    Please, allow me to inaugurate this thread with the best of British!

    In a zryson-esque stroke of luck, I stopped into my local secondhand book shop today and found a small stash of UK Commando comics dating from the early '80s to the early '90s. I picked up four consecutive issues, numbered #1501 to #1504, dating from the 1982 - 1984 period when I was reading the comic semi-regularly.

    In fact, I used to own issue #1501 (Desert Ordeal) back in the day and just looking at the interior artwork brings back some really nice memories. Unfortunately, the collection of Commando books that I built up in the early 1980s has long since gone, but depending on how much I enjoy reading these, I may have to start buying up more issues from the period.

    Oh, here's some tasty shots of my bedroom carpet, by the way...

    Very cool. They remind me of some Irish comics I was given a while ago. I'll have to dig them up....

    Have you passed them on to your neighborhood's poor orphans & ebola victims yet?
    I tend to split superhero comics fans into "People who like Krypto" and "People who don't like Krypto."

    Especially here in Alabama, where probably not many people can read the words, though presumably they can appreciate the pictures.

    I have it on good authority that The Confessor has been bunking with certain members of the royal family. They all had a luverly time at the wedding a few days ago.

    And I see that, except for LR's notification of the first thread's cessation, my own post about Son of Satan #8 was the final one to appear there.

    I dunno what the CBR equivalent of a No-Prize is, but I'll be watching my mailbox intently for its arrival.

    So Jez, is there a particular type for you...you know in a collecting kinda way. Hero, romance, funny animal, humour? Is it mainly the older, or just some chaotic system that makes sense only to you? (not a bad thing...bless us all for our own random collecting urges)

    Sorry if it seems like it but I aint taking the piss, just curious. You like some of the girlie stuff (oops my sexism slipped a bit there) but also seem to get into a lot of ummm... normal books too.

    Okay i'm just guna go off in the corner and bang my head a few times...
