Re: Need some help please

Hi Toff,

Are there any early Playhour weeklies (e.g. #138-140 from 1957) in your collection?

I am looking for Mickey Mouse Weekly No 752 for 9 October 1954. I do not need an actual copy, but a hi-res scan from the weekly feature “Something to Make” would be very helpful. Unfortunately I do not know which page, but it was part of the b/w editorial page at the end of the issue. Please send me...

Re: Ron Embleton in Rover, 1957

Thank you for sharing the first episode and the publication details. I had no idea the story was about Steve Larrabee. He starred in some older strips, from another publisher, as well. The only information I had came from the Embleton-biography by Wright & Ashford (BMC-216, 2002). I had to do with p...

Ron Embleton in Rover, 1957

Can anyone please share a page of 'The Trek of The Homeless Ones' with me and the rest of the world? This strip by Ron Embleton appeared in The Rover, No. 1659-1670, from 1957. I have never seen this, and I wonder what it is about. Any details (i.e. dates of issues) will be appreciated. Thanks ! John

Re: Ron Embleton and Wulf the Briton

Just the other day I found a scan of an original and very early page from Wulf the Briton by Embleton. It's on compalcomics.com, in their summer catalogue 2009. The description: "106. Wulf The Briton original artwork by Ron Embleton for Express Weekly 155 (1957) Wulf proves himself to the warrior tr...

More information on Express Weekly can be found in Norman Wright's highly recommended article about this comic in Book and Magazine Collector No. 67 (October, 1989).

Re: Money Fun comic by Denis Gifford..

Hi Peter, Is there anything by Basil Reynolds in no. 2? He revisited his old artwork: -"Skit, Skat and the Captain", which he drew for Mickey Mouse Weekly from the very first issue in 1936 (unfortunately I do not know when this b/w-series was terminated); -"Wonders of the wild" looks just like his w...

Re: Ron Embleton's first fully painted strip?

Hi Phil, I'm glad you like this early Embleton full colour artwork. There is more on the website of Look and Learn Magazine; e.g. search their Picture Library for Embleton 1956, and you'll find all the pages of Boy King Arthur . Repeat the search with Embleton 1957, and scans of the original artwork...
