Re: Maria Dembilio

So I've emailed Jenni the scans as it was a bit easier than uploading here, though if any others are interested I can upload here too.

As well as the two Let Me Be episodes, I also sent on the whole Mystery Boy story from M&J #243-249 and a complete story Stupid Cupid from #249.

Re: Maria Dembilio

I should have two more episodes of "Let Me Be" from #297 & #299, so I should be able to scan those in the next few days. I think I also have some complete stories I could add too, I'll have a look.

Re: The Comp

Philcom actually posted that last episode of the Comp for me in an earlier thread, I hadn't been familiar with the Nikki comics at the time either so also some Nikki episodes there.

Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

I've been through the contents of every box without finding a single SPELLBOUND. That's because they were already in the house, hiding under a couple of yearsworth of BUNTY. I'm only missing issue 65 (December 17 1977). If anyone is prepared to scan or photocopy their issue 65, I will be delighted ...

Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

I scanned a bunch of comics and sold them, was in need of space. Couldn't you have made one or two large piles criss-crossed in years, Lorraine, in order to avoid selling them. Worth considering [...] I'm assuming that Ruby is roughly two years old by now, hopefully developing within normal paramet...

Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

My partner probably buys more books than me, so we are well matched! Though we have done a bit of a clear out in the last year. I scanned a bunch of comics and sold them, was in need of space. Of course at different stage of life, toddler takes up lots of space despite being so small!

Re: When did The Happy Days End?

Some great examples of artwork, I am not as confident or knowledgeable about attributing artists but nice to see them getting named.

Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

With only those missing, it means you have an impressive number of girls comics! The closest I think I have to full collection is M&J which is about 20 short. Though when it gets to the stage of tracking individual issues it gets harder!

Re: Scream & Misty Halloween Special, Volume II.

This may also be of interest to people "Bite Me" Magazine (which I am not familiar with), is also stepping up to fill the Misty/Scream/Spellbound gap as a new mystery picture paper. Including 2 Misty reprints Who Killed Teacher and Twin Catastrophes . I am quite intrigued and have ordered a copy, lo...

Yes, I hadn't read that fanzine before so I was not familiar with it.

Re: Scream & Misty Halloween Special, Volume II.

I noticed majority female protagonists even in the "Scream" stories. Bookworm I was already familiar with, Mint Condition I didn't realise was a reprint at first, I really liked that story, so glad they decided to reprint. I think one of the biggest problems with this is that a lot of the stories ar...

Re: Click & Collect sales

I hadn't sold anything on ebay for a while, but currently have a collection of Nikkis listed and there does seem to be changes since I last listed. Like I didn't realise potential bidders could put an offer in, that will then disappear if someone places a bid! Will have to look more carefully at how...

Re: When did The Happy Days End?

Also, I'm pretty sure that there were times when the same storyline was repeated with new artwork. This would have fitted in with Fleetway's assumption that nearly all their readers would automatically move on after four or five years to be replaced by a brand new readership. It'd be interesting to...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I have to say i preferred sniper elite to vigilante and i love most of the characters like Max the computer and Blake Edmunds from my eagle reading days, and i'm not a big fan of war stories though i would love a full set of victor and Battle :lol: but i hope Vigilante becomes a regular comic.does ...
