Re: What Christmas Comics Have You Bought Recently?

Bought the Dandy Annual for my eldest. She's read a bunch of them at school so she should like it. No creator credits though! Shocking in this day and age (tho of course it is DC Thomson's, so that's as expected from them).

Re: Maria Dembilio

scanned stories by Maria Dembilio 'Scanned Stories' implies more than one episode of more than one story. I would be able to translate them into Spanish but not until I get back from Cornwall in early January. I leave here in ten minutes. I wouldn't worry about it until / unless del Amor comes back...

Re: Not just any old Amazon delivery rep.

Well I can certainly apologise for posting in a hurry and putting in insufficient words to make myself clear - and then not looking back for a while, which obviously made things worse! Apology accepted with good grace. I would also hope that you would take our previous positive interactions into ac...

Re: Not just any old Amazon delivery rep.

Oh blimey to this entire thread! 24 hours later but no apology so far from comixminx, I notice. :o :? :shock: Apology from me, Phoenix? What for?! I was sympathizing with all those hard-done by on the delivery front! Obviously not very clearly but still. Perhaps I should have added some appropriate...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I got into a conversation on Facebook with someone whose mother has got 68 copies of Sandie comic - the very ones kept from her youth, as *her* mother (the grandmother of the woman I've been in communication with) stored the comics for all those years since then! The family in question wanted to sel...

Re: Maria Dembilio

Oh thank you! I will send it on. I'm not really sure whether he wants more or not - given that he would have to translate it all, if I send him much more then it would take quite a long time for him to get through, so I think I will send him this episode first and see what he says (and hopefully tha...

Maria Dembilio

I have had a request from a Spanish contact as to whether I could supply any scanned stories by Maria Dembilio. The contact in question (Jose Ruiz del Amor) is in contact with the artist and would like to be able to translate one of her works and send it on to her as she is still around to enjoy it....

Re: Beano to get CGI revamp for YouTube generation

Both of you, how old are your kids? They're obviously aiming at a pretty young target audience. My youngest, who I mentioned above, is 5 and eldest is 7. They've both recently started watching CBBC more than Cbeebies, but probably my youngest is doing that because he's led by my eldest. I would sus...

Good going for the Phoenix! By which I mean in this case David Fickling and co in Oxford rather than our own Phoenix :-)

Never a truer word spoken.

Re: Spanish artists working in the IPC/Fleetway stable.

One quick point to make (thanks to David Roach for the info) is that the Spanish artists weren't actually doing it on the cheap, though that was the impression that British creators got at points. The Spanish artists were brought in to fill demand because the number of pages that had to be drawn eve...

Re: 300 issues strong

Yes, good old The Phoenix - it has kept going, is full of great stuff, and has built up a loyal audience. And pays its contributors reasonably, though not along the lines of the riches that the big name creators of the comics glory days were paid by the sound of it... The fact they do book reprints ...
