Fantastic 40th anniversary

Seriously. Lew - DO it! You've aroused my curiosity, and if nothing else I want to see why it was so bad. Your scan of the cover of the first 'FANTASTIC' brought more great memories flooding back I'd forgotten all about it, but I now vividly recall copying those poses of Thor and the original Iron M...

Where did this FREE GIFT come from???

One I'd forgotten about until I saw your scans, Lew, then it all came flooding back, especially Bovver Boy.

Many thanks for that.

New comic from DC Thomson

I have apparently contributed a few pages, Lew...though it was so secret I didn't know it at the time, and I had to draw them with my eyes shut.

Captain Handsome

Steve has done many things over the years for DCT, Peter, but I'm sure he'll be along shortly to let you know (he lives in Hollywood these days, being the megastar that he is, right, Steve?). He's also worked for Steven Spielberg for many years now as an employee of Dreamworks. My better half and I ...

Good try but no cigar, Peter. Steve Horrocks is your man. Must rush out and buy a copy - not seen it yet.

Comic prices and inflation. How do they compare?

Interesting extrapolation of statistics, Kev, but it relies on the presumption that all rises in house prices fall into line with the ratio you apply to your parents' abode, and ignores the significant contributing factor affecting its current value of the plaque over the front door reading 'Kev F L...

Me neither, except that they didn't know they were born! It just wasn't the same down at our local pool in the upside down canoe.

And now I find out that goody-two-shoes Tintin had one an' all!!! Life is SO unfair. :evil:

We were 40 years ahead of our time

That's truly fantastic, Brisey - and my childhood dream come true. Now all I need is to gain a spare 40 grand and lose a spare 20 lbs, and I'm all set.
