Title: Paw's profferings
Post by: paw broon on May 14, 2012, 08:21:13 PM
The first entries in the Non-English language section are 11 of the 13 issues from the Spanish 1940 series of winged heroes and villains.  Plus, Grey Domino #7 from Australia in the British and Australian section.

A couple of teensy problems.

1) You have uploaded zip files but in that is just a .cbr and in that are the comic book pages.

You just need to upload .cbr or .cbz .....

A cbz is just a renamed zip file and .cbr is just a renamed .rar file. So sometimes you will see .zip and they are ok because inside are just the comicbook pages. So what you have done is add another layer around so in real terms you have
one file .zip - > one file .cbr (really a rar) -> the pages
we need
one file (take your pick of .zip/.rar/.cbr/.cbz) -> the pages
Think of like a Russian Doll and you have put on another outer case. And I think you may have uploaded a couple recently like that as I have fixed a handful.

Second "problem" is that the .cbr (inside the zip) has foreign characters (accents etc) along with spaces. I think this is the way that you got it? The .zip is nicely named using a-z. I think that the chances are they will not cause any problems but if I was making a mission critical system then I certainly would just stick to standard characters and ideally use '-' or '_' instead of spaces.

So leave it with me I'l sort them out now .... so they'll end up being the inner .cbr file but I'll use the .zip name (but keep the .cbr extension.

In other words just to be safe could we have the foreign language uploads using a-z 0-9 and also not put them in an additional outer zip?

BTW the description, title  and everything else you put on the page use the proper non-english characters. I have coded to allow for them and if they cause me a problem then I'll just have to jolly well sort it out!

I think the non-English section has really big potential. So keep them coming!

First of all, apologies.  Second, the curse of ignorance strikes again.  Third, what does all that mean?  I have no idea how to create a cbz or cbr file, or how to change the extension name.  Sorry to cause further confusion but wouldn't a foreign language comic have foreign characters?  I'm probably not understanding all this but don't waste time on me, I'll look for tutorials online.  What I do understand is not to put them in another zip file,  Needless to say, I didn't know they were already in a zip file.  Apart from that, I'm happy.  Now, are you sure I should keep going just in case I foul up again before I get this stuff right?

I'm reading it all over again.  And again.

I should add that, some of the stuff I have stockpiled consist of series of jpegs? so I have to figure out how to collect them in correct fashion.

Love how you call them, "teensy problems".

I'll get there.

Paw ... I am talking just about the file names. Not the images in them, or the descriptions you put up.

Am I sure you should keep uploading??? Well .. let me think about it Spanish Vampire comics ... that are proving really popular? I think they are really cool and so do lot of other people! A GREAT addition to the site. So yes ... keep them coming and I'll sort out any problems.

Right so the jpegs ... you put them in a zip! And then you have created a .cbz. Simples! Just make sure that the file names are alphabetic so they appear in order.

Paw, you are still #1 on my list for Technical Director .. and I am 100% sure you'll get there

O.K. Let's see what further chaos I can cause.  A coupe of hours getting my head round some complicated French grammar this morning and now I have to re-read the computer tutorials I found online.  Spanish vampires, eh?  Going down well?  Great.  Just to finally prove how tasteless I can be, I have many Mexican superhero wrestler comics and some photonovels.  A tad too far?  Actually, I have to check dates and indicia before I do any more with them.

Post by: paw broon on May 16, 2012, 06:37:23 PM
Just an update on my education.  Having followed to the letter the instructions on how to create a cbz file, I get as far as clicking ok on 7zip and get the warning that access is denied.  Instructions on another tutorial were for clicks on buttons I don't have. Nothing I do allows me to rename as cbz. This is not making sense, so I'm completely stuck.  To add to the problem, my old printer/scanner just doesn't work with this new machine.  It's so old that the Epson site doesn't recognise the model.  More expense.

Hi Paw,
If you can make a ZIP file you are likely fine for uploading.
If you are using a PC, right click on the ZIP file and choose 'rename' and change the ".zip" to ".cbz"
Title: Re: Paw's profferings
Post by: paw broon on May 17, 2012, 08:46:24 AM
Thanks for the help.  I'm doing something wrong 'cos 7Zip doesn't give me that option.  I think.

