I noticed a day or two back that Ray Moore's The Beano Diaries sold on Phil Shrimpton's recent auction for £69.50, £74.31 if the £4.81 p&p costs are taken into account. Owning these two excellent books is getting a bit like having a personal savings account. I wonder how long it will be before they break through the £100 barrier. :)

why don't we do one of those kickstarter things and Ray could reprint the books for any members on here wanting one i'm sure there would be loads of takers.

Didn't DC Thomson's 'History of the Beano' book use a lot of Ray's material from 'The Beano Diaries'?

It certainly did, Phil. They acknowledged in the index to The History Of The Beano that all the material up to the end of 1989 had been taken from The Beano Diaries, and went on to state that the information after 1989 was provided by Ray and the staff of the company.

Hi Guys,
Re 'The Beano Diaries' although its obviously pleasing to see the occasional set fetch a tidy sum on ebay and to hear that they are still a worthwhile research resource from fellow collectors I do think that they were a thing of their time. I certainly wouldn't consider reproducing them as they were as, now, so much more could be added that has happened to the Beano in the intervening years.

It really is hard to believe that most fans couldn't put a name to 95% of British comic artists in those pre-internet days when Ray, Denis Gifford, Steve Holland, David Ashford, etc. compiled their first indexes. They broke a logjam of ignorance that had pervaded the industry for decades and provided a service that the rest of us should be forever grateful for!

Thanks for your kind words guys, they are much appreciated. I have to admit that I would rather carry on with my work on the Victor Index or my 80 year celebratory volume on the Broons and Oor Wullie than revisit the Beano or the Dandy at the present time.

I don't know how far the Broons/Oor Wullie volume is from completion but it's worth remembering that 2019 will mark the fiftieth anniversary of Dudley D. Watkins' death.
