Re: Politics in kids comics

Alex Salmon and Gordon Brown both appeared in the Broons but probably the most out and out political endorsement was in Eric Larsen's Savage Dragon issue 137 where on the cover he outright backs Obama ( of course Mr Obama had a famous appearance in Spider Man isse 583 also) - Kennedy, Nixon , Carter...

Re: Steel Claw-Stupendous library

Hi Paw, yes I do indeed remember the superhero Steel Claw, I liked that time also but cant remember his outfit I seem to recall it being a bit naff with 2 small helmet mounted antenna (and yellow)? Steel Claw (imho) is a character that would work very well with todays audience.

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Picked up Jag (8th June 1968) for £3 in the Barras. Incidentally anyone in the Glasgow area that's not been to the comic stall in McIvers Market area and is looking for some really old comics (50s 60s and older Beano's, Dandy's etc etc) should talk to the guy he has 100s behind the counter- I always...

Re: Dredd Superfiend

I have to admit that I'm not a massive Dredd (or 2000AD) fan so do'nt have that link to the character a lot of fans have, but I thought that cartoon was okas well -, it was meant to be a parody (I hope) but it would be good to see a realistic / Bruce Timm type version of the character all the same -...

Great stuff the double splash pa...

Re: Graphic Novels

Another excellent choice Paw re Toths "Bravo for Adventure " then again everything (imho) Toth did was fantastic . Wasn't "Bravo" technically a collection as (if I'm not wrong) as it first appeared in Warrens "Rook" magazine (issues 3 and 4) in 1980 not that this is an issue was just wondering what ...
