  1. I'm thinking it was maybe another monster reprint title. But, again... blueberries...
  2. I've seen these. I'm thinking there might be a third like this, but I still haven't found my memory stick since moving house. It has all of my scans and spreadsheets on it & I'm sure I made note of another, closer in time to JIM 13. I could, of course, be stuffed full of wild blueberry muffins...
  3. That's what I meant, I just didn't want to diminish your contribution. And, you're doing that name thing again. You've got me trying to check the label in my underpants...
  4. Surprised I'm the first to comment here... Thanks, Steve & well done for all your hard work on this. I've enjoyed watching your research develop over the past couple of years. This will prove to be an important addition to our hobby. Can't wait for the article in Overstreet! Chin, chin!
  5. It's a great way to learn another language. I just came back from a holiday in Austria. Seven days of "Die Simpsons" in German! They could maybe do a better job of casting the voice artists, but "D'oh" is a multi-lingual phrase.
  6. Ah. That makes sense. Possibly someone wanted to teach their kids Spanish the lazy way. Also, I now want to go to Belize to search for lost Golden Age gems left by the troops.
  7. Hmmm... Trying to think of an overseas British Territory with a Spanish speaking population... Anguilla? Gibraltar maybe?
  8. I think they probably paid some of them per stamp. Here's one from my collection:
  9. I like bound volumes, but I never see them in the wild. See 'em all damn day at work (British Library), but I get into trouble if I take them home. I probably would, if I weren't going on holiday. Thanks for the consideration, though.
  10. I noticed that too. I want it, very badly, but I'm a chintzy bugger. 50 quid is more than I can afford just before my hols.
  11. Here's an odd one... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MARVEL-DAREDEVIL-SILVER-AGE-COMPLETE-BOUND-VOLUME-ORIGINALS-26-50-COMPLETE-UK/283493018799?hash=item4201802caf:g:lqoAAOSwsZtc5Vk5 Sounds like the seller is the one who had them bound.
  12. You're right, of course. I just can't get over the idea that somewhere out there is a Marvel Collection with Captain Britain 8 in it. Or a Double Double with something like Conan 1 or Hulk 102 or something. Silly, I know, but this is the border between a keen interest and a dangerous (irritating) obsession.
  13. Niiiice! And very hard to find in that condition in a pence variant.
  14. I thought that's what you meant. I hope I didn't come across as overly pedantic. I have a similar pre-coffee condition, we only differ in quantity. I'm foggy until about halfway through my second pot.
