Just Signed Up - Hello Everyone!

Post by Tonka Super Naturals »

Hi There

I have to own up, I might be a bit of fraud on this forum! I'm not exactly a comic collector as such, and have little knowledge of such things (although my daughter has an extensive comic annual collection)... so why am I here??

I actually collect everything "Tonka Supernaturals", the 80's toy range of hologram figures, and as you probably know, 10 UK Super Naturals Comics were produced by Fleetway! Plus they were reissued as a complete collection in a "Supernaturals Adventure Book".
It's these 80's comics that bring me here!

I would love to find all 10 comics plus the Adventure Book, to get me closer to completing my Tonka Supernaturals Collection. So that's how I came across this forum. I have brilliant copies of the "preview comic" and No.1 and No.6 but that's it. Especially would love to find No 5, as it was a Christmas Issue. During my searches, I found "30th Century Comics" have five Comics listed online, but sadly I was too slow and all but one comic had sold. HELP!!

So that's me!

Welcome to the funhouse. Tonka and Supernaturals? Now that's a crossover I would read! :lol:

Feel free to stick up any picture of the comics and we will do our best to help.

That is such an unusual Ian Kennedy cover for issue 5.

I'm pretty sure there was at least one Supernaturals Holiday Special as well.

I'm so excited.... I've found them!! All issues from the main run, 0 - 9 should be on the way to me. Fingers crossed they arrive safe and sound! So I could just be looking out for the Special issue and The Adventure book!

Ok.. so once they are with me, I want to keep them in the best condition possible. Can anyone recommend Comic Storage for these as I believe they are bigger than the usual US comics??? So whats out there for UK Fleetway Comics from the 80's??

The comics I have so far, are now within comic poly envelopes with backing boards. I'm looking forward to getting them displayed alongside the Tonka Figures from the Comics!
