Re: Live action Dennis?

Yes, it's Young Adult. The BBC Doctor Who spin-off Class was an example of targeting the YA audience. It's basically stories about teens aimed at teens, although I believe there is also a sizeable adult audience/readership.

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...

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.
