What comic(s) are you planning to get?

Post by SID » 26 Apr 2019, 08:39

Without giving away trade secrets (i.e. you are bidding for a comic on eBay), is there a comic/comic related item that you are planning to get in the not so distant future?

I am looking forward to getting the new Brawler comic which I first saw in Lew's Blimey blog (https://lewstringer.blogspot.com/2019/0 ... oming.html) and have put in a pledge.

Looks good.

Not at the moment, SID. I think I have as many as I'm likely to need for the foreseeable future, but never say never.

Looking for Tiger #1 and possibly #2. I've got the free gifts and I'd really like the comics to go with them.

At some point, I want to get the first couple of years worth of Battle Picture Weekly before it became Battle-Action.

Get it. It's lush. I keep going back to mine to enjoy the unsullied art as they have reproduced some of the art without any captions or headers.
I started to say something sensible but my parents took over my brain!

I picked up the first couple of years worth last year and now I've read them, I'm looking at filling in the gaps to 1980ish
