I'm sorry, I've read that before...

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 ...

I need some very good help please...

I'm with the lady on this one. I scream and shout at my kids as their idea of time to do homework is usually when I yell bed-time! :lol:

Too big a subject to answer in 50 words or less. It takes me about 5 pages before I even get warmed up! 8)

American phrases in British comics?!?

Have to agree that many of our comics got very dated very fast. Picked up a batch of 1980 Hotspurs and I cringe at how dated some of the stories are now. Some examples rise above dating such as Flying Fury and V for Vengeance. Also picked up a few late 80's Victors and as much as I enjoyed them, it ...

Back Issues.

As car-boot season opens here in Wiltshire, I managed to pick up a few nice deals such as Beezer 1967, Dennis The Menace 1970, Sparky 1976, Star trek 1974 and Topper 1966. :lol: All for a quid each. I was impressed. The 1976 Sparky had a very nice surprise. It has 3 double page features of glorious ...

Does anyone know what happened to Jim Watson?

http://www.2000adonline.com/?zone=thrill&page=profiles&choice=COLONY Tony, the above link is the only mention of Jim Watson that I can find on the 2000AD website. With regards to the Falklands War story in Battle, I vaguely remember reading one episode in the mid 80's as I waited for a dental appoin...

ACTION; THE STORY OF A VIOLENT COMIC

Hi folks, I know that this an old thread, but, what the hey! I bought my copy of this book off Ebay for 37 quid and was quite impressed as I had seen copies going for 80 quid plus! :shock: To me, it is an essential piece of comic history, illustrating the demise of probably one of most genre definin...

Is Look-In a comic or a magazine?

I would define my reading period of Look-In as the mid 70's to early 80's. So that would make it worthy of being given it's own thread/title as during that period, it was a comic with the odd article. But as on this board, we would mainly be discussing the artists and writers of Look-In, would it be...
