Went to Deptford market this morning. I picked up four issues of My Horse. An American sized comic published by Top Sellers but the content looks Spanish. Anyone know any more?

I also picked up a Look-In Follyfoot Special from 1973 and a Terrible Ten Super Mag. A Gold Token Book also American sized. All 50p each.

That title definitely needs the word lovely in the middle for completeness.

Where I live it was called Me 'orse.

I've added the covers to Grand Comics Database as they had none. There were six issues in all.

Picked up a 1971 Dandy and the Christmas 1971 Hotspur for 25p each yesterday. Plus Graham Kibble-White's Ultimate Book of British Comics for 50p. Deptford flea market. There was a suitcase filled with early seventies Hotspurs marked at 50p each but he only charged 25p for mine. They lower the prices later in the day.

Sorry to have to tell you this, Steve, but you've been seriously overcharged for that book.

I just got my latest batch of Commandos including number 5255 which has Lord Peter Flint AKA Warlord.

Good read and a welcome return of one of the 70s DCT legends. Definitely one for my collection.
