Re: Boloney Book Rover Comic Free Gift

'The Gold Star Broadway Boloney Book' was given away in issue 697 of the ROVER (August 24 1935). It was attached to 'The Gold Star Broadway Book - Marvels Of Land, Sea And Air', the latter vertically above the former, so you needed scissors to separate them. Two more Broadway Books were issued the f...

These were they:- Tara's Terrible Twin (first instalment) The Girl Next Door Before The Boat Comes In The Double Life Of Coppelia Brown Mary Had A Little Pig... (first instalment) The Champion...

Re: Mandy free gift

The 'Lucky Black Cat Brooch' was a free gift in MANDY 824 (October 30 1982). The following week TRACY 162 [November 6 1982] gave away a 'Lucky Dog Brooch'. A full-page advert for both appeared in MANDY 823 (October 23 1982) [came out on a Thursday] and TRACY 161 (October 30 1982) [came out on a Satu...

Re: What comics do you read on a regular basis?

Currently it’s the Red Dagger series which will be followed by the Dan Dare Hawk books but that could be interrupted depending on what Santa brings! After you have finished reading the 30 issues in the RED DAGGER series, Adam, you might consider reading the 30 issues of LUCKY CHARM , the equivalent...

Re: What Christmas Comics Have You Bought Recently?

Will was a man of his word, as always. The nine issues of JUDY and the seven issues of MANDY arrived from 30th Century Comics just after I had got back home from my pre-lunch pint in the White Hart, which was quite handy given that I had to sign for the parcel. I haven't yet removed them from their ...

I'm puzzled, Col, as to why you don't know the answer to the question you've just asked.

Re: Hi all

I have a reasonable number of issues of SHOOT , all in mint condition, as far as I can see. I bought them all on the week they came out. The run is from September 9th 1978 to May 3rd 1980, at which point there was a five-week strike. My run continues from June 28th 1980 to July 11th 1981 and from Ju...

What wit, Kashgar? I have looked carefully at Steve's post without detecting any wit whatsoever.

Re: British Comic Swapmeet 28th September

Kudos to Bruce Scott for organising a gret day out and thanks to Steve "Action Man" MacManus", Mike Dorey, Alan Hebden and James Nicholas for being kind enough to give up of their time and let us fanboy all over him. I'm sure that there is no such thing as a 'gret day', Col, nor a verb 'to fanboy'....

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I didn't say I was any good, Steve. I can see the correct shots but quite a lot goes wrong from that point. Russ is a reasonable player and Alex is definitely learning steadily, but doesn't yet take the game seriously.
