I've said it before, and I'll say it again. In real life, there's no way Daphne would be saying 'Clod' here. It would be a four letter word alright, but beginning with 'c' and ending in 't'. Yes, you've got it:

  Reveal hidden contents

Clot.

 

 

 

This lass is quite the handywoman isn't she?

I see she's been painting. Has a paint brush loaded with yellow paint. OK.

Wait on. She's got two paint tins near the brush.

One is a red can, yellow on the can's edge where the brush's excess is removed. Hmmm. The paint inside is black. Hmmm.

Other can? White on the outside. Yellow on the rim. Contents are white. Hmmm.

There's another can on top of the step ladder. It's got yellow dribbles on the outside but who knows what lies within.

Ahhh, the Charlton attention to detail.

Oh, and I see Joe is driving a woody. I wonder if that's the only one in this scene . . .

He's not driving. He's clinging to a cliff in what really is a gun turret and that upper background blue is the ocean ( Again). She's about to drop a paint bucket on what just looks like a woody. The paint bucket has yet to fall at least 5000 feet, or is it meters then? The battleship is covered up by that supposed tree. The next issue is likely explosive. On this side of the pond, alert mums everywhere destroyed this stuff when they found it.

Ha! I like it Duffman. Yes, I pontificate on Valerie's paint job in the opening post of this thread, albeit rather more affectionately. I like the cover so much I decided to gloss over the seemingly colour blind colourists endeavours. 

And your woody observation is right up my alley. And Valerie's too I shouldn't wonder :)

No, still haven't found anyone who know's anything about these 1964/5 'RV' 9d cover stamps:

"What?"

"The bullet"

"It came out the gun at a funny angle"

"Chrissakes Bob I'm trying to rob the purple bank here"

"Sorry Dave"

Gunfighter

 

"Dave?"

"Is that it?

"What?"

"No writing. Just 'Gunfighter' at the bottom?"

"Yeah. Thought I'd let the pictures do the talkin for a change"

"Oh, right. Cool"

"Hey, Kid"

"What?"

"I like your wall paper there"

"Oh, thanks. I got it in Argos. Do you like the colour?"

"Yeah, it's nice. Sort of sepia looking. Makes it look old like. That's not you in it is it?"

"Yeah. It goes mighty well with the bedroom furniture"

"You got pictures of yourself in your own bedroom, Kid?"

"Sure. What's wrong with that?"

"Well, I aint sure I should be saying..."

"No, come on. If you've got something to say, say it"

"Just a bit odd is all Kid..."

"JESUS H CHRIST WHAT'S THAT!"

"I don't believe it"

"You're not kidding woman, what is it!"

"What? Oh that? That's just a prehistoric monster from years back. Kid - did I turn the stove off before we left?"

"What!"

Never mind that, that horse is wearing pink lipstick. And he knows it.

Arnold Weet was out for revenge on the Funny Hat 'n' Glasses Gang, and the Kid was first on the list.

As luck would have it though, Weet fell drunk into a threshing machine whilst taking a piss out in Missouri. They buried his remains where he fell...

 

You know what's coming don't you...

Montana is soooo close to Alberta now isn't it?  Look at all the fossils found in Alberta!  Look at the artwork!  Keep the gun sites in mind!  There's a battleship behind that Velociraptor!. No small wonder these prognostications of the future are hard to find.   T-rex clearly chowed down on the Two gun Kid when we weren't looking. That's what my daughter explains her existence to her brother when he whines..

..and worse, in "too many wolves" we have a young Conan attacking what might just be Reed Richards moonlighting in his days of Junior college. Further evidence points to it being St Patrick's Day since Conan is clearly decked out in green. Richards also appears to have had neck reduction surgery at some point.  Keep digging!

see? Clearly a bullseye in a bomb site from 5000 feet with enhanced magnification . Animal rights activists should be relieved to see that no horses will be injured in this precision attack!  The Sombrero will likely need dry cleaning.

Afternoon :)

I mentioned earlier that I managed to prise a TRIA #32 15cv away from a fellow collectors hands. Nice of him.

Entombed it was....

v3.thumb.jpg.a494cd6d07c6991b1e9c6e4d0e664057.jpg

 

Can't have that. Not least because of the strange oil mark on the slab face. Not sure what that is. Maybe they have a name for it? I don't know hm

nr.PNG.390becb8b2562006d11357e85ac9384a.PNG

 

Anyway, very difficult to open this slab generation. You need some very specialist tools and equipment (see fig.1 below)

v2.thumb.jpg.15bc12fc5fd13378af0fad0921ddfa68.jpg
Fig.1

 

Ah, that's better :)

Look liz, I escapeded him @lizards2 :headbang: (liz is fond of an escapement you know)

v1.thumb.jpg.d234eeb402d4813a20b4ffaf6022bde8.jpg

 

Who wants a comic in a tomb? Can't read it can you. Or touch it. Sniff it. And look at this silly label:

1796358354_TexasRangersinAction3215cVariantCGCLabelCrop.thumb.jpg.2202107c6863c5defeadcd642a485f4a.jpg

 

"10 cent & 15 cent copies exist". Factually correct of course, but what would have been wrong with "15 cent variant"? It works for every other publisher :taptaptap:

Anyway, now he's free from his 'can't fit into the box with the other copies' dilemma, we now have seven lovely 15cvs, all sitting together in one fifteen cee vee box:

Yes, I know there's eight pictures, but I don't own the Fightin' Marines, do I. Poxy Fightin' Marines.

Still seven out of eight aint bad.

Eight out of nine is better though.

Tah-daaah!

So, eight fifteen see vees, all sitting in a box....

Oh, you've got to be Cheyenne Kidding me! :o

It's Cheyenne Kid #34:

I was talking to Ann the other day about how he likes to hide out. "He's just shy, Ann" I said. Besides, he lost in the dog test so he's probably a bit embarrassed and keeping his head down.

Anyway, another tick in the picture book (no cover numbers remember)...

book.thumb.jpg.cbdd8bd5d3634d18e48bb5ab7500052d.jpg

...and we're up to 375 pence copies of the 437 known to exist of the 833 projected to exist:

439.PNG.b2e4530d9f1dd8c8ded0eb386ee81b54.PNG

 

Of the aforementioned 15 Cee Vees, 9 confirmed of the 41 projected to exist:

15cv1.thumb.PNG.b04458ab86c899b9437dec98301f5e2c.PNG

15cv2.PNG.50e41b530b87dc7dea023f9bfbfad746.PNG

The hunt goes on.

But aside of the odd gate-crasher, no one gives a flying fart at a rolling doughnut. So this is my last post here.
