I always found Crikey to be slightly disappointing. I felt the level of research could be a bit lacking. I remember one issue had an article on Captain Hurricane from Valiant that completely failed to mention his trademark "raging fury"!

If you are looking for a "Steve Holland type" research and background of titles, yes you may be disappointed. However what you do get is a wonderfully produced magazine with loads of illustrations and some superb interviews from those within the comic industry past and present (one that springs to mine is prolific artist Frank McDiarmud). Crikey covered all years and personally I loved the "My comicy Saturday" which recalls readers Saturday morning trips to the newsagents to pick up their weekly comics.

I would highly recommend it.

I thought it was great too. Entertaining fanzine, rather than the chin-stroking lists of artists I steer clear from. I much prefer enthusiasm and enjoyment of Crikey and Past Perfect to history books.

For my few submissions, I worked my bottom off so that they had the same level of research that I would want to have in the articles I read. There was always the chance for people to submit corrections if they so desired.

If I can add my pennyworth, as a comics enthusiast I found CRIKEY! to be an outstanding magazine. From my viewpoint as a writer, I was very impressed by the high quality of the contributions, which did not feel in any way amateurish. I still have them because they are like trusted, and trustworthy, reference books. Tony did a great job!
