I'm not picking up Classics if they don't reinstate Puss 'n' Boots ...

Bought the new Crossing Midnight, American Virgin and Simpsons Treehouse of Horror today - none of them British, though.

Steelclaw, even I know that you are nowhere near to the whole collection of the Trigan Empire from Look And Learn, but that is an absolute steal at ?4. I have seen some of those books go for a heck of a lot more on..you know where. :lol:

VICTORY FOR THE TRIGANS
ELEKTON IN DANGER
THE LEGEND OF HELLAS
TRUCE WITH HERICON
REVLOUTION IN ZABRIZ
BATTLE FOR TRIGAN CITY
THE INVASION OF BOLUS

I had better look out for a lot more. :lol:

Not all today, but British Comics in the in the last two weeks: Doctor Who Adventures, Beano Max, Dandy, 2000AD, Viz, the latest Modesty Blaise collection ("Death Trap"), this year's Broons annual and (at last!) Albion Origins. Not bad for a supposedly dead part of the market.

And secondhand, the London Editions Superman Annual 1983 and a collection of Varoomshka.

Well I won and bought a mahoosive lot off Ebay of a Victor run from 1082 to 1657. This fills in more than a few holes in my collection! And it cost me the princely sum of ?55 including P&P. Happy am I as I was sure that I would be snipered out at the last minute, but nobody else bid!!! Fingers crossed that the Summer Specials for that period are included as well, but that would be just too good to be true.

I hate you! I hate you I hate you I hate you! I've been wanting that book for years, but it never appears on eBay for less than ?25 (including postage) and each month that's just outside my budget. I had it as a kid and it is definitely the best Trigan collection for anyone with limited money. (If money is not a problem the delux complete set is of course the only way to go).

PS I don't hate you really. I'm just so envious. I live in a remote country area (the north coast of Scotland) and never see cheap comics locally. Still, the scenery is nice and there's always eBay.

I had that book! It was a umpteenth hand-me-down but I enjoyed it immensely. The Best Of 2000AD are just that. Best for picking up cheap to fill in the holes in story arcs, but financially, I think you may have paid slightly over the odds for their market value! :lol: Seriously, they might be worth something in a few years time, but I strongly doubt it as they have never had a great resale value. I shifted mine back in the early 90's and the dealer was struggling to decide whether to keep a customer or to take dead stock. He got dead stock, I got 50p an issue!

30 Beanos from the 90's
1 Dandy & Hoot 1987
1 Topper 1986
5 Big Comic Fortnightly
The Best of Beezer No.19

Whoopee Holdiay special 1991
Big Comic Holday Special 1990
2 Buntys 1988
1 Twinkle 1985

What does anyone think of the Funday Times, I see Steve Bright has done Scribble in one of them.
Are they worth keeping?

anything with Steve Brights work needs to be burned quickly...before you like his amazing drawing skill.......seems a strange question so I gave you a strange answer :P

The lion and the unicorn is wonderful by him in the Funday times

What I sort of meant is they don't seem like real comics to me, I haven't really looked through them yet.

I'm digging a hole for myself here arn't I. :headbash:

When I said Steve Bright has done "Scribble" "Scribble" is the name of the Strip.
