Re: American Comics?

Is it worth, in order to have the widest possible appeal, a section after Beano on US Marvel (and any UK reprints), another section on US DC and keep the section on World Comics as is. If these were more prominent in the comic titles section it may help? Only a thought as a casual visitor may not sc...

Guardians of the Galaxy film

I loved this film. Has anyone else enjoyed it? Though from the US comic characters, I was reading about Star Lord in Future Tense (1980) and Rocket Raccoon was a guest in Hulk back in the day. Also back in those days the Guardians of the Galaxy was a failed short-run 1970’s title. Peter Quill and th...

Re: Is this forum turning its toes up?

I love this forum. Over the last 7 years I've not posted too much but enjoy reading others thoughts and views. Of course people must have work and other things to do, and being August there are people on holiday. Save our forum – can I suggest more posts about current UK magazines from the BBC (+ ot...

Re: 2000AD or Starlord?

USA 'Star Lord*' from the new Guardians of the Galaxy film, also appeared in another UK Marvel weekly 'Future Tense' 1980-1982. A surprisingly long-lived reprint title for Marvel's Sci-fi strips, along with Star Trek, Micronauts and others.

*Not to be confused with the UK IPC weekly :)

Re: Concept art from my new superhero comic

You have talent Michael. Your concept would work well with 2000a.d. or as a UK graphic novel.

Very best of luck

Re: Cor!! No.1 sells for £659

Condition (and original gifts) does play a key part in the valuation/ebay sale price. Obviously listing in UK comics section (and not Toys and Games) is vital too. In the '80's I bought Prog 2 of 2000a.d. in the Westminster Comic Mart for 90p – however it looked as though 2 dogs had played tug-of-wa...

Re: Comic Pet Hates

Thanks David. My younger brother had every single issue of IPC's Jackpot 1979-82– which I loved at the time. However after issue 100, too many reprints popped up including the 'Invisible Monster' from Monster Fun and many others. I loved the Invisible Monster when I first read some back issues from ...

Re: Comic Pet Hates

One of the things I found annoying in the early 1980's were that some IPC reprints could seem so dated – not all mind, just some. You could tell they weren't up-to-date usually. I loved the reprints of Ginger in Buster – one of my all time favourites (and I think it made it's way into the top 100 IP...

Re: Tammy's last issue

Thanks for the Pam of Pond Hill details. Maybe the end of this story arc is in one of the Girl issues too Tammyfan - we can but hope. Or perhaps the Tammy Annual 1985 (printed late summer 1984??) Sometimes with IPC, you find a few story's that didn't make the merger(s) are in Annuals or Summer Speci...

Re: collecting

Thanks Phoenix. I'll suggest it. Good idea/plan. If you go to her house she is a neat freak. My brother has to keep his hoard of childhood stuff at Dad's.
My nephews bedrooms though are not so fastidious, but the rest of the house is devoid of photos or boxes - don't tell her I told you though.

Re: collecting

I've been buying a comic each week for 2 nephews (1 each). However my sister-in-law wants to recycle the lot and not even tell the nephews!

Maybe there are other mum's out there that are too keen on de-cluttering? Shame on you mums if you are!

Tammy story - The Button Box

'The Button Box' was a popular usually 1 issue long story in Tammy, in the last few years. Interestingly the protagonist was in a wheelchair and had a collection of buttons. All this talk of the final Tammy in another topic had me thinking, "What are everyone's favourite Button Box story's?" Mine wa...

Re: Tammy's last issue

Thanks Tammyfan. I think the last 3 or 4 pages were printed soon after it merged with Girl comic in 1984 - though after 30-years, I cannot remember if it was the first merged issue or another later one with a by-the-way this is the final part. Sadly my sister recycled these as well, along with 'Prin...
