Which is precisely my point about Classics removing the colour. I'd pay extra to have the strips done as intended, including the colour.

I suspect that some would then complain because it wasn't A3 like the originals, or on thicker paper, or not digital. ;-)

Thing is, it's just a reprint comic, not a facsimile.

These made me goggle in horror

Was Roger really drawn by the same guy as the Gambols?

Roger dodging exploits were first seen in Beano issue 561, in April 1963.
1953 they mean. It even says that Gordon Bell started drawing him in 1959, how could he have if he hadn't started yet? :headbash: They got the dates wrong for both Roger and Biffo.

And they could've picked a better picture of Dennis - he's in long trousers! He wore them in only one issue if I recall, his knobbly knees ripped them.

More problems. http://www.chezcomics.com/comics-resour ... -comic.htm
Of the last to go were the underwater exploits of a fish shaped submarine in The Iron Fish, and the schoolboy superhero Billy the Cat, and his sister Katie.
Wrong. Iron Fish ended long before that, and General Jumbo finished after Billy the Cat and Katie.
the long lived Lord Snooty, finally dropped in 1988 but still enjoying his aristocratic childhood in the Beano retirement home 65 years later.
The way that's worded, it sounds like 65 years after 1988, not 65 years after 1938! In short, unreliable website. They haven't done their research. :x

They also said Biffo 'Went on' to take Big Eggo's place as the cover star, but Biffo just appeared >Click< like that on the cover; the issue of his debut said "Hip Hurrah! Hip Hooray! Biffo the Bear is here today!"

I vaguely remember that picture. I believe it was on the front cover of a 96 (or 97) issue, and Dennis says something like "I think mum made me wear long trousers to stop me from menacing" and Gnasher faints at the sight of them. Wierd to think that a Dennis fan Member from the 80's thought that only softies wore shorts!

It's very odd that they've used a picture of Dennis in long trousers, as he's always been associated with wearing shorts. The Roger and Biffo pages aren't the only dodgy ones on the site - there's a Ball Boy page with an image and no information whatsoever, and there's not an awful lot to read about on the Ivy the Terrible page either. Also, Roger's artists weren't mentioned between Gordon Bell's time and Barrie Appleby (the present artist). Bob McGrath, Ken Reid (for a second time, he was the original artist), Bob Nixon (twice), Tom Lavery and Frank McDiarmid have also drawn him regularly, and Trevor Metcalfe did a few strips in 2003-2004.

Now That i think of it, I understand why Biffo is Surprised in the pic they used. He's like "Oh my god, How dare you get the date wrong on my page?"

What does it not have to do with the above subject? It's about people thinking that comic characters are in a different comic from what they are, and that was exactly what i was talking about

It doesn't actually follow what everyone else is talking about, the above is discussing incorrect pictures and facts and the previous page discusses news articles and webites which have got things wrong. This has nothing to do with your Mum thinking The Bash Street Kids are sometimes in the Dandy. (What do you mean by "sometimes" anyway?)

WizzKid97 is right, comicsgalore - it's bad form to resurrect old threads if you've nothing much to add. Your name is yanobandy and I claim my cigar... :D

But, seriously, what's happening to Comics UK? Too much signal to noise right now...just like every other non-private forum on the net.
