Re: Favourite photo stories

In ballet stories I do think the photostory had an advantage because they got in real-life people who could do the ballet poses correctly and gracefully, whereas in drawn ballet stories this was not always the case. Either the artist could not draw ballet correctly or did not have the right style f...

Re: Favourite photo stories

No matter how good the photography is, a photo story is far more limited in what it can do than a picture story - spooky or sf stories, for example. I agree, and I think this goes well beyond the photo story’s inability to do the unreal, such as supernatural or fantasy stories. Pat Mills is quite r...

No matter how good the photography is, a photo story is far more limited in what it can do than a picture story - spooky or sf stories, for example. However, there are cases where photos do bring off a story better. Take Slaves of The Nightmare Factory from Girl II for example. Doing the story in ph...

Trying to find a couple of episodes of The Power over Patti

I am trying to find two episodes of The Power over Patti, dated Debbie #282 (8 July 1978) and #284 (22 July 1978). And no, 30th Century Comics does not have them. Can anyone help please? Thank you.

Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

In an attempt to determine which serials in SPELLBOUND will actually make the final cut where my next book is concerned, I was working my way steadily and methodically through my complete collection this morning when Rach rang and asked me if I could take Lois to her ballet class in Lelant at 11.15...

Re: New Tammy & Jinty Special coming

Well, we are agog to find out what will be in the Tammy & Jinty Special. It sounds like the material will be 100% new, but will we see some old faces (such as Bella, Pam, Molly, Wee Sue, and Button Box) rebooted and drawn by new hands? If they bring back Bella they will definitely need an artist who...

Re: New Tammy & Jinty Special coming

This is exciting! I think I'll get a bundle, there are 4 comics I would be interested in getting; Tammy & Jinty, 13th Floor, Vigilant and Cor! Buster, so may as well get the two extra 2000AD issues for similar price. I really like all this new material coming out yearly along with the reprints, loo...

Re: New Tammy & Jinty Special coming

Thank you for the link.
I wonder what will be in the special? Pam of Pond Hill? Bella? Molly? Gypsy Rose? Fran'll Fix It? They don't seem to give much on detail.

I see The Thirteenth Floor has a special too. Pity Misty doesn't have one. Oh well, can't have everything.

Re: Another appeal for help in finding a serial

Well, it looks like we've reached the end of the road on this one, at least for now.
