Westworld Tarzan publications and members gift badge

Hello from China everyone! I've kept my website running despite being far from the UK. I've had someone message me about a club badge called "Westworld Tarzan Club" from 'Tarzan the Grand Adventure Comic'.

Re: Rocket Comic 1956 Full Set

There was never a problem with the original link Phoenix thus it was either your browser or you clicked on it before eBay had officially launched it at 19:10:20. Hence why no one else has had a problem.

Re: Rocket Comic 1956 Full Set

Must be your browser? Here's another link;
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rocket-Comic- ... SwDuJWu1zH

Alternatively if you search "Rocket Comic 1956" it's the second result.

Re: Rocket Comic 1956 Full Set

It's that delay on eBay again. I'd selected 19:00 but was told it would be listed at 19:10:20

Re: Rocket Comic 1956 Full Set

Hello one and all! I am temporarily back in the UK, on holiday from my job in China. After much internal debate, I have decided to downsize part of my collection, including this lot of Rocket comics. I have placed them up for auction and they are scheduled to start at 19:10 this evening (February 10...

Re: What comics DIDN'T you buy today?

Stash of 1970s Beano, Bunty, Mandy comics from Stafford carboot. They were all over the place in dirty boxes. They would have cleaned up OK but seller insisting on £2 each! Seller said that's the "eBay price". What he obviously couldn't comprehend is that some people tend to take a bit more care of ...

Buster Comic Flyer

Hi all, Just thought I'd post this here, I was delighted to find this rather colourful flyer for the Buster comic free gifts. It mentions on the flyer "Buster's Boomerang" and "Buster's Book of Flyince Aces" I wish some of the Beano / Dandy one's were like this! https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/...

Re: The return of The Yeti

Wasn't there a Yeti that merged with the Dandy in the 1980s? Either from Nutty or Hoot....oh wait, just come to me, I might be thinking of the Polar Bear, Polar Blair?

Re: Swearing in the Beano!?

The one finger gesture is ancient but I wasn't aware of it being used in the UK until the 1980s when it appeared in some American films. So I'm guessing Leo might not have been aware of it either in 1960. Wow! Is this true? Excuse my age (27) but I had no idea it was a relatively new hand gesture i...

Re: Beano The Three Bears First Appearance

Ah, that's great, thanks for the info!

I'm got some Beano comics up for auction later tonight and I'd listed this one as "First Three Bears". I was going by the "Starts Today" next to the title. I'll update the listing to say first regular appearance, 4 week trial occurred previously.

Cheers,

Adam
