Re: Jumping Frog

Can someone assure me this was not a free gift with the Dandy? I presume The Dandy written on it refers to the person who would have carried it in the wild west. Guns were more likely to have been given away with boy's papers. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-toy-pistol-free-gift-with-the-Dandy-co...

Re: Some help with a Princess magazine

My mate Steve checked his copies and sent this reply: I have looked at issues between 1960 and 1964 and there are no tennis stories. I don’t think there is any point looking at later issues given Goolagong’s age. She probably meant Bunty.

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Kempton Park antiques fair is back on July 7th. Just hope I can find my way there with my hair down over my eyes. Barbers will be a madhouse next Saturday week.

Re: Roy of the Rovers coming back?

I don't have the space to buy modern comics anymore. I did see the more traditional art further on. I'll have another glance tomorrow to make sure the art was as appaling as I thought.

I've just noticed the link in my message above shows the new look "Hannah-Barbera" style Roy. An insult.

Re: Roy of the Rovers coming back?

In Tesco this morning I saw a Roy of the Rovers Summer Special. Awful modern style art for the first story.

Re: Need help identifying a Reg Smythe daily strip feature

The copyright BULLS could suggest it was from John Bull magazine which was still going up to the early sixties. I've asked my mate Steve to check as he collects John Bull magazine and may also have Reg Smythe's biography.

Re: Not just any old East London pie and mash shop

I had a chat with the owner George Manze last Saturday and said I remembered his mum serving me in the late sixties/early seventies. He said she's still with us! Must be nearly ninety. The shop has been there for 120 years. (Cold turkey is reserved for boxing day with mash and Haywards mustard pickl...

Re: Lockdown rambles ( without pics.)

I leave for Kempton Park at around 8.30am and don't get home until about 2.30pm without once needing a toilet. Why do people have such weak bladders? I used to arrive at work around 9.30am and not use the toilet until about 5.30pm. I could have been a superhero. Look its Super Bladder Man! See how h...

Re: Lockdown rambles ( without pics.)

Yes I'm hoping Antique fairs will be open as they are open air markets. Kempton Park beckons. I've used lockdown to index comics onto Grand Comics Database. Added the last three of my Alan Class comics this morning.

Re: Not just any old East London pie and mash shop

I went to Deptford High Street and found the pie and mash shop was trading again albeit take-away only through the window. Had pie, mash and liquor for tea for the first time in weeks. Cold turkey over.

Re: Ebay - you want how much for it???

I was ready to bid £200.00 on these comics as Captain America Comics #2 was included. But a few minutes before it ended I decided to make sure the comic wasn't reprinted. Sure enough in the early seventies there was a series of 38 golden age reprints called the Alan Light Flashback series. The origi...

Re: GI-GI of the circus and her horse GO-GO

Hi, Ramon. Are you the same Ramon who works on Grand Comics Database? I'm Steve Mitchell who contributes to that website. I've indexed a couple of comics today. One thing the lockdown is good for. Apologies for going off topic.
