Re: British Comic Swapmeet 28th September

For any one interested, March 2020 will be in Glasgow. Swapmeet 5 means that I now only need four issues to complete my run of Commando to date. The lowest issue is 370 and the highest is 4193.

Re: British Comic Swapmeet 28th September

Well it was a grand day out. Spent ages chatting with one and all. It was so nice to actually meet some of the people I have been chatting to over the years through social media and over the phone. Kudos to Bruce Scott for organising a gret day out and thanks to Steve "Action Man" MacManus", Mike Do...

Re: British Comic Swapmeet 28th September

Twelve tables have gone already, but Bruce will be able to sneak another one in. Guests are Steve MacManus, Alan Hebden, James Nicholas (son of Barrie Tomlinson and a writer to boot) and Mike Dorey.

Come along for a good old chinwag, a nice brew and loads of British comics for sale/swapping.

Re: What comics did you buy today?

An extra copy of Commando 5255, Beano 4000 and 12 below the line issues of Combat Picture Library. Some are so early they have the GMS mastheads instead of the Micron masthead.

Re: RIP Nigel Dobbyn

This has really shocked me. I was lucky enough to meet Nigel at Moniaive and he was lovely to chat with and he was happy to pass on his knowledge with a comics narrative seminar that he did for the attendees. I basked in his praise at my understanding of how the picture can drive forward the narrati...

Re: "A pony tale" in Suzy

Congratulations on your first post. And it's an interesting question to ask as pony comics are not something I am very knowledgeable about. Would you like to give us some more information on them?

Re: Commando Announcement

Well my latest sub came through the door today and even though I was never a Peter Flint fan back in the 70s, I loved the Warlord story - a mixture of war and James Bond. Looking forward to reading other stories featuring not just Flint but other classic characters. Still would be great if DCT prod...

Re: Ramsey's Raiders

In Smiths today with the normal Commandos there was a special larger sized issue called Ramsey's Raiders with two colour reprints inside. It was £14.99. The words 'off' and 'rip' come to mind, Steve, but not necessarily in that order. I take it you won't be buying the Rebellion version which has on...

Re: CLZ comic app

A couple of collectors that I know have it and swear by it. However, one is a major US comics collector. The other is a mix of UK and US and says that you can add to it for other users to use the information.

Both have collections over the 15k mark.
