Re: Is eBay getting worse

Interesting discussion. I have been a buyer since about 1999 (current profile says 2001) and sold a few bits and bobs over the years. I have only had a few parcels "go missing" and claimed the value (both as a buyer and seller), got the Post Office money and not felt it's a growing problem. It's cer...

Re: cover artist

Funnily enough the first thing that cover reminded me of wasn't actually a comic cover but the Dorothy McGuire film The Spiral Staircase. Although an image of scared girl dressed in nightie coming down spooky staircase holding a candle waiting for handsome man to save her must have been used umptee...

Re: cover artist NEW ONE NON-UK

Sorry this is a non-UK question but I suspect a lot of people here read DC comics in the Seventies and I've trawled Nick Cardy, Jeff Jones and Neal Adams covers for DC during that period and can't for the life of me think what this German cover reminds me of. Anyone any clue? http://standby4action.f...

Re: If you could bring back 1 UK Comic which 1 would it be?

Talking of Whizzer and Chips, may I ask a favour? A friend was telling me he had a letter published in the early run of Whizzer and Chips in which he wrote about the quantity of exclamation marks that appeared in a previous issue or story! <<< (had to do that!) His name is Michael Jack. I'd be grate...

Re: Doctor Who Influences

I wonder what Norman's opinion of this tiny, unsigned 1956 illustration from Lilliput no.229 is? Personally I'm in two minds, but there are enough similarities to Frank Bellamy's style (particularly the nearside boot and leg) to make me think that he could have drawn it. Beyond that I can't think o...

Re: The Art of Diving - a new(ish) blog

Sorry about the sizing Al. I thought I'd cracked THAT problem! Could someone be kind enough to tell me if there are parameters to use when linking to an image online --with a resize parameter. Everything I just read on the Net does not work here! I could have course host an image at the 'optimum' si...

Re: The Art of Diving - a new(ish) blog

Glad to see such a specialised blog up and running again. I remember finding stuff I thought you'd like but couldn't make contact, so now I can! I previously had a blog called the Art of Diving on the website of the dive school where I did some teaching. That blog no longer exists but I've created a...

Re: Are you a collector, or just a fan?

The original Marney strip was drawn for Buster by John Stokes, but as yet I haven't been able to discover who was responsible for the colour version that appeared in Sunny - in spite of the fact that I own a page of original art from it! - Phil Rushton Thanks anyway Phil. Are we atlking about Sunny...
