Re: Beano annual reprints

In regards to 1963 can anyone advise if it has art by Leo Baxendale and Ken Reid in it? The 1963 annual, with the bash street kids on the cover, does have Ken Reid art in it. I don't think it has Baxendale though. Comparing it to the 1961 annual the Little Plum, Minnie and Bash Street Kids strips l...

High Noon at 19.55!

At roughly five to eight this evening it will be interesting to see whether anyone has an itchy trigger finger and goes for Beano No1 for £25,000 on the philcomics auction site. The historical ripeness of the moment, the Beano's 80th birthday, may encourage someone to throw caution to the wind and b...

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

Your bound volumes look absolutely beautiful Irmantas and you should be rightly proud of them but, for me, I have to say that I prefer comics in their 'natural' state. I have some bound volumes in my collection but they were bought to complete runs rather than for the love of the bound volumes thems...

Never Been Without A Beano.

Well here we are. It's 80 years ago today since the first issue of the Beano went on sale and I think it's a safe bet that there is not a single member of this forum who hasn't lived out there whole lives thus far in a world where the Beano didn't exist. By virtually any standards it would be hard t...

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

I would imagine that the record breaking starting price is an indication that the owner is in no real hurry to sell it and only wants to see whether anyone is willing to pay such a price at this very special moment in the Beano's history for such an excellent copy of the first issue. After all if it...

Hi judomole, I've now managed to check all the annuals you mentioned and it's not in any of them afraid.

Re: Owd Bob and Black Bob

I have just discovered the book Owd Bob by Alfred Ollivant and I am struck by the similarities with Black Bob. Does anyone here know if Owd Bob was an inspiration for our intrepid D C Thomson writers? And if so, would you care to enlighten the rest of us? Hi Col, Kelman Frost, who wrote all the ear...

Re: How many issues of Charley's War are there?

if you can get hold of a copy of 'The Fleetway companion' by Steve Holland you'll find it' ace at answering this sort of question Adam Cheers Richard, I hadn't thought of that and I'm pretty sure I have a copy! The Fleetway Companion says this about 'Charley's War' Battle 1) WWI 6/1/79-26/1/85 2) W...

Re: Big news for Ken Reid fans!

Just received my copies of the four Ken Ried art posters. They look absolutely great. I'm so glad that I paid the extra postage to have them sent separately. It would have been sacrilege to have had them sent folded.

Re: Trying to find Story from Bunty Annual

To come back to topic, has anyone come up with further possibilities as to what the story may be? Or is Goof’s suggestion still the only one we have? If the original enquirer is happy that the story from the Mandy Annual for 1971 is indeed the one they were thinking of and that they just misremembe...

Re: Trying to find Story from Bunty Annual

Kashgar, I'm looking for a Dennis the Menace story where he is punished by his dad in the last panel. It was somewhere between 1955 and 2005. Dennis wore a black and red jumper in it. :) I think I've found the one you mean, but then again..... If you think you've found the possibility, even if you ...

Re: Trying to find Story from Bunty Annual

It's not unusual that two people would remember the same story but it is slightly unusual that they apparently remembered it, wrongly, in the same way i.e. it being set in Victorian times. Mind you memory is a funny thing. I've been trying to track down a British B movie I saw over fifty years ago w...
