Re: The Broons/Oor Wullie annuals and The Sunday Post

OK, I may have semi answered my own query thanks to all your info :D The fifth strip in the 2013 Oor Wullie Annual - Wullie is on his bucket as usual in the first panel - "Thanks tae this Scots Homecoming stuff, we've got relatives comin' frae a' ower." So that was 2009, and a quick looksee tells me...

Re: The Broons/Oor Wullie annuals and The Sunday Post

Yep, my bad, there's 95 strip pages in this years annual (didn't have my counting hat on the right way round earlier this morning), still interested to know which years they were taken from. The real reason behind my query is that I've been thinking about stopping The Sunday Post, too many fluffy no...

The Broons/Oor Wullie annuals and The Sunday Post

Just a quick one, can't find the answer here or via Google. Are the alternate year "new" annuals of The Broons and Oor Wullie just that - new, I mean. Or are they just straight reprints from The Sunday Post. If they are reprints does anyone know the years they are from? The reason I ask is that we t...

Re: Who will be in the top 75 best Dandy characters...

Even if it's just in at number 75, my favourite, of the "newish" characters, has got to be "My Own Genie". Pure brilliance by Jamie Smart, this never fails to raise a chuckle, just wish there was a collected tome somewhere, or I could find that freebie booklet from a few years ago, me and my boys lo...

Re: Issue 1

Well, following my up my original opening post, my five year old LITERALLY jumped for joy when I told him The Phoenix issue 2 had arrived - Yahoo! he shouted. He was equally well impressed that it arrived a day early too. Straight onto "the dinosaur story" he was, pesky schools teaching him to read,...

Re: *ADVERTS SPOILER ALERT* #3617 - 7th Jan 2012

OK, I delved deep! Fittingly, Bananaman takes over the centre pages in Nutty #100, May 9th 1982 - The entire strip is devoted to our hero showing off about being in the middle! "Here we are, Readers - my new pages. Allow me to show you around." "This is the second picture. Nice and roomy, isn't it?"...

Re: *ADVERTS SPOILER ALERT* #3617 - 7th Jan 2012

It has to be sometime between 1985 and 1999, as Geering died in 1999 and Bananaman didn't occupy two full pages until he moved to Dandy - he gained the familiar look in 1983 when the TV show started, but at that time only had a page and a half, as he was the cover star of Nutty. My box of Nuttys is...

Re: *ADVERTS SPOILER ALERT* #3617 - 7th Jan 2012

Retro Beano is missing. Pup Parade also, although there are 3 pages of BSK this week. There's room for a full page ad plugging Bananaman merchandise! My son shows interest in the old cartoon for sale in a DVD set (which I hated when I was younger, I like my original Nutty Bananaman before they start...

Issue 1

It is here! (along with my long awaited issue 2 of Strip Magazine, but that's another story) My son is well impressed (me too natch), it builds on the excellence of issue zero. Have read Pirates of Pangaea (first story), shaping up nicely - enjoying getting to know the "editors" as well. Bunny vs Mo...

Re: Any subscribers got their first issue yet?

Finally got my subs issue 2 today.

Nothing wrong with the comic, love it, but this misinformation about the subs leaves a sour ta...

Re: *ADVERTS SPOILER ALERT* #3617 - 7th Jan 2012

Ooer, is this a sign we're nearing the end of The Dandy this new year? No. Let's nobble that theory before it gains legs again. I was only half kidding (honest). But you are the man to ask Lew, as you drew the lead in strip. Can you shed any light on Bananaman in The Beano - the ad says "starting" ...
