Re: Tiger comic

An excellent article-find Richard. Thank you.

Just when we thought we knew 'everything' about the Tiger comic, this comes along.

I wonder what other hidden gems are out there about British comics?

Apologies for Forum absence.

I attempted to upgrade the forum a couple of weeks ago, and it didn't go to plan. So I reinstalled the previous version. I logged on as my tester self, made a post, replied to it and it all seemed hunky dorey, and I was off, in the knowledge that the Forum was working, albeit the previous version. I...

Re: GCD indexing anomaly

IMO - They are 16 pages comics and should be indexed as such. If I was to take one of those 16-page tabloid comics, cut them in half from left to right, place the bottom half inside the top half, it doesn't miraculously become a 32 page comic :D Hopefully, 16-page comics are not self-identifying as ...

Our Colin (aka colcool007)

Chaps and chapesses, Doug Brian on the Warlord Facebook group has recently written this message: Many of you have probably noticed that joint admin Colin Noble has been conspicuous by his absence on the comic chats recently. It is with an extremely heavy heart that his wife Karen has asked me to inf...

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 ...

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...
