Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

Good to hear from you Derek, glad you are more settled in! I have been very frantic at work recently, and concentrating on other things, so have only just seen this.

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...

Re: The most evil girls in girls’ comics

Good list. No immediate additions from me, I'll try to see if any others come up if I think further.

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

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...

Pingu Illustrator Tony Wolf Dies, Age 88

The illustrator Antonio Lupatelli, who under the pseudonym Tony Wolf drew the much-loved penguin Pingu in a series of books, has died at age 88. The Newsweek article linked to below says that 'His long, prolific career saw him illustrating children's books and comics for European publishers, among t...

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 ...

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...
