DC Thomson Heritage Comics?

Post by Spencer » 04 Dec 2019, 17:13

Hi all,

I was excited to see DC Thomson following in the footsteps of Rebellion and finally dipping in to their archives.

I bought the Starblazer book recently and even downloaded the Spellbound digital comic on ComiXology before it mysteriously disappeared a few days after Halloween.

I now see that both their Facebook and Twitter accounts no longer exist?

Does anybody have any information on this at all?

Thanks

I did wonder if I was the only one that managed to get a copy of Spellbound before it mysteriously disappeared. It seemed a nicely put together book too, with some of the new stories too.

I did email the dct archives to enquire about this and got a reply that they forwarded on my enquiry to heritage department (I couldn't find an email for heritage department myself) but did not hear back from them. I'm guessing some legal reasons cropped up but it's very odd that they just removed everything without releasing some statement saying it wouldn't be released.

I have to say I was really disappointed that the digital Spellbound never materialized and I was hoping for an actual printed copy too. I wonder what happened to it?

Fear not good reader, your friendly neighbourhood stalker... er, no I mean superfan. Definitely no stalking involved...

I have spoken to the great and the good within those walls and I have been assured that it's a tidy up of social media and that the Spellbound download will be back in the New Year.

That is great news. Must admit, I would like to buy a printed copy.

It's good to be back! I've had a bit of a sabbatical after moving house and selling off a lot of my collection (too much to fit in when sharing a house with someone else.who has a lot of stuff!). I'm really pleased with the amount of activity going on in the world of comics - it's lovely to see all the reprints of classics back.on the shelves alongside the new material as well.
