Re: All-Tme Top Five Comics (Past/Present) and Their Best Pe

For me: Star*Lord: the first 12 are simply unbeatable. the whole run had its moments but it certainly declined in the second half. Captain Britain weekly: around the first 20 issues. I loved foes such as the Hurricane, Dr Synne, the Reaver etc but half way through the Red Skull story, it lost its wa...

Re: Steve Ditko dies

He certainly lived life the way he wanted it. More a celebration than commiseration.

Interestingly, Bulletgirl isn't some shy, always needing rescued sidekick, she really does get stuck into the bad guys.

Re: Commando Collectors Swapmeet/Fair

Why not call it 'British Comics Fair' then? I, for one, wouldn't even bother reading something so niche as Commando if I saw that advertised but would be well up for Brit-comics.

Chancing upon comics outside of comics

I've had a couple of these. Here's a laser quest place from Northampton. Anyone recognise the logo?

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

So you get your friend to go higher and higher. If you go over, you contact the loser and say the other one has pulled out, can we settle?

Nice idea :twisted:

It does raise the eyebrows. Loved Star*Lord but the annuals were pretty poor.

With the banned issue? Probably is a bargain. However, I don't think it is. Really nice collection though.

Re: Full 2018 schedule for Treasury of British Comics

Will there be a market for already reprinted Charley's War? Maybe telephone directory ones. Not so sure about expensive hardbacks, given they already exist.

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Bought a load of Wizards and a few Tigers from a charity shop in Edinburgh. 3 for £1. There was a good load of Marvel UK too but at either 50p or £1 each, it just wasn't a good enough deal. Condition distinctly average (i.e. VG or less).

Mostly American apart from that.
