I've updated my (complete?) guide to the reprints of the Warhammer comic (1998-2004) as I've found another reprint volume - that's 58 in total now! Stories set in the #40k universe and in classic #WFRP

Norman Pett produced a number of 'Jane (of the Daily Mirror') books - mainly illustrations, but some comic strips in them. This one's from 1942. Contains some NSFW images (hence posting on a Sunday)

Ah I am filled with Nostalgia for when you could pick up fanines for 50p a shot - the late 90s and early 00s were my Glory days of hunting these things out and that copy of Hellfire was a Grail find I never did get, along with Masters of Infinity with the Bolland cover (I think!)

There was an eBay seller who came along and started buying them up and reselling them for a 5er a pop and it killed my interest, sadly.  Should have persisted!

I got into fanzine collecting in the early 2000s and got some great things, but, yeah, not so much now

Want to read Alan Moore's 2nd ever interview? Want to see just why David Roach's artwork was so good he was snapped up by 2000ad after he'd drawn only 4 comic strips? Then this is the fanzine (published in 1984) is for you - deep pockets required!

Giles Richards from the Guardian joins the book club to discuss the Wagner, Grant & Bolland classic Judge Death stories in the new Essentials collection. Picking a grail page will be tricky.

talk of 'Powerman' on this episode makes me reach for my notes (in case anyone else is interested) about who did what on 'Powerman' - all details here...
