Re: Adults buying comics - embarrassed?

strangely I found it more embarrassing in my late teens and early 20s buying comics (when I looked a lot younger than my peers and could "get away " with it) than I do now in my errr 40's (and well into my 40's) I don't buy a lot of comics now, and those I do buy I tend to buy in specialist comic sh...

Re: Thomson characters that have appeared in viz

There was Gilbert Ratchet who was a bit like Screwy Driver , and another strip (think it was by the same artist) based on Brassneck but the "brassneck" in question was a bundle of sticks with a bucket for a head carried around in a cart.

Re: What do you hate about collecting comics?

Oh the musty smell of badly cared for, mostly UK comics - comics that draw int he damp, leave that musty smell in the house and lack of space . Collectors who think a run of the mill/poor issue of a 1970s issue of The Defenders / Champions / Avengers comics etc ares worth £20 each, and collectors w...

Re: Shop Untouched Since The Sixties

Here's a link (if anyone is interstred) to the Mars Attracks cards of the 1960s (it is also the site of the artist, Norman Saunders that painted the cards) not as good as the civil ward link Steve supplied as it only shows the front of the cards.

Re: Wasted: new Scottish comic feat Alan Grant and Frank Quietly
