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.
Well, mine included a heartfelt and tender message written especially for ME, indicating that he regards you as just another ignorant yankee-doodle dandy, while I command his full respect with my elloquent use of "the Queen's English" and bad teeth.
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!!!
Mickey Mouse and Goofy Explore Energy Conservation (1978)
Sergio Aragones Massacres Marvel (1996)
definitely the Roger Moore Saint there isn't it.
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!
