Happy New Year everyone. :D

A double eBay purchase today of a bundle of summer specials, including the 1996 and 1997 Bash Street Kids summer specials

Also bought a copy of the 1988 Beano Summer Special. I should have this by the end of the month.

A very quiet time currently on the comic buying front. My only purchases over the last week and a bit have been:

Plane Tree #2 - I've now decided to collect these little Blitz comics as I love the provenance.
Enid Blyton's Adventure Magazine #1 - Gutenberghus - 1985
School Fun #1 wfg - IPC - 1983
Action Force #1 - Marvel - 1987
Mandy Picture Story Library #1 - DCT - 1978
Not UK comics but I love the TV series so I picked up 23 The Walking Dead graphic novels for £30 on Gumtree
2000AD Sci Fi Special 1996 - just 2 more to go
Western Fighters #1 - Streamline - 1951

A much better couple of days!

Marvel Pocket Chiller #1 - 1980
Boy Detective Comics #1 - T&P - 1952
Forbidden Worlds #1-7 - T&P - 1950
Out of this World #1-9 - T&P - 1961
T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Action #1 - Savoy - 1986 - I'd not come across this series before.
Maverick Marshal #50 (#1) - L Miller - 1959
Kid Montana #50 (#1) - L Miller - 1959
Robin Hood #1 - WDL - 1955
I also managed to buy the first 22 Mad Magazines by Strato from 1959 and Issues #2-7 of Frogman Comics by T&P from 1952 (even though the GCD says there were only 5 issues). They will go well with the #1 that I picked up a year ago!

I had a good day yesterday as I had 28 1940s Wizards delivered. Shame that I only needed 9 of them for the collection!

I also bought 3 Lucky Charms to increase my collection by 300%. I am not going to do that often am I?

And yesterday I completed a grailquest that I have been carrying out for the last 30 years and that was to purchase a piece of original art by the late great Jim Baikie. So I have now paid for and I am awaiting the delivery of a page from ChiPs that appeared in Look-In way back in issue 27 dated 30 June 1979.

I did pass Maths at 'O' level with 50%, Col, so unless my error is in the other 50%, I can't see how 3 issues of Lucky Charm from an absolute total of 30 possibles, can get anywhere near 300%, given that the full run would surely be only 100%. The three you bought can only be 10% of the total possible. If I'm wrong, it's no wonder I only obtained 50% at age 16.

a few more issues closer to completing the 1990 issues of the Topper.

There were two bundles, but I only bid on one which now brings the missing issues down to about a dozen or so.

The hunt will continue once I return from my yearly break in March.

If he had one issue and then bought three more would that not be a 300% increase?

How do I know, Steve? I would have said that it was a 75% increase, but numbers are not my forte. Words are. Hopefully, some of our members are mathematicians, and may be willing to steer us along the right path towards certainty. My 50% at 'O' level was only 5% above the pass mark, and given the way the marking system worked, it may only have been 3%, as the marks the pupils received were always in fives. We never found out therefore what our actual marks were.

That is correct that he has made a 300% increase in his collection and now owns 13.333333% of the set!
