Blast! Ray beat me to it...again!Kashgar wrote:In between their publication as text stories in the boys papers and their revival as girls picture stories at least two of the examples cited above had already been turned into picture strips in the boys picture papers 'The Gaunt Hounds are Out' in the very first issues of Victor and 'Chained to his Bat' in the pages of Hornet. Roast on Sunday, cold cuts on Monday and soup on Tuesday, Thomsons certainly knew how to get the best out of a good story!
Echoing Phoenix's comments, I always loved comics, but it's only been the last few years where I have made a concerted effort to find out more about the artists and the writers. And Ebay has been such a boon to comic collectors, I can't begin to say how much it has helped me to build up my collections of Victor, Warlord, etc. And with the explosion of blogs, we have never had it so good. It's just a shame that tastes have changed so much that when we are all able to collect the comics that we love, they've gorn and killed 'em all orf!
