Re: Thoughts on collecting comics

People are scum. Philistines. They'll just see things through completely different eyes. They'll see it as just old kids' tat, clogging up rooms, like in a Channel 4 documentary hoarder's house. They'll feel no connection whatsoever to old Tom and Jerry board games, Quick Draw McGraw coffee flasks,...

Re: Thoughts on collecting comics

Desirable and collectible are pretty much the same thing, if people want them, they'll pay for them. And yes, roughly thirty to thirty-five years seems to be the magic number for nostalgia. At the moment, it seems to be all about the eighties from a dealer's POV. Well, I've seen people rifling thro...

Re: Future Shock! The Story of 2000AD - Wed 6th 11.25pm on F

I'd certainly agree the game was from from up. Warlord, Battle, 2000AD, Krazy, The Crunch etc. etc. etc. (although maybe he means boys comics only really had another 10 years, rather than good comics were about finished mid-70s). Late-80s mature comics (Crisis, 2000AD, Revolver, Viz etc.) were grea...

Re: Thoughts on collecting comics

my brother has told me all my comics are going in a skip when i'm gone :( I read an interesting thread on the Marvel Masterworks forum a while back, where somebody posted photos of his quite spectacular collection of pop culture memorabilia: walls and walls of perfectly preserved vintage games, com...

Re: Thoughts on collecting comics

Marvel UK are actually very collectable, now. I've been selling quite a few lately, and getting a decent price for them. I've also been filling quite a few gaps in my own collection. There seem to be more around than there used to be. I think they are seeming increasingly desirable . I'm not sure a...

Re: Future Shock! The Story of 2000AD - Wed 6th 11.25pm on F

In view of my age; born in 1967, my love affair with comics burgeoned when they were beginning to wilt - circa 1975. For around six years thereafter, I was completely hooked with all things comics while little realizing that the game was up by this time. Then sadly, I eschewed the few British title...

Re: Thoughts on collecting comics

It's funny, Phoenix, I used to go to the Manchester Piccadilly Plaza comic marts, whenever I could, as a boy, probably from around mid-1980, and only recall there being tables of US Marvel and DC comics. I wouldn't have been interested in those old D.C. Thomson story papers, so I wonder if I've blo...

Why do you need to enjoy it in the shops? Just buy the damn thing and take it home, it ain't a library, y'know!

Re: Thoughts on collecting comics

I can also appreciate someone is doing this for posterity (although it depends what happens with the collection - poor old Denis Gifford being a case in point) I'm assuming, starscape, that you would have wanted the whole of Denis's collection to be displayed somewhere, perhaps in a kind of living ...

Re: Thoughts on collecting comics

One question comes to mind though; have you read them all? (If so, that's even more impressive. :)) Can't admit to being that impressive Lew. I've certainly read a lot of them but I gave up on the idea long ago that I would ever be able to read them all. I don't mean to be rude but isn't that a lit...

One of the best kids dramas ever made, in my opinion. Baffling, but wonderful.

Gareth Thomas RIP

Gareth Thomas, best known for playing Roj Blake in the 70s sci-fi Blake's 7, has died of heart failure. He was 71. A sad loss to the TV industry.
