Re: Champ Comic 1984-85 'We Are United'

Just checked and there is a listen again option. If you choose the 3.30 to 4.00am section it's about ten minutes in.

Re: Champ Comic 1984-85 'We Are United'

I woke up at about 4am this morning to hear Barrie Tomlinson being interviewed by Paul Ross on his talk radio/talksport show (1am to 5am). Yes I have my clock radio on all night. I awoke halfway through but I think he said he is writing his autobiography. It's probably available on catch-up somewhere.

Beano expansion

Today and yesterday the Daily Star has had interviews with the Beano editor. He mentioned wanting the Beano empire to become bigger than Disney. Also hinted at more Beanold adult sections, maybe each Christmas. Here's the links: https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/latest-news/beano-comics-boss-vows-tak...

Re: Stan McMurty

Looking at today's front pages I see Stan is back and working for the Mail on Sunday. I don't buy a Sunday paper so won't see his new cartoons.

Re: Please help me identify a mystery Doctor Who artist

As it was in a Holiday Special it might have been submitted by an amatuer and deemed not good enough for the comic, specials and annuals frequently used non-regular artists on strips. It's quite well drawn so I could be wrong. Maybe a commercial artist making some extra money? The lettering isn't th...

Re: Daleks collection

Planned to get my hair cut next week. That's been kyboshified. Looks like another period of looking like a seventies prog rock star.

Back on topic my one complaint is the reduced size of the strips. Eyestrainsville Arizona.

Re: Ebay - you want how much for it???

If you could provide the contents for each of them here I can compare them with the ones I have already indexed on GCD. I've already noted three different contents for Action Double Double no.1. I only need the title and number not the stories.

Thanks in anticipation.

Re: Daleks collection

Tried Smith's at Liverpool Street and Victoria stations today. No luck. It's not even on the Smiths website nor Panini's. I give up.

If anyone sees a bloke in a fedora, leather jacket and whip, that's me. Not Indiana Jones but Rotherhithe Mitch and the Elusive Bookazine.

Bunty Book 1987 virus prediction.

Yesterday's Daily Mail had an article and some images from the 1987 Bunty book which had a story about a virus affecting the world in 2020. People were living in a city screened off from the world where a virus had killed millions. It was brought to earth on a space ship. Just noticed it's on the Su...

Re: Daleks collection

I searched hither and thither but with no luck. The WH Smith website doesn't list the magazine. I'm scunnered.

Re: Daleks collection

There are copies on eBay for £49.99. Some scoundrel buying up copies and selling them at five times the price.

I'll try Sainsbury's tomorrow.
