Re: Just a comment

What CharleyBourne writes sounds about right. Although FP with their huge clout and buying power might not actually have to. Don't know which version of FP Leicester belongs to, but the scale of either operation should mean any of their stores can get round that requirement. But the E/B store doesn'...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

The 1/6d Warrior doesn't ring any bells, I'm afraid, and there's no listing in the Guide. But as Colin and I and some of you are aware, there are many omissions in the British Guide, and also, Micron and the other company names produced a fair number of titles that seem to have passed us all by. Not...

Re: Just a comment

I'd have to agree with much that's been said. Missed the spoiler and needless to say, I now want to know what it was :roll: As rumours continue to circulate that Marvel comics are in trouble, despite Disney, and the state of a lot of the rubbish put out by DC nowadays, I get the feeling that the fut...

Re: What comics or comic related Christmas presents did you

starscape and your Christmas with the Super-Heroes, it's not even the original Sandman, we're probably into the Kirby version here, although it could be a Paul Norris drawn story. Sandy was a new sidekick in the stories when they went to the yellow, superhero type costume. I've always preferred the ...

Re: Best books in 2017

I hate to disagree but I doubt this is the best year ever for British comic fans. Surely certain years in the mid '50's would have to be considered? A number of others need to be looked at also. As for Marney, it does nothing for me, I'm afraid. But if we are going to consider 2017 as the best, ther...

Re: Early masked mystery men

Well, that was an exciting 4 pages. Not enough and I can't find the next issue, or any others, for that matter. Thrill-a-minute stuff. Mystery, chases, tombs, secrets, peril. A decent hero in the young policeman, Bob Bryan. Then there's the frighteningly mysterious central character, The Phantom. I ...

Re: Early masked mystery men

Kashgar, I can't thank you enough for the information. Now there's a lot of digging to do trying to find examples of the later versions. As I, and Colin and a couple of others, have said before, no matter how much I think I know, there's always more. Phoenix, I will post a report on what I thought o...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Adam, a bit late but I have to say, what a nice haul. The Jet Comic should have Embleton art, but more importantly, the spaceship on the cover looks awfully like Captain Condor's ship. Never seen Atomic Age Comic but I'm more jealous of your Electroman, seeing as how I'm a superhero nut. Senorita Ri...

Re: Early masked mystery men

Thank you, Phoenix. I've just checked on CB+ and one of the 2 issues we have features an episode of the story. Downloading it now to read. I'm sure there are more MMM than I am aware of and if you or anyone else can add any names and sources, if known, that would make a grumpy old codger happy indee...

Re: Early masked mystery men

Matrix, that's great. Never heard of this MMM. Any chance of his name - if you have the issue that is :wink: CB+ only has 2 issues of Bullseye on file and both are from 1931. As Bullseye is very difficult to find, I've little chance of finding out more, and there's nothing on Friardale. Those ancien...

Early masked mystery men

Digging for old gold comics for CB+, I found a French site by Professeur Labor Improbus, who has gathered together a selection of old, really old, French language comics with a lot of well researched info on titles, creators and some background. More importantly for me, he has 2 comics from 1938 wit...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

That's impressive with the festive design. You lost me a bit on the explanation but I'm not that good with computery stuff. As for languages, I read French and Italian quite well and can struggle through an old Spanish landscape like Capitan Trueno, as the language is relatively simple and it's so w...

Re: The longest running comics that have never been renumber

Lew, re. Sadistik. I've never been quite sure if Sadistik was an Italian reprint of the Turkish Kilink or an original. I'm ashamed to say that I don't have a Sadistik example in my collection, although I do have digital versions of Kilink, and I bought all the movies I could find, a few years ago. T...

Re: The longest running comics that have never been renumber

Yes, you're bang on. It's just that Diabolik has been running non-stop since 1962. That's only the original title with new story every issue and doesn't include the reprint run, the 2nd. reprint run and the Gigante issues. Not to mention all the collections and other specials that appear regularly. ...
