Re: Not just any old East London pie and mash shop

I wouldn't have thought, Steve, that pie, mash, and liquor covered with cold turkey would have been particularly tasty!!!!! Still, as my dad used to say, "There's no accounting for taste".

I have to agree with your last sentence, Steve, as most people would make a bad situation worse.

Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

I did watch that first episode of Enid Blyton's 'Malory Towers' series, Steve. The first title in her series was First Term At Malory Towers , which was published in 1946. As it is a long time since I last read that novel, or the series for that matter, I can't be sure how close yesterday's opening ...

Re: What comics DIDN'T you buy today?

The reason that the free gifts given with THE NEW HOTSPUR and THE HORNET did not appear in my 'FREE GIFTS IN THE BIG FIVE' . Steve, is because neither of those titles is one of THE BIG FIVE , which comprised ADVENTURE , THE ROVER , THE WIZARD , THE HOTSPUR and THE SKIPPER , all of which were essenti...

Re: Spellbound reprint

While this possible future reprint of SPELLBOUND is of some interest, Helen, and given that you seem to be looking forward to its publication, I'm wondering if there is any particular reason why you have not already bought the full run in its original printing as a weekly story paper, even if the co...

He just turned up one day at the ground of Redstoke United Football Club and told the manager that he was going to play inside-right for one of the two teams in a pre-season training session. His skills...

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...

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 ...
