Re: Looking for mystery/detective quiz short comics or comic strips

Eagle's Can You Catch a Crook? might fit the bill. It started out as a standard strip called Sergeant Bruce, C.I.D. but in Vol. 13 no. 43 (27/10/62) it was revamped. initially it ran to three pages and the reader would be prompted at various points to see if they could find a clue. A text box at the...

Re: Asterix in Valiant

Of course, this wasn't the first time Uderzo's art had graced the pages of Valiant. The first two Belloy stories had appeared as Paladin the Fearless. "Chevalier Sans Armure" was in issues 1 - 20 and "La Princesse Captive" in issues 21 - 43.

Re: Asterix in Valiant

That Wikipedia quote was written by your truly! They got through the whole story in one page per week. As an example of how they edited it, here's a comparison of the last two pages of the original and how they appeared in Valiant: https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-FtDf8XF21K0/XsFpeC6jYyI/AAAAAAAADac/SnPsj...

Re: Ranger annuals - Asterix

The only one I've seen is the Ranger Book 1967. It has page 34 of Asterix and the Big Fight featuring a fun fair.

Re: Dick Turpin

Dick Turpin had several runs in Knockout . The first was in 1948 ( Dick Turpin's Ride to York drawn by D C Eyles) with another in 1949/50 ( Breed of the Brudenels by H M Brock). There was also a short run in 1962, possibly just a single story, Dick Turpin and the Cavern of Monsters . In this story, ...

Re: Marvel Comics #1000 announced

Why would you assume the writer gets to choose the logo? I'm not saying he didn't - I don't know - but I'd have thought it more likely it was the art department.

Artist identification - Boys' World Annual 1966

The 1966 Boys' World annual contained a four-page strip called The Trojan Horse which I plan to feature on my Art of Diving blog. I can't identify the artist so I thought I'd consult the hive mind. Anyone have any ideas please? https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-XCwD033LXSY/XNJGue6JB7I/AAAAAAAACsA/9iQ42mbKO...

Re: Ebay - you want how much for it???

Only £1387.65. Without paying any regard to the actual value of this item, as I have no idea what that is, I do wonder what decision-making process the seller has used to reach such a high figure, and yet hasn't been able to resist adding a further 65p. It's from a US seller and the actual price is...
