GRANDPA BROON WIDOWER

I BUY THE SUNDAY POST MOST WEEKS AND REMEMBER A BROONS STRIP RECENTLY WHERE GRANDPA BROONS ALLUDES TO HIS WIFE HAVING DIED SIXTY YEARS AGO. I WAS SLIGHTLY ASTONISHED AS THIS, TO MY MIND, IS THE FIRST INSTANCE OF A CHARACTER IN A HUMOUROUS STRIP REFERING TO A DEATH IN THE FAMILY. AM I RIGHT? AND DOES...

Does anyone remember Super DC?

Yes and that reminds me of Baby Crockett digging a tunnel through the snow from his front door and round in circles until he came back to his front door again. I love the winter in comics. Also Ginger in bed, his bed always looked really cosy.

Does anyone remember Super DC?

I bought the first issue of Super DC and would have got them all if i'd known it would only last 12 issues. I think Dennis Gifford did some cartoons and Mick Anglo's name cropped up i think. It's one of those old comics that never seems to turn up anywhere not even on ebay. Was a good idea and even ...

Fantastic 40th anniversary

I photocopied some of the Barry Smith pin-ups on the back cover of Fantastic and sent them to Rascally Roy Thomas for inclusion in his Alter Ego magazine as it might be of interest to American readers who'd never seen them. Barry might object though so they may not appear - I don't know what sort of...

Mike Noble article in Elephantmen 6

The first comic i ever collected was TV21 and I loved Mike Noble's art. His Fireball XL5 was so easy on the eye. Especially remember those snowmen and the giant animals and insects. When he worked for Look-In he drew Follyfoot I think which I considered a waste of his talent - although some might sa...

Commando-more reprint issues?

I've just received the latest Commandos and two of them were reprints. Nothing unusual there except for the fact that two of the last lot were reprints too! It looks like they may have gone from six new titles out of eight each month to four out of eight. It could have been then dreaded deadline doo...

TV COMIC

I remember missing the last issue of TV Comic and so wrote to the editor offering to pay for a copy, he sent me a copy of the last issue for free and enclosed a letter saying how angry he was that the comic had been discontinued. I still have the letter but it is in storage. During the seventies whe...

Anyone know much about these.

these are just two issues of the UK comics (one tucked inside the other) and sold overseas. The only difference is the masthead on the outside comic. All the contents are exactly the same as the UK issues so if you have a gap you could use one of these. The inside comic is usually taken out and sold...
