Re: Not just any old East London pie and mash shop

My local Manzes closes next year. I'll have to go to Goddards in nearby Greenwich for my fix. A privilege for the Southwark Borough newspaper to have a Lewisham Borough story on the cover.

Grand Comics Database gives his real name as Georges Levis and the following:

Born: 1924 August 7 in Toulouse, Haute-Garonne, France

Died: 1988 March 31 in Le Mesnil-Saint-Denis, Yvelines, France

It has a list of publications he worked on under that name.

Commandos v Zombies

Re: WAS ALF TUPPER A COCKNEY?

I've just indexed a 1965 Dandy onto GCD and the Corporal Clott story made me wonder where it was set? I had to add "local natives" to the characters section and then wondered where they were natives of?

Re: Comics on TV

Watching an old Bargain Hunt on Challenge I noticed an edge of a comic in the gackground which I first thought was Tales of Suspense but now think its Spider Man Comics Weekly.
