That is good! How old is she, remind me?

They were actually called The Frightening Fours, Jenni, and I agree with you that it was a fine, and very unusual story.
Thanks for the correction - I wrote my comment quickly without checking :)

Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

My knowledge of DCT titles and stories is rather lacking, so I can't really come up with my own list very well. The story about the Frightful Fours was rather good, I remember from earlier posts on this forum; and likewise I would put in votes for Wendy at War and for the White Mouse, but really onl...

Christine Ellingham - artist on Concrete Surfer, now found!

Some of you may already have seen this on my Facebook or on the Jinty blog (but probably not the latter, as it was just done as comments on old posts and not visible in recent entries as yet). Exciting news - the previously-unknown artist of a number of lovely Jinty strips and covers has written in ...

Re: Reprints from Tammy and Jinty are on their way this summ

So happy I finally get to read Human Zoo & Land of No tears, Huge credit to Rebellion. Also hope they release Robot who Cried, Forbidden Garden and Girl in a Bubble which all sound good. Can anyone say if they are worth reprinting. If you want to read a sample episode and a summary of these, you ca...

Re: Full 2018 schedule for Treasury of British Comics

Also I am thinking that I will buy some of the Treasury items for my kids' school library, to give other kids a chance to enjoy them too. I would suggest, Jenni, that you raise your generous offer with both the head and the librarian before shelling out any of your hard-earned, as it is perfectly p...

Re: Full 2018 schedule for Treasury of British Comics

Charlet's War is good - I've read some of it but we stalled on buying the hardback glossy reprints. If the newer editions are nice and thick and not too dear then we might get ourselves a complete run for this household via that. Also I am thinking that I will buy some of the Treasury items for my k...

Re: Comics on TV

My partner thinks it was one figure rather than various, and apparently because the Victorian needlewomen were working from a facsimile provided by the South Kensington Museum, which had already been bowdlerised. So, yes and no, but you’re right: not an absolutely exact facsimile it’s true!

Re: Comics on TV

Seeing the real tapestry would be awesome of course, but there is an excellent copy that can be seen in the Reading Museum - same size, everything reproduced amazingly precisely by a team of Victorian needlewomen. Well worth seeing in its own right.

Re: Query about a story with 13 girls

I'm going for Hernandez myself. Thanks so much for the scan, it was great to see it again! It's rather a good ending, with the alien still having human feelings but being bound for the stars and a greater destiny.

Re: Query about a story with 13 girls

I read that story when it came out - it is quite memorable. Nicely drawn too. Can you identify the artist, helsbels?

Re: What small press comic did you buy today?

Bought a few comics from Bevis Musson via Twitter - The Disreputable Dead Queen Detectives & spinoffs including a colouring book. Has gone down very well with my two Horrible Histories-loving kids as it is in very much the same sort of vein. I've enjoyed them too :-)

Re: What comics or comic related Christmas presents did you

I bought my partner a copy of Darryl Cunningham's Graphic Science and have read three of the seven tales about scientists myself as he's finished it now. Recommended. I also got an interesting looking graphic novel called something like 'We did our best' about a Vietnamese refugee / immigrant family...

Re: What Christmas Comics Have You Bought Recently?

But Lew, why don't DCT publish a contents page with creator names? That's what I mean really. Or print the names on the strips themselves in a credit box. Not everyone will even notice signatures (unless on the umpteenth read through).
