Clancy And The Man! Not a bad story. Still reads well 20 odd years later! :lol:

black comic characters

I don't know. We had more than a few positive black comic characters over the years. Examples that spring to mind are: Harlem Heroes (2000AD) Ebony (Crunch) and a female as well! Blackjack (Action) Sgt Rayker (Warlord) Judge Giant and his son (2000AD) There are loads more but I just can't think of t...

UK comic book sales figures?

I have to agree with Lew, but his mutlipier is out! :lol: Average cost of pocket money crisps is about 35 pence (7/- to older peeps! :P ) Average cost of comic is ?1.80 or even more. So while it is good that kids have a big selection of comics (even though most are TV tie-ins) to buy, the difference...

News and what's happening

More! More! More! I can't wait to see where this comic takes us. European style artwork with a few dashes of classic Brit adventure thrown in. Does it get any better? :)

Yep, got it for youngest as she is mad keen on anything with Doctor Who. 100 pages for ?6 is a bit pricey, but then again, almost all the strips are new to us. :lol:

And what did you think of Bristol 2006?

Paul, just noticed you on that piccie! :lol: At least we will always have Bristol! :shock: Thanks for printing my email! It's only the second time that I have had anything printed in a comic! As I said earlier, I don't disagree with artists charging for their sketches. I was just a bit surprised, th...

And what did you think of Bristol 2006?

Lew, where were you? I looked for your table several times over! But, for the second year running, I missed you! :!: As to the charging, I can't really comdemn it per se as you guys are out there to make a living as much as anyone is, but it was a big shock to me as I had gotten used to going around...

And what did you think of Bristol 2006?

Now having travelled a few weary miles to get to Bristol 2006, I thought I would inflict my opinions on everybody else... :? Good points are: There was a lot of well-known artists there. Indie comics were very well-represented. Some of the comics were dirt-cheap! (300 QC comics for 15 quid!) Regular...

Bristol comics festival this weekend, anyone here going?

Karen and I will be there. We will be easy to spot as we will have the 4 year old, Iona, that will require a crowbar to get her away from the Dalek! :lol:

Looking forward to getting a few more sketches from the artists present, especially from John Burns. His Nikolai Dante is fantastic. 8)

Finding out who wrote what?

J T Edson wrote westerns by the score. I remember my dad reading them by the bagload. :lol: I was unaware that any of his stuff had been featured in any comic. Not a complete waste of a day when you learn something new. :)

Done that a few times myself! :lol: Picking up some Hornet's from the 60's two years ago and I am reading a fighter pilot story about Plt Off Starr who is the scourge of the Luftwaffe. A real cold-hearted devil. Then as I read the script and the plot uncovers itself, I started to think that this was...

Eagle Award

Garen, it is open to the masses for a vote. Disappointed that Rainbow Orchid didn't get a mention in the online comics, as the art is truly beautiful. But, I have found another two online comics to read! :lol: I also add my congrats to you Paul, as it is great to see your hard work critically reward...

Adam Eterno in Colour!

Shaqui, shame on you! :lol: It was first published in B&W and is featured on the Daily page at the moment! It is interesting to compare and contrast the two versions. Especially as this colouring job seems to have been done in a very sympathetic manner and adds to the art instead of detracting from ...
