Re: Beano expansion

The Kids did have names in the Rover (?) text stories, such as Danny “Death’s Head” Morgan. Smiffy’s real surname is Smith.

Re: Our Colin (aka colcool007)

Colin was very close to a complete set of unique Commando stories. I’m not quite sure whether he got there, but it was very close - of course, he aspired to a complete set of Commando issues, including reprints.

Another of the kind people in comics gone.

Re: Jackpot Annual 1982 Christmas Cover Art

Ahhhhhhhh..... who can remember the Jackpot Annual & Comic by Fleetway Press? I do. Had the comic on order at my local newsagent, among others, and every week would run home from school to see if my mother had picked it up. It was superb. Great stories and even greater characters. Anyway, a few yea...

Re: Roy of the Rovers coming back?

Nothing appalling about the art. Plenty of character, and with a clear view of the story being told, especially if you have read the graphic novels and books. I'd also be pretty certain that David drew his pages for the special on a tablet. He certainly coloured them digitally, and it's totally unmi...

Re: Roy of the Rovers coming back?

You should have read to the end. David Sque has drawn a new strip in it.

The whole reboot is extremely well written and plotted out, and the key characters are well-defined. The artwork is a matter of taste, and I like it.

There is a hint on that on the inside front cover of the second Braddock story, to look out in December. Whether it's Ramsey's Raiders, Union Jack Jackson or something else altogether it doesn't say.
Been confirmed it's Union Jack Jackson on 12th December.

That title definitely needs the word lovely in the middle for completeness.
