Re: Launching on October 26th....

I noticed that. However, there was the suggestion that the newspaper was going to be free, paid by advertising. The Indy would then have been the first free quality paper, so would be a magnet for advertisers. I think they missed a trick. BTW, I also think that could be the future of a comic. Imagin...

Re: GRANDPA BROON WIDOWER

Marvel have long given up all attempts to age their characters. Instead they've just turned a blind eye to it, so all those 1960s/1970s/1980s stories now took place "a few years ago". Which I think is the best way. Comics are full of inaccuracies and odd nuances. For instance, would the Fantastic F...

Re: GRANDPA BROON WIDOWER

he says "sixty years, since your mother passed away" We have never seen his wife so she died before the strip began in 1936. But that was 70 years ago. I think it might be best if we just treat it as a comic strip. Otherwise we'd all be asking how Nick Fury could have fought in WWII and still be on...

Re: Spurs to finish in the top four.

Hicks and Gillet took the heat but Benitez was to blame. Look at the money the man has spent: Aquilani (£17M), Keane (£19M), Babel (£14M), Johnson (£19M for a RIGHT BACK!). Of course, he bought and sold a number of those, just like he bought and sold the likes of Peter Crouch, Bellamy and Pennan...

Re: HUMAN TARGET

I was never a fan of Christopher Chance in the 70s/80s, although I've heard good things about the TV series. The other one very much in that line from DC was Nemesis. Never a big fan of him either.

Guess I like my super-heroes super, as opposed to the jazzed-up spy.

Re: I flipping love Viz

Looks like I'll be spending a few months back in the UK, so I look forward to buying it again. Viz gets confiscated when I send issues by post to Egypt. I guess the Fat Slags or Danny and his Trannies are just a little too over the top :oops:

I think it's fabulous that Viz has been running for 200 years. I must admit, the time has just flown by :cheers:

Re: Star Lord Summer Special, 1978

Your tastes are pretty similar to mine (I even named my own comic as a nod to Starlord). I'm a big fan of Kampgruppe Falken from Warlord, Charley's War from Battle and The Angry Planet from Tornado. I've recently been pleasantly surprised by Bullet and The Crunch (hop over to DownTheTubes.net and yo...

Re: Classics to end next month

Or they could source out their material. That's what IPC did with their 2000AD graphic novels. Small profits were no use to a big company like theirs but to the fledgling Titan, they were ideal. Is there a market for a collected Grant Morrison's Starblazer? Definitely! A Billy the Cat TPB? I would h...

Strip Magazine

Just to let you know, Strip Comic is going to be reprinting Hook Jaw (now who else did that?) - this time re-lettered and re-coloured. They also have a variety of new strips from established comic creators. Nothing to do with me but it looks great! More what I'd look for in a boys adventure comic th...
