Re: ? Free Gift Wild West Weekly

You are correct, it was from WWW. It was one of 2 booklets given away as free gifts. I have a bound set of the first 40 or so issues and I have 3 of the 4 booklets given away with the first two issues.

Re: What did you get for Christmas?

Amongst other things, I received the Miller Western Comic Books by John Fairclough which is a great guide to the Len Miller reprints of the 1940s, 50s and 60s. I have many if them but now I have a definitive list of the ones I still need.

Re: What Christmas Comics Have You Bought Recently?

Brilliant, gentlemen. I bought a complete year of Battle Picture Weekly s (1976), a complete year of Hotspur s (1978) and a complete year of Valiant s. What year of Valiant? I have the set and last year I read 1974 and 1975 as I read them as a kid when they came out. I loved them and even remembere...

Re: What comics do you read on a regular basis?

Currently it’s the Red Dagger series which will be followed by the Dan Dare Hawk books but that could be interrupted depending on what Santa brings!

Re: Your Favourite Time for Having Comics

For me it has to be 1975/6 and the explosion of UK Marvel titles which meant that every penny I could earn still wasn’t enough to buy all the titles I wanted. Walking home from the newsagents, reading the latest Captain Britain or MWoM was always such a joy........even when I once walked straight in...

Is it usual for two parcels for the same address to be delivered on separate days? I'm starting to panic.
I wouldn't worry Steve, I've had that happen a couple of times before and both I believe were with MyHermes.

Micron Combat Library

Just going through the comics I picked up from the Swapmeet and I find that I have doubled my colection of Micron Combat Library by picking up Issue 70. Looking around the interweb thingy and I find that these text libraries lasted to at least issue 76. The one other fact I can add from the indicia...

Re: British Comic Swapmeet 28th September

thanks to Steve "Action Man" MacManus", Mike Dorey, Alan Hebden and James Nicholas for being kind enough to give up of their time and let us fanboy all over him. I had to laugh when I was buying comics off of Stephen and he just apologised and left me as he had to do and see one of the professional...

For any one interested, March 2020 will be in Glasgow. Swapmeet 5 means that I now only need four issues to complete my run of Commando to date. The lowest issue is 370 and the highest is 4193.
There's also very early provisional talk of the #7 one being in Banbury, Oxfordshire in July 2020

British Comic Swapmeet 28th September

Just a reminder that the 5th Swapmwet is being held this coming Saturday and Sunday in Watford. I know at least a couple of forum members will be there as well as a few artist and writer guests. It should be a great chance to fill gaps, start new collections and talk about our shared hobby! I’m not ...
