Re: Got a few pennies Guv'nor?

I'd love really cheap (like 10p/issue cheap) copies of all those tens of thousands of comics I missed. I'm not sure whether tolworthy is presenting an accurate statement here of what he would consider to be a purchasing opportunity that he couldn't possibly turn down, or whether he is guilty of exa...

Re: Rover Book but what year is it?

Good stories inside too, well if the one i have read is anything to go on. Some bandits in the wild west kidnap a sherrif's son, hide on top of a mountain and cut off a town's water supply until the ransom is paid. I don't know the annual story you refer to felneymike, but the inspiration for it al...

Re: Neigh, Neigh and thrice Neigh!

I have been aware of the existence of this great race since Russian Hero won it in 1949, and I can assure Kashgar that at no time since then would the race have been won by a cart-horse, a jolly gee-gee, a Don Key, a haybag of a nag or even Arthur Askey. I've just opened my study window and in the q...

Re: Who was Melody Lee?

She was the main character in the BUNTY serial 'Melody Lee - a dancer she'll be!'. The story started in issue 1030 (Oct. 8 1977) and ended in 1067 (Jun. 24 1978). It ran for more than eight months, a highly unusual event in any Thomson girls' paper.