Paw Your sufferings have been everyone else's gain.

I had a thought when I was doing the washing up (my life is not all rock and roll). 5 minutes work and 2 lines of code and now ... drum roll

CB+ now only delivers .cbz or .cbr. If the file is uploaded as a .rar .... then when it is downloaded it comes as a .cbr .... if a file is uploaded as a .zip it is downloaded as a .cbz.

In other words you do not need to rename .rar or .zip (for this site anyway) and also it means that it will stop the confusion when people download a .zip or a .rar.

So THANKS Paw!

See what washing the dishes will do for you, apart from wash day hands.  A couple of hours in the garden restored my equilibrium.  Thanks all.
Rock'n'roll.  I was on a train from Dumfries to Glasgow 40 odd years ago to see The Stones at Greens and Keith and Charlie walked past my seat.  Yes, in those days they travelled by train. I was too flabbergasted to say anything and too well on to get up and find where the rest of them were.  Concert was exceptional.  Groundhogs supported and they were the loudest band I've heard and there's only 3 of them.  Cherry Red - look it up, load it down, turn it up and jump about.
Back to comics.

I have yet to get into the garden ... every time I go to do it the weather gets bad and when it is good I am deep in summat here. I have I think 60+ chillies to plant out

I guess you must have seen Alex Harvey? I am really not into music nowadays, but I loved his stuff. I never saw him but his Deliah must rank as one of the all time great covers. In my book the greatest was Roy Orbison and that coming from an ex-punk (well ex semi-punk).

But WOW!!! That is great even though I don't understand a word of it. Keep them coming and we'll somehow check that they are long term OK. Personally, I really can't see that they will cause a problem and are a really fun addition to the site.

Flying Santo now up. Just trying to arrange another rocket story.  These photo novels were quite the thing in Central America and Italy.  One of the legendary super-criminals was Killing (Kilink) and his stories were in photo format.  He also had a number of dead cheesy films, all made in Turkey.   The all time best (imo) super criminal is Kriminal.  The guy with the skeleton costume, long running series and 2 films to his name.  Kriminal was in comics, many of which were by Magnus.

Schoolgirl now up as well.  I couldn't organise a boys storypaper in time, so you'll have to make do with Miss Redfern, Bessie Bunter and Co. for the time being while I try to convert pdf's to jpegs.

C.C. was an original Aus. hero, created by John Dixon.  Here's a link to the Lambiek page.  Tim Valor is a nice looking comic but C.C. is a genuine superhero.  You'll see the illo. of Captain Strato, well I've never even seen a copy of that title and it intrigues me.

I first remember seeing Mexican photo novels when I was a kid.  Having a large Hispanic population here in Arizona they would work their way up here from neighboring Mexico for that community.  I never saw any with Santo though.  Almost all I ran across were of the soap opera or romance variety which I had little interest in as a kid.

I was in L.A 2 years running, quite a few years ago now and found street stalls selling Sensacional de Luchas and Tinieblas comics.  Bought lots.  There were also Guerreros del Asphalt? and a martial arts comic and seedy romance titles.  All were pocket sized but no Santo or Blue Demon. Or Fantomas, for that matter.
An experience, catching the bus from Universal City to downtown.  A completely different world.  Paris, Barcelona, Amsterdam, London, Cologne - edgy in places but easy. L.A.? weird, strange and exotic.

Slick Fun Album is now up. (Well, as soon as Mark sorts out my mistakes). Please have a look at what some British annuals were like back then.  Swan's stuff was a bit different and is nowadays very obscure.  Apart from humour strips, they also featured detective, s.f., adventure and costumed hero strips.

Absolutely a pile of The Champion story paper, now that Mark has them separated out form the original upload - ta muchly, featuring breathtaking tales of Colwyn Dane, Detctive; Rockfist Rogan and more.
A couple of issues of The Thriller, weekly "pulp but in tabloid format and with excellent, moody, threat laden illos.  Still a couple more to sort out.  5 Romance Series prose pocket size from 1945/6.

