Re: The Daily Page

Let's not put the mockers on things now,folks. That's how the Scream and Misty sites got closed down with lawsuits a-threatening.. The Misty site has run into problems, I believe, not only due to copyright problems (full reprints of comics), but due to the fact that Misty wanted to print a fanzine ...

Starhawk

Sol Rynn was one of the better SF characters to come out of the DCT stable. It was grittier than the usual fare and did pay more than a passing homage to Hans Solo. I remember that the dialogue between Sol and the robot was humourous and quite bitchy at times which helped to make it more up to date ...

www.sevenpennynightmare.co.uk

Has anyone else but me read these excellent scans of the first 13 issues of Action? I have just finished reading these and have realised what a fantastic comic this was. :) Obviously years ahead of it's time and would have been put on the 'For Mature Readers' list if it had come out in the late 80's...

Did you see the Alan Moore interview last night?

Al,
really enjoyed the link. 8) It was just so cool to listen to one of the current greats talking about his output. Definitely added to my clips on the PC!

IPC Fleetway or DC Thomson?

Loved the IPC stuff, Action, Battle, etc but still read Commandos with a passion so that tipped it for me.

Welcome to the new Forums.

Al,
switching over to the new forum is great. No longer do we have to search through multiple pages to get to the thread that we seek! And no thread ever dies! What could be better? Great work Batman! :lol:

Not forgetting Transvision Vamp's 'Waiting for Halo Jones'. Loved Wendy James' voice. :P

Meant to have a go at this before I left, but try this for a mix. Cover and page 32 True story as done by Jack Glass.

Re: Fleetway issue Numbers

Oh my God! Why do we want to know this? Isn't life just a teensy bit tooooooooooooo short? Kev, we all have had our 'sadness' quotient permanently switched to off since we admitted to being comic collectors! :lol: But I digress, many of the IPC/Fleetway/Amalgamated Press comics must have skipped a ...

QUESTION RED/ORANGE SPHERE WITH MAD PROFESSOR INSIDE.

Also sounds like the Crimson Crusher which was printed in the Hotspur in 1979. Another reprint by DCT with a different artist in order to make a story look 'new'. The bit that bugs me the most is that the style looks like Tony O'Donnell, but is too early by about 5 years. Anybody that can contradict...

Any new Ebay buys recently?

I got lucky and got 97 issues of Misty for only ?166 on Ebay. I am so glad that my Mrs is a comics fan otherwise I would have a hard time explaining why I had spent so much on comics. It does help that Misty is the one comic that she loves above all others. Plus, I will get to read them after she ha...

Is anyone still reading 2000AD?

Like Pensky, I still read the Megazine. I found that I couldn't justify paying for 2000AD as it only had two stories that I would read and I still had to buy other luxuries like shoes for the kids! :? I dip in and out of it on an irregualr basis, but as it has been over 6 years since I got Tooth on ...
