Interesting. I wonder if Charlton was having a  crack at what Dell had tried a few years earlier.

In 1957 some Dells were distributed with 15c covers. Didn't last, generally regarded as a failure. The issues of Uncle Scrooge can be seen on GCD here.

Cool aren't they. Those Dells look tempting. I may have to adjust my variant antennae as it goes off every time I look at one (must.....resisist....too hard.....to find...)

And why not Hep. I name everything me, especially toys. Four of them ride around in my work van with me every day. We've got Monkey (the PG Tips one), Spidey, Trixie (the cowgirl off of Toy Story) and Reg the nodding penguin. Gotta have someone to talk to all day haven't you :)

Evening all :)

Two November 1960 cents copies here - Brides in Love #21 and Teen-Age Confidential Confessions #3:

Nice aren't they.

Neither should exist as a pence printed copy according to the chart notes:

The fact that both have the Miller 6d stamp seems to indicate that that will remain the case...

...probably...

See ya :)

"Your problems discussed by Dr Harold Gluck".

I'll need to see some credentials . . .

And is it just me that sees oversized women's heads in Charlton romance comics? They look odd.

Brides in Love?   That's Sketchy.  With who exactly? Inquiring minds want to know.  Was this a start of a trend we're experiencing now?

Hopefully a few more later :)
