: EBay-UK Tharg signed letter late 70's early 80's
: EddieHitler 22 August, 2018, 02:56:22 PM
I was wondering if anyone had caught the auction on Ebay for a late 70's early 80's signed letter congratulating the recipient on winning a postal order?  It sold for just over £50!  Not bad...

I have a letter from Big E from circa 1979.  I wrote to him complaining I had not been able to obtain issue number 3 of Tornado and asked if I could have a copy please I also included the money for it.  A lot latter when I had by then given up on Tornado somewhere around issue 6 I received a very kind letter, typed, in the post with issue number 3 and the free gift!  It was signed Big E but I suspect it was probably one of the typist or whoever else managed the post/subscriptions.  I still have the letter and the comic but not the free gift....

I'm sure if somebody has an autograph of Big E's human alter-ego we'd be able to compare, er, 'i's (both names have 'B', 'G', and 'E', but not in the same case!)

I will scan it and put it on the site next week if anyone is interested, bored or even old enough to remember?

When did I become such a nerdy old fart?  :)

Not as exciting as the 2000ad letterhead but then again it had a short life so maybe the stationary never got sorted?

Why can you view the letter when only signed in? Sorry
