Re: What comics did you buy today?

A word about the Gangland comic I bought in the list above. I was attracted to the cover because it looked similar to the work Lawson Wood used to produce. I knew the cover bore no relation to the three stories inside so I just merely bought It because of the cover. https://i.imgur.com/iV8B3AR.jpg ...

Re: Kim comic

The Rusty Staples blog says:

"Kim
From: 24 April, 1982
To: 2 June, 1983
Duration: 1 year, 1 month
Issues: 59

A magazine aimed at young teenage girls… Contained photo-stories, but apparently more of a mag than a comic."

So some comic strip content, I suppose.

Re: Steve Larrabee in Rover

Steve Larrabee was a British fictional cowboy created to publicise Lone Star Company's cowboy toys. They hired an actor called Roy Green to play the role in publicity events then a BBC TV series and a radio series. I assume that DCT licensed the character for this story.

Re: Daleks collection

I just got an e-mail from Forbidden Planet.com saying that my copy has been sent, so it looks like they finally got new stock in.

Re: What comics did you buy today?

The new Battle Of Britain Special from Rebellion. Rat Pack as nasty as ever, balanced by a short story that left me a bit misty-eyed, and I've still lots to read. In the shops later this week. 100 pages.

Re: British / American Comics in China

The last scan looks like the work of Walt Kelly, but badly traced. He did a lot of comic book work before creating Pogo. This might be from Fairy Tale Parade, which has a Facebook page at https://m.facebook.com/WaltKellysFairyT ... l&mt_nav=0. People there might know.

Re: British comics reprinted in Europe

I think the second page is American. The art style reminds me of the Dan Barry years of Flash Gordon (the fifties, mostly) while the heroic character, who seems to be called Dzoni (Yugoslavian for Johnny) looks like Frank Frazetta drew him.
