Re: Micron Combat Library

I picked up Combat picture library 193 today. I have indexed it onto Grand Comics Database but they have the cover listed as an Overseas Edition. Looking at their image gallery I see some issues are priced at 1/3 whereas most are 1/-. Am I right in assuming the 1/3 issues are overseas copies?

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

In Dempsey and Makepiece on Forces TV last night they staked out Bunters Pie and Mash shop. I don't remember it but a friend tells me it was in Albion Street just down the road from here and he ate in there once. It had Billy Bunter images on the wall.

Re: Champ Comic 1984-85 'We Are United'

Before Champ there was Scoop, a sports comic which ran from 1978 to 1981. Also from DC Thomson but on better quality paper.

Re: Boy's Own Help 1880s

I have some Boys Own Papers including the first issue. I came across some from 1882/83 on Friday but it wasn't the sort of publication to have "Grand Free Gift Number" plastered over its cover. I'll have a look through them in the week.

Re: What comics did you buy today?

The first nursery programme I remember is the Pingwings which may have been Oliver Postgate's first TV series. Also enjoyed the Telegoons at Saturday tea time. Which also reminds me of waiting at the newsagents around 6pm on Saturdays for the classified Evening News for my dad. I have a soft spot fo...

Re: Tiger - how many issues?

Grand Comics Database has every Tiger cover apart from four issues in April & May 1965. If anyone could put them on it would make them happy.

Re: ComicScene 'Old School' Hardback Annual 2021

I've never heard of any of the characters so I don't think "old school" is the correct term to use.

Re: Jackpot Annual 1982 Christmas Cover Art

According to wiki he wasn't allowed to sign his initials until 1947 so perhaps my art predates that.

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

I collected the Great Newspapers Reprinted series in the seventies but the Jack the Ripper reprint of five issues of Police News eluded me until about ten years ago when I came across a copy in Greenwich and paid about £1 for it. This seller has removed the wraparound cover and charged a bit more. h...
