Benita Brown (writer) RIP

Yesterday I did some more searching for contact details for Benita Brown, credited writer on Tammy's "Tommorrow Town" and known to have also written for Jinty. I found a blog of hers from a few years ago with an interesting post, and then almost immediately afterwards found an online newspaper artic...

Re: Miguel Quesada

I have been scanning a number of pages from "A Dream for Yvonne" that Quesada drew for Jinty. Can anyone else supply scans of other Quesada stories, perhaps just an episode of each?

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I bought an eBay issue of Jinty I had been missing - not a particularly early one, one from 1980. Imagine my surprise and indeed horror when I received the envelope - it had been crammed into an A4 envelope despite being about an inch too wide for that! The seller had actually gone to the extent of ...

Re: Anyone able to help with reading version of Moonchild?

Moon child was indeed reprinted in 1983 Misty annual. I thought I had definitively clarified that issue this morning, Tammyfan, by reproducing accurate information provided by Phil in 2009. Are we now to accept that Moonchild is formed of two separate words? I suspect that Tammyfan may simply have ...

Perhaps this could help her? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MISTY-SPELLBOUND-UK-COMIC-ON-DVD-ROM-/151826663748?hash=item2359930944 Blimey Marck! That's a bargain in terms of reading volume for the ££.

Hannah E thinks it was in the 1983 annual, not that she has that either, and nor do 30th Century Comics.

Anyone able to help with reading version of Moonchild?

Hi folks - graphic novelist Hannah Eaton is writing a talk to be given in mid-November, in which she aims to draw on the Misty story Moonchild amongst others. Thing is that she doesn't currently have a copy of the story and doesn't want to only rely on her memory. Does anyone have scans of this at a...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I bought a Fables collection from our local new comics shop - I'm behind on catching up with Fables, which I think has now just finished the complete storyline. And in the background I can hear my partner reading old Phoenix stories to our 5 year old - she has gone back to some old issues because we...

Re: Hello, I'm WaxBadger

Welcome, WaxBadger! You're right, a lot of people treat children's literature as being quite separate from comics, even when they may be clearly comics when you look at them properly. For instance "In The Night Kitchen" by Maurice Sendak is clearly influenced by Little Nemo; Tintin is often not cate...
