Any Barberalla (or Jean Claude Forest) fans out there who can tell me more about this 4 issues comic series? I didn't get mine from a Virgin record store but maybe you did?

I'm always interested to see 'Jane' merchandise - here's a calendar from 1947. More pictures, and other work by Norman Pett, on the blog - why not check it out?

Oh interesting. This came out when I was in my wilderness years so I've never heard of it. But a bit of Steve Parkhouse makes this a very interesting one.

absolutely - lots of good artists involved but his work is the highlight of this for me; a hard set of comics to track down though

1999's 'Blue Moon' comic (by Tim Quinn) features great British comics talent like Steve Parkhouse, Charlie Adlard, Mario Capaldi, Art Wetherell & more - only 12 issues produced. Here's the start of my list of covers & contributors

about halfway through it so far - really enjoying the comic strips.

As ever, the non-comic strips needed another proof-read* - it's "The Sweeney" not "The Sweeny" and it's "Phil Gascoine" not "Phil Gascoigne"


*I'm sure they were proof-read plenty of times, but, y'know, it needed to be done again
