Anyone any pics of one ‘in use’ - showing how progs attach.

Does the standard design allow the end of year prog to be included?
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

Thank you for the heads up!

This what you mean? It has 28 threads so plenty of space for the extras that come out in addition to the weekly prog. As you can see, I tend to start from the Christmas prog as it more often than not begins the new year rather than wrapping up the last stories. I'm holding up the FCBD prog with my fingers since its smaller.

The threads are sprung or elaeticated or something. You basically pull it and pass the prog through so the thread holds the stapled spine. Just ordered 5, which I suppose is 1% of the print run.

Didn't realise it had changed so much.  I only have one thrill containment binder - a grey one with the the early 1990s logo.  I couldn't afford to buy more than one, so used it for my Toxic!s instead (which is where they sit to this day - wish Fear Teachers had been completed).

Oh, and the point of this reply.  It doesn't have string, it has metal rods that you thread the comics through.

Just realised I never bought the 2017 model. Bought 2 each of the 2015 & 2016 ones, so will do so again.

No problem! Would be interested to see what the old-style one was like. I'm working my way backwards as well as forwards.

TCU's look great, but offer no psocid protection- gonna have to continue with the resealable polypropylene bags.
