Re: Scouse Mouse / Ace comics

Blat's completely new to me! Any chance of a look at what it's like on the inside? I loved my Were Bear as a kid, going to be on the lookout for the comics... They also appeared in another comic called Z (a comic tie-in with Toymaster I think?), although in an unofficial form. I posted some scans fr...

Re: Comics on TV

From Alexi Sayle's Merry-Go-Round (1998) - a few issues of Spit and Zit and the like can be seen on the top shelf to the left of Alexi's head:

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

I'd expect it to go for at LEAST half - it's out of print, and obviously frustrating for those who missed it. Compared to the prices on Amazon Marketplace it's a fair price.

Re: What comics did you buy today?

That's another good book if it's the one I'm thinking of. Saucy Postcards?

Got it for £3 from a book clearance shop (The Works)... Then went back and got another as an Xmas present for someone :)

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Just picked the book up for 2 pounds 80 on e-bay. inc postage second-hand. That's cheaper than the current comic, which is 3 pounds 25, I think...... Fast worker, eh, readers! Brilliant companion to the comics what I remember of it. THB: your info helped me a lot to pinpoint that particular book. T...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I'm envious, it'd be great to re-discover Viz all over again :)

There's a book called The Big Hard One (usually less than a fiver on Amazon) that collects the contents of most of the first 12 issues, the REALLY early stuff is unlike anything else out there...

Re: Scouse Mouse / Ace comics

Yep, that's the one - I also got the first two issues of another George Nicholas comic called Wanted, which features such characters as Budgie Malone, Owl Capone, The Swiney and Inspector Spectre.

Re: Scouse Mouse / Ace comics

As of yesterday, I now have two issues of Scouse Mouse Presents Ace - one of which says "1st Edition" on the cover.

Re: Rebellion acquire Egmont's archive of strips and charact

Relaunching Big Comic Fortnightly or the BVC or something similar along those lines would be a wonderful thing.

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Early Viz is fantastic, you're going to have a great time - I got "The Sausage Sandwich" and "The Dog's Bo**ocks" from a car boot sale when I was far too young, and our auntie used to read us Spoilt Bas*ard (changing the swear words though, he became "Spoilt Brat"), so it's sort of "been there" thro...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

There's no denying Simon Thorp's ridiculously (scarily even!) talented, but even that Sh***ish Islands map was nearly twenty years ago! There was another one a few years after that, a map of "C*ntinental Europe"... The art's still good in Viz, but the writing's took a massive nose dive over the last...
