Lovely bit of 1950s Captain Marvel Jr club ephemera currently up for sale on ebay (I'm not the seller). I love this sort of stuff and I know I'm not the only one as the bidding has been pretty fierce and is now at £100+.

back in the '90s Clearmark comics published a range of titles, including a Tom & Jerry title. Issues are hard to find today but my covers gallery has been updated - if you can fill in any of the gaps then do let me know

'The real Ghostbusters puzzlebuster' is a 6 issue publication from Marvel UK in 1990/91 - a really obscure one this! My covers gallery is half-complete - can you help with the missing issues? Let me know if you can, thanks!

These pages of artwork by Sandy James have been (probably still are) up for sale on ebay - I'm a big fan of Sandy's work and it's a shame that more of it has been reprinted in recent year.
