Re: Rebellion reveal their plans for classic Fleetway charac

I was wondering how Lew was going to get around his past comments on the Beast of Selbridge. Can't wait for my copy. I didn't suspect there would be that interest in Marney in this grim'n'gritty age. Although I can't say it's for me. A little too gentle for my tastes. But I'm glad there's an audience.

Re: One-Eyed Jack's back!

I also hope people buy it from Rebellion as it helps fund more releases.

Re: What comic of yesteryear could survive if revived?

Preachy towards the end? Are you sure? Crisis basically gave up politics towards the end and became an art comic with the likes of Fellini, Straitgate, Bible John and the real Robin Hood. I'd have thought it was more preachy in the beginning with Third World War. Although I loved it at the time.

Re: Rebellion reveal their plans for classic Fleetway charac

Given that I reprinted the Beast of Selbridge in Starscape, this is one for me. I've already ordered the hardback.

Re: Were British comics created solely for children?

A slightly different tack here...growing up in the Seventies, I always found the Wizard/Victor etc. DCT comics quite boring (as someone once said, the DC stands for Dull Comics). They didn't have the vibrancy, immediacy and action of Fleetway's output. Most of the central characters were mature men ...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I bought issues 1-3 of Whoopee! for £8. I hesitated as they weren't in great condition but then realised that I don't actually collect humour comics, so if they were in better condition, I'd never want to spend enough to buy them. So very happy with them.

Free COMIC BOOK DAY TODAY Having looked at some of the previews and saturday being my normal weekly town visit I think TEX PATAGONIA looks like the one that will be of interest to me. http://www.freecomicbookday.com/catalog I was hoping for that as well. No such luck. I was over in Italy recently w...

Re: Complete runs of comics on DVD

I think climate change trumps them all (so to speak), therefore we shouldn't mind the arms race :?:

You know you are allowed to have an opinion on a variety of issues, not just the total annhilation ones?

Loved the Machine Master issue. Probably my favourite of the entire series.

Re: 2000AD - Why Never a DCT equivalent?

Sorry, I raced ahead of myself and didn't mention half my post. I meant as part of Commando. Instead of just reprinting Commando stories, they could do, e.g. Union Jack Jackson from Warlord. Bear Alley Books also reprinted Frontline UK (Bullet) and Arena (The Crunch). I did try with DCT in the past....

Re: 2000AD - Why Never a DCT equivalent?

When I ran the comic shop, Starblazer was one of the most consistent back-issue sales. For me, that would be the comic that could work if it was brought back. Mind you, I think that whole format featuring reprints of old Victor/Hotspur etc. strips would work.

Re: British Comic Mergers - Good or Bad?

Whizzer didn't merge with Chips did it? I thought it came out as a two in one title, like Shiver and Shake. Although I thought Battle Action was a good comic, I did like the way they veered away from the more traditional Battle Picture Weekly AND Action Comic title. Mind you, they also did that wit...

Re: British Comic Mergers - Good or Bad?

Whizzer merged with Chips, then with Krazy meaning it was called Whizzer, Chips and Krazy, although due to some incompetent it was accidentally christened Whizzer & Chips with Krazy. An accident they felt obliged to keep until the end.

Re: First British Comic Merger

I wonder if it would be Picture Fun and Film Fun in 1920? It's a little difficult as comics like the Funny Wonder and the Jester look as though they are merged comics but there was no merger. They simply changed titles to suit. Some being the one, sometimes another and at other times, neither or a m...
