Re: Facilities for sharing photos

Incidentally, that's a super photo Jenni! Who knew that dinosaurs were so cute? :) (presumably eyelashes and mascara tend not to survive in the fossil record) Yes, hard to fossilise those elements :) This was in a super dinosaur museum in France, which had a great Quetzalcoatalus skeleton too among...

Or I had until the seller cancelled the sale and refunded after saying they hadn't charged enough.

Re: Facilities for sharing photos

A test to make sure I am not being too simplistic about recommending Flickr! Note that you do need to chosee the BBCode option on Flickr to upload onto this forum but then it works nicely: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4330/36126380012_dbb1ee4dbe.jpg Dinosaur museum at Esperaza by Jenni Scott , on ...

Re: Force of Evil

With regards to Thomsons and the British Library, you concur with what I was told back in the mid 1990s. The people I spoke to were very free in their praise of D C Thomsons always sending copies of their publications to the British Library. However, as we are talking about the National Library of ...

Great stuff! Can't read all the text on the scans - is she a permanent character or a one-off?

Sue Spiker and I believe the Secret Nurse are the same artist I believe and Jinty website nicknamed the artist Merry as he/she is not known https://jintycomic.wordpress.com/2014/07/07/unknown-artist-merry/ http://i1011.photobucket.com/albums/af240/Lnolan_01/spiker.jpg?t=1498211609 Agreed that Sue S...

Re: Joan and Billy in Wonderland

Never heard of it - but that 'hey kiddies, come up and see my etchings' type lead in to the story would be looked at pretty askance nowadays! As indeed it should, even within the story - the mysterious pilot has just up and left them in a pickle, without a word of explanation!

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Borrowed not bought - I spotted a recent-ish collection of X-Men in the library yesterday and borrowed it. Not very exciting, the glory days of me reading everything to do with the X-Men have long gone I fear! Oh well.

Re: Were British comics created solely for children?

(Edit: Link removed as it contained pop up adware.) I wonder just how widespread this kind of thing is. A few months ago I clicked on a link on comixminx's A Resource On Jinty site, and was sent straight to a porn site. I immediately alerted her to it in a PM. She was onto it like a rat up a drainp...

Re: Were British comics created solely for children?

There are certainly some letters in the pages of Jinty and suchlike which either refer to parents reading the comic, or even are from a parent who admitted to reading it. But that is not the same as it being targeted at them of course. At the same time, Steve MacManus talks in his book about needing...
