Re: Dandy Relaunch THIS WEDNESDAY!!!

As you may be aware, I'm not a huge fan of humour comics, especially DCT's output. But I bought the Dandy today to give it a go. Stand back! I thought it was puerile, infantile humour only fit for a 7 year-old. Pretty spot on then! Okay, I'm not likely to buy many more (kinda outgrown those comics) ...

Re: FOOTBALL SEASON 2010/11

I don't really agree about the Boro/Scotland thing. McManus and Robson have been two of Boro's best players. Thomson and Flood - inbetween their many injuries - have also done well. In my blog http://www.bigsoccer.com/forum/blog.php?u=138316 , I spoke about the folly of playing both McDonald and Boy...

Re: Spurs to finish in the top four.

Hilarious. Although Gomes is just as to blame. Play to the whistle.

Apparently, purse-held hearing aids were the cutting-edge technology of the day...the mobile phone-phenomenon of it's age.

Re: Tim Traveler captured on film

Masks? Do you mean 'masts'? Let's assume it's real (not that I'm saying it is). Man (or woman in this case) has finally conquered time. But is no further forward with mobile phones as they still need huge masts all over the country? It's a bit like medieval man ridiculing a car because you'd never f...

Re: Dandy Relaunch THIS WEDNESDAY!!!

Just seen this comment over at Down The Tubes from Steve English
"As a child I was more a fan of the IPC comics than DC Thomson, and this reminds me more of KRAZY than anyhing DCT used to put out."

Re: Dandy Relaunch THIS WEDNESDAY!!!

The Dandy hasn't quite made it to the shores of Cairo yet (surprising eh?) but if it's anything like Oink*, I'll pick it up when I move back next month. Nice to see a genuine comic launch. *although, unlike Oink, I don't suppose any of the Fall will be contributing for the Dandy (but I'd love to see...

Even though I enjoy Top Gear, Clarkson is a complete :censored: I really wouldn't want kids to aspire to someone like that. The irony present throughout Top Gear (a bunch of sad old blokes talking about 'what's cool' for instance) will be completely lost on kids, whereas the nasty bullying selfish e...

Re: GRANDPA BROON WIDOWER

Really? Wow! I always thought my version of 'Tin-Can Tommy, the Robotical Man' was the first http://superherostore.150m.com/Nimrod/ - (just to add, he's a more innocent/very British version of Iron Man from the WW2 era).

Re: Launching on October 26th....

What exactly is Digifiend right about? If you mean that the Indy will struggle to be there, well, I can agree with that. If you mean that people will be deciding on the Daily Star or 'i' on the basis of cost - I think not. And I don't know what the Beano has to do with anything? I never mentioned an...

Re: Launching on October 26th....

At just 20p a copy, it may succeed. I still prefer reading newspapers compared to getting info online. That's why I mentioned The Sun and Daily Star, which at 25p and 20p respectively, already have the advantage. i is about three years too late, I reckon. :lol: that's like asking why is the Dandy l...
