I've always wanted a complete set of the Malory Towers series by Enid Blyton.

Just got off the phone with this chap and he is going to hook me up with a set in paper back and a set in hard cover.

He has a lot of the old annuals too (my favourite was Mandy)

What comics did you like to read the best? You might be able to find them here

The Beano, I would love it when they brought out the hard back xmas annual....my brother back home told me the other day he had found them in the attic boxes of 'em. I have some really old comics from my dads era real early sketches of desperate dan etc.

My all time fav's were the 'commando' comic books the first one I ever bought was 9 pence.

Bunty and Judy - I'm afraid a lot of you have probably never heard of them

Yosser - Hubbys very into Viz these days, but it used to be The Beano - in amongst the personal things we had shipped a couple of years ago is a large cardboard box FULL of Beano comics. He even has a large collection of Plastic Beano Characters dutifully collected and delivered by his sister Myra when Macdonalds were doing them over in England a couple of years ago......

"warlord" yes I had those too....great fun.

Just after I got off line last night my mum called from England, she was just about to start a sentance, when I jumped in "Hey, remember my commando books do we still have them? or did you throw them away?.....she said its ok I stored them into some plastic boxes along with your Beanos .....Thank god for Mum's

I remember when VIZ came out, I was about 11 or 12 and my best mate used to do a paper-round but he would also stop by my house for us to read it and have a laugh before it actually got to the customer.

Hi

I remember Bunty & Judy!!! I loved Bunty beacuse of the cut out dolls & clothes on the back page!! I also had Diana and then Jackie! I had the whole hard back sets of The Secret Seven and The Famous Five books but when I left home my mum gave them all away to charity shops! I could have cried!!

I used to love "Shoot" and "whiza and Chips"

Anybody remember those?

My 12 year old son is really into Adrian Mole at the moment, which I also read and loved at his age.
