Scott Goodall

Folks I would love to read the interview with Scott Goodall that was apparently conducted by the forum some time back. Is it anywhere on the inter-web?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Any Christmas Issues that Stood Out - Past or Present

Talking to an old friend (and fellow forum member) recently and we both have vivid memories of Christmas editions of comics filling us with as much excitement as our glorious annuals. Loved them.

Re: Steel Claw-Stupendous library

Thanks guys for all the replies. I have a fair bit of Steel Claw material as he was one the characters that sparked a British comics revival on my part about 4 years back. Since then I have been trying to pick up as much material on him as possible and the Titan collection was among the first of my ...

Steel Claw-Stupendous library

I have been reading some of my old stupendous library Steel Claw stuff. At times the story-lines appear a little bit more mature than those appearing in Valiant-a little bit of international politics, Steel Claw executing a FEAR leader etc.

Anyone know who wrote the stories in the stupendous series??

Re: Is this forum turning its toes up?

I say to my shame that I only returned to Albion's comic shores after a lifetime caught up in spandex and Americana about 4 years ago. Since then I have had some great tour guides and this place has been great for me to trawl through. I probably haven't posted near enough though.

You are loved.

I know it was a Six Million Dollar Man knock off but still loved the strip at the time and was one of the key attractions when I bought Programme (as it was called then) 1.
Same here fella. I loved Mach 1-huge buzz around his character.

Re: Blogging 'bout VULCAN

Loved the Vulcan piece Lew. When I came back to the British comics fold some years ago the acquisition of the Vulcan annual was a sheer delight.

Re: A new British adventure weekly.... Could it ever happen?

Just so you know, The Phoenix really does go from strength to strength with a great retention on subs as well as good sales in shops. It's not only Waitrose and comic stores (including some Forbidden Planets), but plenty of high street bookshops, with many branches of Waterstones on board. Can't fi...

Rest in peace, Casey. You enriched a lo...

Re: Return of the summer special

Well Saturday was indeed Summer special day-celebrated in my local coastal town Newcastle County Down Norn Iron. The sun rose to the occasion supplying the most vivid summer special imagery amid food and ice-cream aplenty.

I even have sunburn.

Re: Tom Tully RIP?

Terribly sad if true-a comic great and really does deserve appropriate recognition. I take it he is/was an intensely private man? Only in that he didn't attend comic conventions, (as far as I know) but that also applied to most comics folk of Tom's generation. Sadly, as most UK comic cons were cent...
