    Well, I like 'em just fine.

    Which may not mean much -- I mean, I also like Brother Power the Geek just fine, after all -- but still ...
    I tend to split superhero comics fans into "People who like Krypto" and "People who don't like Krypto."
    Basically, if you miss the wonder of a dog flying around in a little Superman cape, you're in the wrong hobby.

    Thank you, thank you...you're too kind. My carpet really provides that mid-'80s, strip-light soaked, corporate office feel…which I'm sure we all find so comforting and homely.

    Now that E-Bay has replaced the second-hand bookshop around here, this doesn't happen often... But a charity sale this morning landed me these six comics from France:



    Sierra contains comics apparently translated from Spanish (as guns go ! Bang !); Le Saint is apparently of British origin as far as I can tell from the art style ***edit- I was wrong, there's a word balloon in Swedish in there!***; Lucky is a translated version of Archie. (It's however a funny version because unlike the Quebec-translated Archie, this one changes all the name. Would you believe that Jughead's name is "Serge"?).

    The big surprise in this lot is the Toutsy book. It has Archie on the cover, but contains a 40-odd pages story that I would bet was drawn by a young Michel Greg (creator of Achille Talon / Walter Melon). It's still a bit rough, but all the Greg mannerisms are there, and nobody has such a kinetic way of drawing a humor strip.

    All of that for $1.50, and it goes to charity. Wooo-hoooo!!!

    You're correct, there's a word balloon in Swedish in there.

    awesome Roquefort Raider! charity sales can be a good source of finding older comics (as well as some of the newer ones) depending on size and where they are sourcing the comics from.

    no, uk and european (i.e. continental) comics are completely different both stylistically and in terms of content. those have the gaudy european style covers which i used to see when i went on holiday in europe. those and funny animals/disney comics the europeans love those. and i bet roger moore didnt get a 'euro' for his likeness being used on the cover!

    we brits are probably europeans to the rest of the world, but we like to live in isolation from the rest of them unless there is a war.

    Great comics guys! Today I've got a DC Horror lot...gotta love some of these covers (although the stories inside aren't always as good)!

    The Weird Mystery #2 (w/Titanic on cover) had a nice surprise....a Jack Kirby story!