Is that a challenge?
Title: Re: Paw's profferings
Post by: paw broon on June 09, 2012, 03:46:48 PM
Not being very competitive, I worry about challenges.  It's just that I'm incredibly curious about all the comics that lie behind the known stuff such as Spidey. Batman et. al. and love turning up those wee gems and the other dross.  But if I find them online, it means that someone else also knows about them, is prepared to share and so we all keep it going and available.
It's like mining or drilling for oil, except our gold isn't black, it's 4 coloured (or b&w in my case)
I was at a comic mart in Glasgow today.  Good fun - coffee was drunk, rolls were eaten and comics were bought.  Lots of good patter and I turned up, amongst other stuff, a copy of Adventure (the British one) with part of an illustrated serial of The Outlaw, a masked man story. All in all a good day.
Title: Re: Paw's profferings
Post by: paw broon on June 10, 2012, 04:09:26 PM
OK, I own up, I got that last entry wrong and said Adventure when I should have said Hotspur.
Today, when I should have been packing my case, I uploaded AKA#10 to fanzines.  Bill Hamilton had knocked his pan out after yesterday's mart when he rushed home to dig the mag. out. Then scanned it and e-mailed it to me.  After all his hard work, I felt I should upload it ASAP.
An Alan Davis back cover, letters from weel kent faces, interesting articles make it a good read.  But then, I'm biased as I wrote some of it.

A couple of days ago, umpteen issues of a terrific Spanish title, Platillos Volantes (Flying Saucers) and part of a western series, Mendoza Colt.  Today, at long last,  a Spanish superhero title I've been looking for for years, Aguilla Negra - issue #1 plus a collection of his stories with covers on the last page. Also, Aladino from Santiago de Chile with the Invisible Man and a text story of Super Condor.
Now if only I can track down, El Misterioso X, (big guy, cape, wings.)  Something that has eluded me for years.

Title: Re: Paw's profferings
Post by: narfstar on August 07, 2012, 11:31:04 PM
Paw you have made one awesome Spanish section! Sure makes me wish I read Spanish. BTW, I think I would classify El Puma as a western like Black Diamond. Unless I am missing something.
Title: Re: Paw's profferings
Post by: paw broon on August 08, 2012, 08:07:37 AM
This has always interested me.  Do we classify stories set in cowboy times as westerns.  Well, yes.  But masked mystery men appear in many time frames and there are many "cowboy"/"western" heroes who are masked mystery men, secret identities and all.  A slew of them in Spanish and other European comics as well as American and I tend to think that the hero should be the main factor in deciding how to classify the episode.  Gene Autry is so obviously a western as is Jace Parson but many of the stories are set not in "cowboy" times as we would normally think of it, e.g. Cheyenne and Range Rider but in automobile times, making these stories less western, more action hero stories but we wouldn't call more modern setting stories other than westerns.
The masked "cowboy" keeping his i/d secret will normally be classified by me as a mmm. 
There is another example, that of the historical hero.  Again many in Spanish comics.  The action is in, say, medieval times but the hero is masked.  Is this a historical "romance" or a mmm story  A bit of both but as the attraction for me is the guy in the mask (or flashy supersuit with some sort of emblem) then it's a mmm story.
I'm sure there are big flaws in my argument and I look forward to being demolished.  You see, the attraction of the masked/costumed hero is the big thing for me.
Title: Re: Paw's profferings
Post by: narfstar on August 08, 2012, 10:44:44 PM
I have never been a fan of the powerless "superhero" other than Batman who transcends. So unless the western masked man has some "extra" power I tend to think of it as a western. I would call Ghost Rider a superhero but not most others.
Title: Re: Paw's profferings
Post by: paw broon on August 09, 2012, 09:14:01 AM
This is good and I hope others jump on with their ideas but perhaps in the great scheme of things it's not that important.  Many years ago, I used to think that all those GA and British characters with gaudy costumes and/or masks but with no powers were a bit naff.  But the longer and the more I read their adventures and also the stories of masked costumed mystery men in non-American comics, I realised that they could be just as good fun and so, the idea of the masked mystery (wo)man came to be as important as the powered heroes.  Inconsistencies in continuity muddy the issue as well.  Take The Black Terror.  He had super powers but as the run went on he gradually became just a costumed mystery man, showing little or no signs of strength or invulnerability.  Black Hood; Black Cat; Mr Scarlet; Billy the Cat; Guerrero del Antifaz; Phantom; Green Arrow etc. not a superpower in sight but I love them.  Masked mystery men to me are not only cowboys or Crusaders or schoolboys, they change into something a bit above the everyday level and those masks and costumes take them to a different level for me.  Bearing in mind this is all escapist fiction and nothing to do with real life.  But I still enjoy a Gene Autry story alongside Billy the Cat and Sexton Blake alongside Mr. Scarlet.
I wonder if I should copy this into the Comics section to see if we get any other ideas?
Title: Re: Paw's profferings
Post by: narfstar on August 09, 2012, 10:47:36 AM
No harm in getting double exposure. I can't say I do not enjoy the old no powered hero stories. I just have a fundamental problem with them that will always bother me and somewhat diminish the pleasure.
Even more the powerless sidekick. Robin has to be one of the least practical ideas in the world unless we bring in Cat-Man's partner Kitten when she was younger. A little girl would not strike a lot of fear into many criminals. The Phantom and Tarzan always transcended their state in much the same way as Batman. Green Arrow I consider powered when he was using all his trick arrows. BTW Paw have you ever noticed how many "powered" heroes have been waylaid in stories by being hit in the back of the head. This was the Achilles heel in many GA sagas. Then of course the villain failed to take advantage of the situation and off the hero. The villain either took off or put the hero in some elaborate device to kill them from which the escaped (holy Batman TV show Paw)

