Re: British / American Comics in China

If you find any Commando or War ones, I will happily buy a couple off you just for the sake of being able to have some in the collection.

Re: Character First Appearance?

I want to say she has been in Oor Wullie from the 1940s as I am sure that she appeared in the first Oor Wullie book. She was definitely in from the late 1970s / early 1980s but I can't say for certain if she was in any earlier. Hopefully Ray will be along soon and be able to answer.

Re: Hullo!

Welcome to the funhouse Werepuppy. I did think of going to the Rep to see the musical but unfortunately I had other demands on my wallet. I am not that far from you being in Fife myself and I can help you replace those issues as I have four boxes of Beano and Dandy issues in mint condition taking up...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I had a bit of luck a couple of weeks ago at the auctions and bought a load of ealry 2000ADs. I've got them all so I have managed to shift some of them through social media. I am already swapping 8 key issues for 480 Commandos! I also sold a small parcel of them and with the proceeds I bought 16 PL ...

Re: British comics reprinted in Europe

I think the first one is a Skid Solo story as that is definitely Sandy James' work who went on to draw so much of Johnny Cougar.

Re: Michael Portillo meets The Beano

Thanks for the heads up David. I have just watched it and laughed out loud when I saw that there was a tactical deployment of a bookmark to cover up a certain character on the Beano masthead.

Re: Your Favourite Time for Having Comics

Mine was Christmas mornings without fail. All of us would get an annual and the explosion of reading material in the house each year just could not be beaten.

Re: What comics do you read on a regular basis?

Still reading Commando regularly. I now find I am dipping into Rover and Wizard (both versions) on a more regular basis. Also, and I am still blaming Paw Broon for this (Only kidding Stephen :wink: You know I am thoroughly enjoying going down all those rabbit holes ) in the fact that I am now hip de...

More hardbacks! House of Hammer featuring all the comic strips from Dez Skinn’s 1970’s magazine. Plus The Dracula File from Scream. Then one softback - The Life of Charlie “Chas” Grigg - a great biography.
I have been eyeing up that biography. Is it good?
