Re: What comics did you buy today?

https://www.dictionary.com/browse/slubberdegullion Thank you, Adam, for the clarification. I'm considering buying a more comprehensive dictionary the next time I go to Truro. I can't remember the last time I went there. I've been living down here in Hayle for five months, and the longest distance I...

Re: When did The Happy Days End?

I do like Wilson's art, and it's fascinating to see how his style evolved over the years. Until a few months ago Phil Clarke had virtually ALL the Happy Days artwork for sale in a pile several feet high, but I seemed to be the only one who ever bought any. Now it's all been donated to a museum or u...

Re: Need help on Maisie's Magic Eye

Hello all, I'm currently working on an index of the translations of Maisie's Magic Eye by French publisher Arédit in their digest-sized comics. Thanks to a copy of the contract between Arédit and Graph-Lit (the agency which represented IPC in Europe), I know that Arédit bought all stories published...

Carlos Ezquerra RIP

Very sorry to see (via Twitter) that Carlos Ezquerra has just died. The snippet from the Sun that shows up on a google search says 'The co-creator of Judge Dredd has died in Spain at the age of 70 after a battle with lung cancer, it emerged today'. Alas!

Re: The Bubble Ballerinas

Thanks for that Tammyfan. Interesting story though it unfortunately seems to have one of those narratives of the fat person being ugly and mean and all the heroes are "pretty" girls The fat person is the villain though. By the way, the artist looks like Ron Smith. I don't think the fact that the fa...

By the way Goof, can you tell us a bit more about yourself? I see you have recently joined, and what a way to join the forum, with a potential resolution of a long-running question! Or maybe you are an old hand who has recently rejoined?

Re: A Clue to the Identity of "Merry"??

I agree that this could well be by 'Merry'! Of course my first thought was to hop over to Facebook and see what David Roach thought, and I saw there that you were ahead of me, Phil: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1686190221495309&set=a.123937014387312.23882.100003130436569&type=3 I really l...

Re: Long Hiatus

I'm just saying hello again, after a long hiatus - been over a year since I last wrote on this site, and wrote very little prior to that. This largely has been due to me being distracted by a horrendous 2016-17 including: The family firm I worked for was bought out (was well in profit - but one of ...
