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...

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

I like this time of year - I saw my first kingfisher ever yesterday! :) - Phil R. I'm fortunate to cycle alongside a river to work every day. I THINK I've seen a kingfisher (a shot of blue on the river), and definitely seen a heron, a woodpecker and numerous small birds like tits and a wren! BTW Ph...

Re: What comics DIDN'T you buy today?

250 quid for the debut COR!!---this notion would have blown my mind had I known this, back in distant 1970! G-U-L-P! I threw all my old Cor!s on a bonfire along with Look-Ins..mind you I cut out the Noble Timeslip strips before doing so. WHY? Who thought UK comics would ever be of interest to anyon...

TV Century 21, but before The Saint and Tarzan were added and before Mike Noble left Captain Scarlet and obviously keeping Bellamy's Thunderbirds!

Re: Retro TV

For some reason I never watched 'Timeslip' when it was on TV either. If it was even half as weird as the comic strip version that Mike Noble drew for Look-in then I reckon we both missed out on something special! - Phil Rushton I had fond memories of watching it at the time and borrowed a friend's ...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I was in Harrogate for a short break and visited the PBFA Book fair . Spent nothing :cry: But in the second-hand bookshop in Harrogate (23a Commercial Street) found Thunderbirds Annual copyright 1966 (therefore Thunderbirds 1967 Annual !) with the Frank Bellamy cover - cost? £3 in near mint!!!

Artists from the war period - cartoons rather than comics

I realise that this is more 'cartoon' than 'comics' but I was recently asked by someone responding to one of my blogs about some artwork he owns and information on the artists themselves. Have a look at the blog entry and do let me know if you know anything, Thanks, Norman http://standby4action.file...

It's not UK comics (and apologies to Lew for the subject header!) but I'm sure a lot of people will love the fact that Robby Reed is back with his superb Dial B for Blog.

Re: Eaglemoss - Gerry Anderson vintage comic collection

The latest from Lee Sullivan (via Facebook) is he hasn't done any more covers beyond #5 and that "someone in Fanderson says they are considering re-launching in March". We'll wait and see....perhaps we'll be browsing this archive in 2020 and wondering why it didn't happen :D
