Re: Marvelman and Young Marvelman [Key Notes]

Good question. Who are Marvelman's principal enemies and in which issues do they first appear? Did Marvelman have any major costume changes? Did he have sidekicks and when do they first appear? Were there any anniversary issues? Did Marvelman get all his powers at once or did they first appear in pa...

Re: Monster Fun: the real deal?

Thanks for this. They are very close, but the material looks like it's different (semi-hard plastic resin versus flexible rubber) and also, the way "Hong Kong" is written on the back is different. The moulding of mine looks to be less sharp than the others I'm seeing. How to explain it? A fake? No, ...

Re: Monster Fun: the real deal?

I've just seen another one of these on eBay, and the seller posted a picture of the back of the skeleton. They said it was a soft plastic but it does look pretty identical to mine, so maybe mine is the right one after all! Still, I'd be interested to hear if anyone thinks it's from a different comic...

Monster Fun: the real deal?

I just bought a copy of Monster Fun no. 3 with the free gift a Super Shaking Skeleton. It doesn't seem very shaky though, and I'm wondering if it's the original gift.It came with a copy of the comic. The trouble is there are few pictures to compare it to, so I wondered if anyone on the forum has one...

Re: Question about Rover free gifts

thanks! I took the date from a pink flyer and this perhaps gave the date it went on sale rather than the date on the cover.

Question about Rover free gifts

Does anyone know which issue of ROVER carried the “Round Robin” card as a free gift? I know the date is February 20, 1958, but I don’t know the issue number. I expect the answer will be in 'Free gifts in the big 5" but I don't have a copy any more :( Does anyone know where I could get a copy of the ...

Re: Mandy free gift

Thanks! I saw that on eBay a while back which is why I knew it was from the 80s, but couldn't see the listing any more which is why I asked here. If anyone knows the details of that issue it would be much appreciated. Thanks again!

Mandy free gift

I'm pretty sure this was a free gift in MANDY in the 1980s, but I couldn't say which year or which issue. Does anybody know???

TV21 Soccer Cards

Hi! Does anyone know which issue of TV21 these free soccer cards came from? I'm guessing it was TV21 and TV Tornado #192 but it looks like they issued similar cards at least once more (in TV21 & Joe 90 #1).

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Bought two copies of the "Fantasy Unlimited Catalogue" which I guess was the catalogue of a comic shop in N1, London: but can't find any info on it online. Does anyone know more about the shop, or even have a picture of it?

Re: Energy Gun

Thanks Adam - I would also guess if it came from a comic it would have a little logo saying 'presented with the x' on it. Still, you never know!
