Brian Walker has passed away

Some of you may be aware of Brian's passing, but I only found out about it via an email from his daughter Jo a few days ago. Brian sadly passed away back in May of this year, aged 94. As this UK Comics Fandom web page states, he drew I Spy in Sparky, Fun Fear and Ghost Train for Whoopee!, Our Gran ,...

Re: Vintage Pre-War Beano & Dandy Comics

The images for your 2 Beano's and 2 Dandy's have come through fine thanks. Very nice items to have in your collection. I don't have any pre-war issues of these titles. My earliest is a 1941 Dandy. However, I have managed to acquire front covers of most of the pre-war issues though. Mostly from aucti...

Re: Monster Fun: the real deal?

Here's the Monster Fun skeleton from my own collection that I purchased as a child when it came out back in 1975. The feel of the skeleton is soft and rubbery, it has the green eyes and the thread that you mentioned. It is very flexible, as I try to demonstrate in the last of my pictures here. Your ...

Forum update will take place tonight

The forum will be updated tonight (7th Feb 2020) at 22:00 GMT. It will take about 4-6 hours to implement, so you should be okay to log in again from 04:00 GMT on the 8th Feb 2020, if all goes well. If you are still logged in at 22:00 and are adding something to the forum, chances are it will be lost...

Re: Submitting comics to the gallery

Thank you Goof. I have looked through old emails, including deleted and spam, and cannot find the one that you sent. However, I have adjusted the Specials Gallery as you have detailed. I have kept the 'revised' 1967 Special as a query until we know for sure, but I agree with you about the masthead t...

Thank you Blaing and Goof for your uploads, and apologies that they were not uploaded to the website sooner. Being 'Out of Office' for the past week didn't help me to add these to the Specials section in the past week, but the main problem was that I found them in my Spam folder along with a load of...

Thanks Blaing,

The Specials Gallery has been corrected.

Re: New look forum

Digi, I'll get on to that during the week.

I don't have the original raw files, just the finished article. But it shouldn't be too difficult to remove those white outlines.

Cheers.

Re: "A pony tale" in Suzy

Derek, P.S. Why have you changed the backgroung colour of your forum to this drab brown? There was absolutely nothing wrong with the original. Can you possibly look on this as an experiment that has failed in its aim, and go back to the tried and tested? Please. No. I explained in a separate topic w...
