Re: Rebellion acquire Egmont's archive of strips and charact

Maybe a small niggly point but Whizzer & Chips was first printed in October 1969. It now belongs to Rebellion under this deal so I'm wondering whether the cut off is June 1969 which was mentioned a couple of times in Dez Skinn's Comics International magazine some years ago. This was supposedly the ...

Re: Scouse Mouse / Ace comics

Re: Hookjaw Set To Return

Always liked Hookjaw, so this is welcome news. First Johnny Red, then Hookjaw...who will be next, I wonder?

If you're talking air aces, then nobody beats Battle's own Johnny Red, currently back in action courtesy of Titan Comics.

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Just received my copy of the mammoth Doctor Who Magazine #500, and one of te highlights is the comic strip, which resurrects a multitude of characters from the strip's past including Frobisher the penguin and the villainous Josiah W. Dogbolter. :D

Re: Ebay sales: Good price for the seller, buyer or both??

I picked a 2000 AD #2 up without the stickers back in about 1992, along with numbers #1, #4 and #5, for ten pence each after finding them in a cardboard box on the pavement outside a second hand bookshop in Crystal Palace. :D

Re: currently on at the 'pictures':

I went to see Captain America: Civil War today and I was genuinely impressed. I enjoyed it far more than Avengers: Age of Ultron. Won't post any spoilers but I thought there was a lot more character development in the Captain America movie than in the last Avengers one. 4.5/5 for me. I saw it in Ip...

I never understood why they kept it going after Reg Varney left.

I used to go there every year at one time, sad to hear it's apparently gone downhill.

Re: What kind of fan are you?

My wife left me because my comics collecting took precedence over her. You can have mine, for the right swap; she's a bit untidy, but she makes a nice steak & kidney pie. I don't suppose you've got any 1960s Avengers Annuals (John Steed, rather than Iron Man)? I always regret having no-one to call ...

Re: What kind of fan are you?

I used to attend conventions and the like, but that was when I lived in the London area and had a fairly sizeable disposable income. Nowadays, I don't, and I live in the wilds of Suffolk where, oddly enough, conventions tend not to be held. Since I couldn't really afford to attend most events even i...
