a comics industry here as far as I know back then.

Re: Whoopee with Shiver and Shake - Issue dated 12/4/1975

Were you in Australia back then? I know the IPC comics were sold there - I always noticed the Australia 20c price on them. If so, were they well distributed or hard to find? Did they turn up many weeks late? I was actually born here. :) It's the same here today than it was back then, the comics wer...

Re: Whoopee with Shiver and Shake - Issue dated 12/4/1975

Anyway ... isn't Whoopee and Shiver and Shake a fantastic comic? One of the best IPC fun comic line-ups ever, I think. At least you still have Evil Eye, Scream Inn and the Bumpkin Billionaires. Yep! Whoopee (with Shiver and Shake) was one of the first Fleetway/IPC humour titles I read in my childho...

Re: Whoopee with Shiver and Shake - Issue dated 12/4/1975

Iv'e had all day to think about it, and decided not to buy from him again.

It might have been a wasted effort if I did take up the offer. :(

Re: Comics on TV

I'be bought the entire run of "Open All Hours", so if I get the time, I'll peruse the DVD's for the Look-In and Buster references, and post both in a future post in my blog.

Re: Whoopee with Shiver and Shake - Issue dated 12/4/1975

Digifiend.

He did ask if there were any pages missing. If there were, he would give me a 20% discount on my next order.

So, I'm taking up that offer.
