More Dan Dare merchandise - this time it's a 'gyro jeep' - which sounds great but looks, er, less than great. So, pretty typical of a lot of tie-in merchandise then and now!

'Smooshees' - a young kids title from Fleetway (published in 1988/89). This was a tie-in to a toy range by the looks of is. Anyway, a covers gallery has begun...

I've finally found the time to work out the difference between all the Blacksad books that have been published so far. I love what I've read to date and now know what to read next.

2 pages of original Carlos Ezquerra art from the Strontium Dog story 'Journey into Hell' are (for me) the standout item in the Catawiki auction this week. These (and other pages) are highlighted below.

Can anyone help a friend out with these back issues? 'Irish classics in picture story' is REALLY obscure (even for me, ha ha!). Even a cover image would be much appreciated, thanks!

I've long wanted to catalogue the issues of Super Detective Library that contained Rip Kirby strips and a recent listing on ebay gives me a chance to do just that...

A very late shout-out for this auction of Oliver Frey art that's up for sale today - there's at least one page of comic art (from Look & Learn), other material that may be original art (or just prints) plus some of his 'racier' material too!
