Re: In contact with Pete Wrobel, union member IPC 1977-1992

I have had some very interesting information back from PW, clarifying the union activities and industrial action during his time at IPC. I also asked for his comment on the question raised in this thread because why not ask about that while I was at it? I know the thread does say the mystery is solv...

Re: Dr Mel Gibson's "Remembered Reading": book abt girls com

Where can you get that book? All info I seem to find is the University web and is going to cost me 40 pounds the book and around the same to be shipped to Ireland :S I got a review copy I'm afraid. Do you have a local library that you can ask to order it for you? Or a local university campus booksh...

Dr Mel Gibson, "Remembered Reading"

Just to say that I have written a review of this very readable and interesting academic book about British girls' comics, and posted it to the Jinty blog. https://jintycomic.wordpress.com/2015/08/13/remembered-reading-by-mel-gibson-book-review/ It's a great book, well worth the read. I don't know ho...

Just to say that I have written a review of this book now and posted it to the Jinty blog. https://jintycomic.wordpress.com/2015/08/13/remembered-reading-by-mel-gibson-book-review/ I will also post a link to it in the Reference section of the forum in case someone goes straight there in the future. ...

Re: help identifying artist

I'm not sure of the others but the first one is "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" (Jinty 1978-79), written by Alison Christie.

Re: help identifying artist

I have classified all the stories from IPC that appeared in the Spanish magazines. As I don't know the names in English of many, I could put here some images and the titles and artists (have them all more or less located) if you want them. It could interest as well to other members artist wise or t...

Thanks, I've added it to the list of translations into Spanish on the Jinty blog. They must have translated it pretty much at the same time as the original publication, as the story ran until early 1979!

The second one is Terry Aspin: that's a reprint of 'The Girl Who Never Was' from Jinty.

In contact with Pete Wrobel, union member IPC 1977-1992

Just to say that I have contacted the NUJ to try to get some historical information on the strikes that had such a big impact on IPC in and around the 70s. The person from the NUJ who has written back to me is someone called Pete Wrobel, who worked on Look and Learn . He was the the union rep of wha...

Re: Cataloguing Comics

I am on a Mac at home and use Delicious Library . It's quite easy to add new items and there is some structure to the records. The thing I found particularly nice about it was the ability to add a cover image, which would be much more of a pain in Excel. Having said that, I doubt you'd want to bothe...

Re: Dr Mel Gibson's "Remembered Reading": book abt girls com

I'll certainly be buying this. I met Mel recently at Pete Hansen's when we were discussing the best way to archive and display Pete's collection. Mel's dad was a real US comics fan and Mel grew up on a diet of DC rather than DC Thomson and if I remember correctly her favourite comic hero was the Fl...

Re: SALLY - 1969 - 1971

Came across my first Sally Comic the other day it's quite a Progressive girls comic for it's day with some really good strips, not the Horsey/ballerina type stories you expected to see in Girls Comics at the time. Looking at the family tree I see it only ran for 21 months before merging with Tammy....

Re: Dr Mel Gibson's "Remembered Reading": book abt girls com

This book is on my "to buy" list. Either that or drop hints for my birthday and the event at the end of the year that I am not mentioning in August. How does the book compare to other reference books? And let us know if it is a good read once you want to report back to us. So far I am gripped by it...
