Suggestions / Jane Bond secret agent release?
« on: 01 October, 2021, 02:27:53 PM »
As there is a lot of talk about if James Bond could be female why don't Rebellion release as part of the Treasury of British Comics the stripe Jane Bond Secret Agent which was published in the comic Tina/Princess Tina between 1967 & 1970 drawn by Mike Hubbard.
This could show the world how forward thinking British comics were back then allowing a young women to be a secret agent and the artwork of the great Mike Hibbard as well

« on: 15 September, 2021, 09:10:37 PM »
Just been to the UK premier of Disney+'s new show Y the Last Man based on  Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra 2002-08 Vertigo comic of the same name set in a post-apocalyptic world where a mysterious cataclysmic event simultaneously killed every mammal with a Y chromosome but for one man, Yorick Brown

The first 3 episodes will be released of 22nd September with the other episodes being released every  Wednesday.

Not much happens in the first episode as it is just setting up the world and the characters just before the men all die, but it is well acted feels like it is going to be a good series

Books & Comics / Rick Random: Fleetway Picture Library Classics
« on: 29 August, 2021, 03:46:25 PM »
I'm not sure if this has been mentiond before but whilst in Gosh Comics! I noticed that they had a copy of Rick Random: Fleetway Picture Library Classics. Probably best remembered here as the page filler in the early annuals. Even though not released by Rebellion it still has the Treasury of British Comics logo on the back cover
