Comics - What is Your Favourite Moment or Memory?

Though my love for comics is still strong and I still get a fair few regularly (see avatar), you can never beat the enjoyment you had as a kid. Now do you have a specific memory that encapsulates your love of comics? One fond memory is in late 60s & early 70s when I would wait impatiently every Satu...

Re: What Christmas Comics Have You Bought Recently?

Brilliant, gentlemen. I bought a complete year of Battle Picture Weekly s (1976), a complete year of Hotspur s (1978) and a complete year of Valiant s. All of which just arrived. Not exactly Christmas presents but will be a nice read over the holidays. On a more Christmas vein; yesterday I bought an...

Re: If you could bring back 1 UK Comic which 1 would it be?

And if I am greedy, from DCT's arsenal, a mini- Victor or Hotspur in the same style/format as Commando featuring all of DCT's classic characters. And who says miracles can never happen? Not a separate title but near enough. Have even started a special Commando collection featuring DCT's classic cha...

Re: Commando featuring Characters from the DCT Archives

There is a hint on that on the inside front cover of the second Braddock story, to look out in December. Whether it's Ramsey's Raiders, Union Jack Jackson or something else altogether it doesn't say. Been confirmed it's Union Jack Jackson on 12th December. It came through the post today. :up:

Re: What Christmas Comics Have You Bought Recently?

Got my first comic of the year - Beano No. 4014.

A good festive read and I bought a second copy so that my partner's grandkids could read it (and have a set of gifts each).

Re: Commando featuring Characters from the DCT Archives

Well in the last couple of weeks, I got the second Warlord story. Good 'un again.

Plus another Braddock (Demons) story.

Commando is certainly spoiling us for stories from the archives. :cheers:

Commando featuring Characters from the DCT Archives

Well, it has definitely been lucky with Commando in the last few months.

Not only two Warlord stories but a Braddock one too.

Thanks, Commando and DCT. :up:

Re: Commando Announcement

Well my latest sub came through the door today and even though I was never a Peter Flint fan back in the 70s, I loved the Warlord story - a mixture of war and James Bond. Looking forward to reading other stories featuring not just Flint but other classic characters. Still would be great if DCT prod...

Re: RELUCTANTLY SELLING COLLECTION

I am sorry to hear too, Bri. I know how much important our collections are to us Collectors.

It you do have time, it would be great if you could list what collections you have here so that we can see what to look for on eBay?
