Re: Latest Comic Highlight

I've been really happy with the Rebellion girls comics reprint news but even more so when I was asked to write the introduction to the Bella at the Bar book :) And also very happy with the reception of the Fleetway Files which has my article on girls comics in it. I feel like girls comics are reall...

Re: Latest Comic Highlight

That's excellent news Comixminx. Now all we need is for Rebellion to start a regular girls' comic with new material. It'd be fascinating to see a grown-up Bella with a daughter of her own, rather like the Spanish continuation of Patty's World. Yes, wouldn't that be cool! Bella could reminisce with ...

Re: Trying to find a proto-Bella story

Can I, in my turn, given that you do ask members for an awful lot of information, ask you why you want all this information? Presumably you do have some kind of end product in mind, otherwise there would appear to be no joined-up purpose to your queries. Are you planning to write a book or two? Sen...

Re: Favourite photo stories

I did get the issues out, Briony, but I have not so far been able to proceed to a summary. I have been very upset today as my best friend, Billy Nichols, died yesterday of heart failure in Arrowe Park Hospital in Birkenhead. Comics and the stories therein seem so very unimportant at this time. Oh d...

Not true, my kid reads (and re-reads) the annual at school because they have a copy in her classroom.

Re: Beano and Dandy fashion range.

John Freeman has posted about it on Down the Tubes - some of the items look rather fun, but I wonder what the price tag ££ is!

Time, Memory, Nostalgia' - and a number of people interested in different aspects of British comics seem to h...

It is indeed lovely stuff Phil, as you say. We shall have to try to ensure that his name is revived rather than forgotten!

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Bought the latest collection of Corpse Talk from the pages of the Phoenix - this one is called "Groundbreaking Women" and all the characters included are women. It's really excellent, I laughed out loud more than once.

Re: British comics in Egyptian magazine Samir

Roy Newby - post on the Jinty blog

Roy Newby only drew a couple of stories in Jinty, but what I wsn't aware of until I went and did the research was that he was a long-running and significant artist on girls comics. Blog post about him, with some art samples and some memories from his family, here: https://jintycomic.wordpress.com/20...
