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...

I would do but I don't know how to upload a piccie from my PC to the site! :cry: How do I do it? The img button is great as long as your piccie is online but if it is not, then I end up looking like a bit of a biff! :?

Can anyone tell me who the regular artist was on this story? From his flowing style, it reminds me of Massimo Bellardini. And I notice that he also drew My Pet Gryphon for Bunty. Any clues? :cry:

Back Issues.

Guys, they were a very sweet buy as the seller had put both lots on Ebay with the Buy It Now option. After a swift battering of the calculator, I figured out that I could buy them and get someone a very nice birthday pressie. Got her the annuals for Mother's Day (still got 85 and 86 to pick up thoug...

Any hints and tips?

Now that I have got my scanner working and my PC more or less stable, can anyone give me some hints on how to most easily upload scans to the net? I currently use Picasa 2 and my bog-standard scanner to scan in pics. I end up taking about 10 mins per page to scan and upload it all, so an annual stor...

Tough of the Track characters

While this story does not feature either character, I thought that people might like to look at one of Alf's last adventures. This one comes from the 1993 Victor annual. :)
