Re: Complete runs of comics on DVD

The arms race is perfectly legal in the vast majority of instances, but to me this is of far greater concern than these illegal dvd copies.

Re: Leo Baxendale

Sutherlands Bash Street is the most flawless ghosting I ever saw in the funnies [1960s]

Frank McDiarmid doing Ken Reid in the 60s was the second best in my view

Re: Leo Baxendale

Leo definitely lived in Dundee when he worked for D C Thomson Sue.

He was closely involved with the Editors although he probably drew at home.

Re: Leo Baxendale RIP

Leo just got a mention on Radio 2 news : looks as if the more mainstream soundbites will only likely mention his D C Thomson characters.

Re: 2000AD - Why Never a DCT equivalent?

[img http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg2/61ROBERTSMITH/machine%20master.jpg ][/img] All this talk of Starblazer has compelled me to dig out the old copies. The artwork is very much of its' period: fussy and fanciful and quirky---and nowt wrong with that! Here is an excerpt from issue 32 from 1980...

Re: Leo Baxendale RIP

He was the greatest purveyor of comic Anarchy Britain ever produced and he swept almost all that occured in the funnies market before him in his considerable wake.

Re: 2000AD - Why Never a DCT equivalent?

I am just putting this into some sort of perspective , Paw: If a population of well over 60 million 'enjoys' sales of the BEANO at around 35, ooo---then how many folks have heard of a [now] long-defunct niche specialist title like Starblazer? Yes the enthusiasts are certainly aware of Sarrblazer, bu...

Re: 2000AD - Why Never a DCT equivalent?

DCT put out Starblazer, the pocket-sized Commando-format sci-fi series from around 1979 onwards.It ran until the following decade I think but I need to check.

Often overlooked in overall comics History, these quirky items are well worth seeking out and I am glad I sought them out.

The O'Neill-Moore original also contains a demonic version of Rupert the Bear, I seem to recall!