One of my own for a change.  This is an extract from an annual.  I have bits from annuals rather than the whole annual in some cases.  Some were photocopied years ago.  So I've scanned these few pages to give us a Falcon story with art by George Heath.  Hope you all enjoy it.

Post by: paw broon on September 30, 2012, 04:55:55 PM
Since I skived off and went on holiday, I thought I should take a run at some uploads to make up for lost time.  So, I found some extracts from British comics and annuals.  Harris Tweed was in Eagle, as was Albert Hall, the office boy.  Lovely, eccentric strips.  P.C. 49 is a great favourite of mine and we have 2 of the 3 feature films that were made but the radio shows are impossible to find.  Here are 3 P.C. 49 stories even though they're not by the best artist.  Another Silent Three story - sorry the page size is small but I couldn't increase them without blurring the text a bit. And, A Terry Brent story, featuring his young female sidekick.  You'd never guess these strips are from School Friend - so typical.  Plus Bill Cody, a Spanish landscape series and a couple of issues of Los Vikingos, another Spanish comic, a couple of days ago.
Title: Re: Paw's profferings

Post by: paw broon on October 09, 2012, 03:50:33 PM
At long last we have some examples of Blonde Panther but in her Spanish, censored version.  The Spanish government took exception to her skimpy costume, so required a skirt to be added.  The Italian comics didn't bother with that nonsense.  Also, the comic strips from a School Friend annual from 1957 and 2 issues of a Mexican title, Aventuras de la Vida Real, from late '50's. There is also a new addition in the Hindi section.
Title: Re: Paw's profferings
Post by: MarkWarner on October 11, 2012, 12:21:55 PM
I think the censors were still not happy with the Blonde Panther.

If you notice the first two we see nice shapely legs and also a glimpse of the top of her stockings .. subsequent ones you are lucky to catch the very bottom of her knee. A bitter disappointment .. at this point I think I'll get my coat ...

From one extreme to the other.  Check out Princesita Carolina in the Spanish section for innocent fairytale sort of stuff.
I think the issue of Hardi uploaded today to the French section should be o.k.  I thought it was a good read.
Now, if only I can find more Blonde Panther, Italian style. But, given the effect it seems to have had on Mark, perhaps I shouldn't bother.

