I also acquired plenty of other reprint volumes, annuals, fanzines and the like.
I also continued to blog on a daily basis and got my work published in Comic Scene.
A pretty good year then - how was yours?
A pretty good year for me too!
7 sets is great going and I read your blog most mornings.
For me, firstly, I found Charley's War which I'd never read and really loved.
I completed sets of Hurricane, Starblazer, Jet, Dracula Lives and Red Dagger as well as getting very close to completing sets of Bullet, Jag, Thunder and Spiderman Weekly. I also doubled my number of Smash and Wham comics to get a little nearer to completing those sets.
I continued to improve the quality of my Commando collection, picked up over 50 Summer Specials and another 150+ additional British #1s including Adventure, Blue Bird, Ally Sloper's Half Holiday, Rover, Topper, Eagle, Wizard (both), John Wayne and TV Tornado along with by far my biggest purchase of the year, and ever, Beano #1.
A great, if expensive year but my hobby has given, and continues to give, me immense pleasure so here's to a similar 2019 for all of us!
