I've occasionally looked at publisher Celebrity comics in the past... Count Duckula is here The wisdom of gnomes is here Wanted is here And there may be other titles out there just waiting to be discovered. One such title that was new to me was their Rupert comic from 1989/90. There are a LOT of Rupert comics out there so I'm currently parking this in the 'too difficult' to deal with category. I'll return to it at some point I'm sure. In the meantime if you can help with any details do just get in touch. Celebrity comic, Rupert, issue 1, 18th October 1989, 50p Celebr ..read more

UPDATED: Artist sketchbooks

I've enjoyed looking at the various programmes that have been produced to support all sorts of comic conventions over the years - one of the highlights for me in attending such a show is to meet the artists and to (just maybe) come away with an example of their art. If you can't afford a piece of original artwork then maybe a sketchbook from them is the next best thing? I've looked at many of these sketchbooks individually but I thought it was worth bringing all these posts together - and adding a few new images in too. Enjoy! UPDATED - now with extra Glenn Fabry sketchbooks I've looked at ..read more

Here's a title (from 1999) well worth looking out for - having said that it seems so only come up for sale rarely so you may well be waiting a while for issues to appear. Anyway, the concept was a kids comic edited by Tim Quinn & Gillian Baverstock (Enid Blyton's eldest daughter) and looking at updating/continuing classic fairy tales. A dozen issues in total, here's all the details I have about all the various (very good!) creators involved... Details of issue 11 are now to hand and have been updated below Blue Moon, issue 1, 30th March-12th April 1999 contributors include Phil Gasco ..read more
