Help - 1920s 'The Popular' from Amalgamated Press

Image


Does anyone know anything about 'The Popular'? Searching on google has come up trumps. Does anyone know when this was first published and when it ceased publication?

Cheers,

Adam

Help - 1950s Magazine "Silver Star and Golden Star"

Hi all, I'm sorting through a run of comics and magazines for a friend and come across a magazine I have never heard of before. It is called "Silver Star and Golden Star" issue number 483, May 13th 1951. I cannot find anything about it online, does anybody know the history of this magazine? Who was ...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

There's one nice one but the rest are a bit tatty. I'd never seen them before and the intrigue got the better of me :-)

Have you picked up anything from Stafford car boot recently Phil?

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Carboot finds today! An issue number one of "Cheeky" by IPC Magazines Ltd. I've never read this before so thought I would give it a go. I've also found a set of WW2 RAF magazines from Ceylon (Sir Lanka) called "Airflow". They are from 1943 and 1944. I don't know anything about Ceylon and its role du...

Re: Graphic Novels

Ignoring the bloodiness of it, has anyone read Kick Ass by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.? I thought the illustrations are absolutely stunning. Another one which is rich in detail is the Spanish (English translations available) 'Black Sad' by Juanjo Guarnido. Black Sad is the best graphic novel I h...

Re: What comics DIDN'T you buy today?

Charity shop pricing is a very big problem that I myself have encountered. My apologies this but example is not comics. A few years ago my local hospice shop had donated 4 signed Terry Pratchett first editions. When enquiring the price they were asking for £200 each for them. I was told they had bee...

Teddy Bear Comic Number 1 (21st September 1963)

Hi all, I've just been going through a stack of comics that I've had for a while and need to part with them. I have going to put a lot together under a 'children's comic' lot, but, realised that there is a first issue of 'Teddy Bear'. I must confess that I know nothing about this comic, but, have no...

Graphic Novels

Hi all, Not sure have this has been covered, but, I view them as a brother to the world of comics, does anyone read 'Graphic Novels'? I tend to go for the non-Marvel / DC ones, for some reason they have never appealed to me. I'd love to hear from anyone who has read the likes of; * Maus * V for Vend...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

OK so it's not technically a comic but certainly comic related, I decided to go for a "I'm buying it regardless" approach and purchased the Dandy Free Gift "Whirlybird" on ebay (given away in issue 990, 1961). It was good timing to turn up as I had just received a tax rebate! Didn't think it would g...

Re: Topper Comics 1960s

Thanks for the tip! Looks like it is a complete comic after all! :-)

Great read to, I've not read many of the large Topper issues.

Topper Comics 1960s

Hi All, I am in the midst of sorting out comics for a friend who picked up a large box of comics from the 50s and 60s. Unfortuantely they are all over the place and I am trying to sort them all out into order, correct pages etc. Can anyone advise on how many pages the Topper had in the 60s? I have c...

Re: Asterix Latest Book

Not got that far in the series yet, however, I love the Asterix books! I think the latest one I read was something about Asterix and seeing a ball of light from the sky, turned out to be aliens landing in the village which I really disliked, it just doesn't fit in as far as I am concerned with the w...

Re: What comics DIDN'T you buy today?

Hey Phil, I've only got one film fun issue left. Most of those comics are 80s, stuff like whoopee, whizzer and chips, but then some oddities like computer game ones "Load Runner" which I've never heard of before.

I saw them and thought I'd take a gamble on them?
