Does anyone use the new coloured dividers?

Very nice red ones here, they go well with the Charlton colouring :)

Ahhh, the Hot Rod comics. A genre I never could grasp and one that seems to be almost solely the purview of Charlton.

This suite of, let's face it, forgettable books brings to the fore an interesting side-light. I recall reading many years ago (I think it was the Steranko "History" books) an assertion that publishers told writers that the words "FLICK" and "CLINT" were verboten for fear the lettering would run/blur and an unthinkable and unprintable word might result.

Issue #64 would seem to bear out their concerns. Take a look at the "CLINT" underneath the "Sabotage!" blurb.

In isolation it definitely has "problems".

Anyway, carry on "I", regards to Marwood and how many folk on this Board would know who Rod Hull and Emu were?

No love for red dividers I see... Or pictures of books everywhere. Shame. Still, it's only a comic book forum.

I tell you who would appreciate them though...

"Take that!"

"Ooff! Yeah, they're OK, but I'm more of a Boyzone man myself. Now, would you stop punching me please Wyatt? There's dynamite about to go off and everything."

"I'll die first before I let you send me to prison again!"

"OK, that's fine. Die, and then I'll send you to prison again"

"That's a bit silly isn't it Wyatt?"

"Simmer down Mamie, I know what I'm doing here"

"I'm just saying, if he's dead, then there's no point putting him in prison is there? That's all"

"Listen to the lady Wyatt, she knows what she's saying!"

"Look, I'm the f****** Marshall around here alright? Haven't you got some bread to bake or something? Leave the capturing of murderers to me, and go and make a pie woman!"

"Oh, now you're just being sexist Wyatt. I expect better of you, being the Marshall an all"

"Would you just shut the........"

No Wyatt Earp fans in then... :sorry:

When I started this thread I had evidence of 362 of a possible - if I've got my sums right - 832 Charlton pence copies. They slowly trickle in, and we're now up to 377:

ch1.PNG.11fc9cea4a21f66a2809d5e810f27545.PNG

Not sure why we needed a big 9d in ink there, given the existing 9d price box! The postie's a bit cruel here isn't he? I'm sure Pat would have broken the rules for such a pretty lady. Nice hand holding the letters too. Mr G (I can't call him by his first name here) should have trained Ditko on hands really.

I've been researching Charlton pence books for quite some time now and it makes you appreciate just how uncommon they are. I've found less than half of the projected numbers despite some serious digging - 377 out of 832. You'd be forgiven for thinking that many cover dates may not exist but all the evidence indicates that they do. There are no 'consistent' date gaps like there are with Marvel. No dates stand out as being unlikely to have pence copies. So it seems it's just a case of watching and waiting. Slowly.

Judging by the overall responses to my pence threads I'm assuming that I'm the only person in the world who is making the effort to record them in this way. Being a bit of a loner in general, that suits me in a way. I'd love it if a few others were as excited by all this as I am, but that's often the way it is in life and comics have always been a solitary exercise for me. 

I shall keep going though, and maybe one day someone will have their OMG moment, when they stumble across all this information during a google search. Dell is next. Flipping difficult to track though, given the three month cover dates. And as for Four Color, no rhyme nor reason to their date vs numbering patterns! I've made a fairly good fist of it though I think. We shall see (morlar.png.db4bed698cc15d81b02556d6d662319a.png)

Anyway, I see a fish wiggling in my Archie thread - shock of shocks - so it's not all one way traffic :)
