Re: Fantasy Football anyone?

Sorry to disappoint but I really dislike football. Probably because I spent my youthful Saturdays watching Airdrie. I have relations and friends who are Hearts fans and it's purgatory going out with them. Tonight, my wife and I will sit down with a glass of wine and watch the pro-bowl, all the way f...

Re: Hello

Yes, I think that was the case. Black had to rename a few characters incl. Daredevil, (not the Marvel one) who became Red Devil. I'd have to dig through my AC Comics box to find other examples and, just at the moment those few glasss of wine are making me reluctant to leave my chair.

Re: Double Double Comics

I remember these things. They showed up in newsagents and, while I don't have any examples, I always thought they were a means of the distributor making some money from the cover stripped returns.

Glasgow comic mart

Not quite in the same league as most of the other events on here but it keeps the cravings at bay. This one is on Sat. 26th Feb at the Queen Margaret Union, Glasgow Uni. Small, a bit tatty, dim (much like myself) but there are dealer tables, a coffee shop, a few guys posing about and a chance to cat...

Re: Favourite characters/stories in girl's comics

Guru , I've not encountered Lucky Charm either and I like Catch the Cat. Something else to chase. Tonibunny , there was another character who used suction pads to climb and I only discovered him this week when a friend loaned me some issues of The New Adventure from1931 and this suited and masked h...

Re: Hello

Thanks for the welcome. As for GAC and Captain Marvel, apart from American copyright being slightly different from U.K and Europe, D.C. do have the rights to publish C.M. but the original stories in Fawcett Comics are p.d. as copyright was never renewed on them, I think.

Hello

I only found this forum yesterday. Don't know how I've missed it for so long. When I glanced through some of the entries, I was amazed to find contributors writing about Nelson Lee, Girls Crystal and old British comics - all subjects that intrigue me. My collection, apart from American comics, inclu...
