Re: The Happy Days (Sue Day)

Don't worry, I knew you weren't looking to correct me, I'm just someone who's a stickler for accuracy & like to know my facts right (it's what I do for a living). Yeah, thanks for the link, I had a look (also saw article that the other comics had been douing "darker" strips before Tammy which was fi...

Re: The Happy Days (Sue Day)

Aha I stand corrected. I've never seen those specials/annuals, but I'd really love to own & am looking for 'em. I'll re-word that as it's a shame that Sue Day didn't make it to the weekly editions of June. Just thought of the if onlys relating to the June title... If only the Sally comic had merged ...

Re: The Happy Days (Sue Day)

Been discovering Sue Day - good storytelling, characters & impressed with artwork.

I learned she spent her final months in the Pixie comic, which later merged into June, but Sue didn't make it there. Shame - could've been under the same roof as Lucky's Living Doll & co. If only...

Re: TV Comic - which publisher & non-TV strip memories

I was saying - I remember TV Terrors & that was good the way the kids got around doorman Hoppit, though he'd claim a few victories. Mighty Moth never did anything for me - I think its artist Dick Millington later drew some strips in the Daily Mail, including a One Foot In The Grave esqe series calle...

Re: Murphy's Mob - Look In

Yeah, I remember this - MM got front cover when strip launched. It ran around time of second series, when a girl called Becky joined them; she was the neighbour of 'tached troublemaker Bernie Russell, who eventually blew the whistle on one of his scams against the mob. In Loon-In the main troublemak...

Re: Why are men collecting old girls' comics these days?

Thanks for that - I was never into War comics, but I read about this Major Eazy. Does sound a bit bog-standard James Coburnesque character. I do like looking at football strips & action motor racing & some Boys Own is good too. Just to think though that women do things like play football, race cars,...

Re: The Girls From Noodle

Thanks for that, I'll have to try & seek out those Miss Adventures & look into some Dianas. I think I recently flicked through a 60s Diana annual, but didn't find this strip in it - it's one I'd like to look into & research more. I did recently read a "Jane Bond" strip in a Princess Tina annual - lo...

The Girls From Noodle

Does anyone remeber this 60s strip? I've tried to find further information, but without success. All I remember reading about it was when flicking through an A-Z of British comic strips a few years ago. I can't remember which comic it was in, but there were 2 girls called Nicola & Gail who got given...

Re: Why are men collecting old girls' comics these days?

I agree with most of those theories - though who is Major Eazy? I don't regard these as strictly girls' stories either - they're great well-told plotlines with a heroine at the forefront & girls who like to always get stuck in, be adventurous & get their hands dirty (never worry about broken fingern...

Re: TV Comic - which publisher & non-TV strip memories

Oops sorry if I offended anyone... will have to eat some words now I've read and thought. Will say that yes, TV comic did have some good artistry - I once read a 60s edition & Popeye Beetle Bailey (Mike Noble - legend!) & World Cup Willie (1966 mascot) - are spot on! When I got it in 70s, it may hav...

TV Comic - which publisher & non-TV strip memories

Not sure where TV comic would fit re:publishers. Am having memories of some of the less obvious non-TV strips (ie excludes MIghty Moth/TV Terrors etc). I'm remembering first, Nelly & Her Telly, about a girl who watches a telly, daydreams herself in the show, then back in reality she's acting it & ge...

Re: the Beezer blog

Just want to say I was a regular Beezer reading from c.1976-78 & had some on & off before that, very much covering the period the Cracker merged in. Did have a good collection but my parents made me burn a load or give to jumble sales (esp after I gave up comics for a bit, until I started reading Lo...

Why are men collecting old girls' comics these days?

I was talking to an secondhand shop owner who revealed that men are collecting old girls comics & annuals. Not only that but she said that quite its a lot of "alpha" males too. Anyone know why this is? My theories: perhaps it's becuse of the lack of decent action girls on tv & in comics? Lack of goo...
