Well, that's me with the Champion The Wonder Horse theme song stuck in my head.

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: New Johnny Red comic launches in November

Here's another interview with Keith Burns (not heard it because I'm at work).
