Found some fun free gifts from IPC magazines in Stafford today!

A football league ladder with all the card team names from Shoot 1969
'My Favourite Soccer Stars' player card albums from Tiger, Smash & Buster 1970
Dial-a-Striker from issue 1 of Striker

Also two 'Your Team Records for the Past Twenty Years!' from Scorcher, and another from Valiant.

Happy find and a good cheer-up after a long, stressful week in the office.

Some nice finds there. Well done. And I know what you mean about a long week at the office!

I managed to get along to Swapmeet 6 and did fairly well.

I swapped out 8 key issues of 2000AD, 50 plus Wizards, a pile of Red Daggers, 100 Dandys and a 1956 Dandy annual for 480 Commandos, 98 Battle Weekly, a 1953 Beano annual and even came home with more money in my pocket than I left with.

I also came home with more comics than I left with too! All in all, a pretty successful day for myself. Now, it's a case of roll on Swapmeet 7 in Banbury, Virusalype allowing!

Everything is apocalyptic at the moment so I’ve been rounding up a few final issues for my collection, namely Rupert 100 (1985 - Marvel), Donald Duck 18 (1975) & The Savage Sword of Conan 18 (1975). All have exciting news inside...!

I always used to cringe when I saw that!

The Donald Duck title was in the same format as Vulcan, i.e. small and lots of colour (in this case throughout). Personally I liked it but that brought a hefty 10p price tag and too expensive for a weekly splash out.

Made two purchases from eBay.com.au

I bought today two issues of the best of Whoopee! as well as a copy of the 1959 Dandy book.

I should have these purchases by sometime after Easter. (One lot has to come from the other side of the country, while the other is coming from far north Queensland)

I had the Masters of British Comic Art delivered and I think I have just seen a UK exclusive of being one of the first to watch the documentary Alcatena about the superlative artist Quique Alcatena who worked on Crunch, Victor and Starblazer to name but a few of the comics that featured his art.