I've found 6 issues of Nelson Lee from 1920 which lead up to the Christmas issue.  One of the issues is a classic haunted house mystery and it was a tradition in the '20's and '30's in many of these storypapers to have a Christmas mystery, often with a ghost and/or haunted house. Keep for nearer Noel, perhaps? These are in the Dime Novels section.
Plus #1 of El As de la Trapecia in the Spanish section.
Title: Re: Paw's profferings
Post by: paw broon on November 08, 2012, 05:25:30 PM
Recently, #1 of El Caballero Fantasma, 1947, an early historical masked man series.  I think I'm on the track of more.  Well, I think it's exciting.  Also, in Dime Novels, Storypapers, a few British storypapers with stories by Charles Hamilton, under a couple of pen names - Frank Richards and Hilda Richards.  Plus 5 issues of El Libertador, another Spanish historical adventure series.
Amending this to add, 8 new issues of L'Agent 1XE-13.  Nice covers on some of these issues.

A second Catalan comic, this time part of a history series with an illustrated story of the first railway and an episode of a text strip recounting Catalonian history.  The logo on the cover reads"with the compliments of history". Nice.
Amending this to add that Marvel Magazine #1 is now available in the Portuguese section.  This is a Brazilian Fawcett reprint form 1953.

Some of you should find this interesting.  From my own collection, a 1946, French, b&w reprint of a Masked Marvel story, which I bought last time in Paris.  At only 8 pages and measuring 8 1/4 inches by 6 inches, it reflects the paper shortage on Europe after WW2.  In the translation, he's called The Masked Man.   It would be good if anyone could tell me which American issue the story is from.

Right, this has taken me a long time - too long perhaps.  You might have noticed that the AMOK section under Spanish comics was empty.  There was a copy of #1 there ages ago but there was something wrong with the file so we took it off.  And could I find another copy?  Nae luck!  Then, suddenly, I fell over copies of #s 1,2 & 3, whose links hadn't disappeared from Mediafire.  Now they are on site and that was a long story which is probably of little interest to anyone but me.  They are nice comics.

Apart from 12 issues of Castor the Invincible, which I think I've spelt wrongly on the title, now up are another 2 Thunderbolt Jaxon stories and a Silent Three adventure.  All in the UK section.  I must apologise for the quality on the TJ scans as they were scanned from old, not very good, photocopies and with my limited skills, that's the best I can do with them.  But, hopwfully, the rarity of the strips will outway the poor state they are in - unless someone can have a footer about and improve them?   ;)

I've just uploaded 3 examples of Dixon Hawke Library, supplied by hoover.  These are great additions to the site and certainly compliment the Sexton Blake entries.  Hawke was also, unofficially, known as The Scottish Detective.  There were over 500 issues of the Library and his exploits appeared in other publications.   Thanks hoover, this is good stuff.
Title: Re: Paw's profferings
Post by: paw broon on January 30, 2013, 05:14:50 PM
A new Silent Three story scanned from very old cuttings from a School Friend Annual.  This one is a crossover in which The Silent Three meet The Grey Shadows.  I've tried to improve the quality but I'm at the limits of my very slight abilities. My guide doesn't list the annuals but I have just found a frontispiece which, I'm sure, is for this story and the date is 1952.
After quite a search, I've found some other old photocopies and cuttings of Silent Three stories - much like the recent Thunderbolt Jaxon stories.  But they need a bit of work.

Actually, there are a few winged heroes in British storypapers and libraries.  We've already talked about The Night Hawk here, somewhere, and Flying Justice made an appearance in the early part of the 20th century.  The Human Bat had a book all to himself and in the '50's (?) a bloke called Black Wing had a couple of stories. 
I think I might be on the trail of another episode of Black Whip - just need my pal to part with the paper for a few days.

But I read the comments of Superman and Ozman (thanks Ozman for pointing out that it is an Aus comic, this version being printed in N.Z.) and I noticed the remark that so many British comics were so amateurish.  Now this is interesting and there is no arguing that there is a lot of poor quality art in British comics but there is so much that is good and, in many cases quite excellent.  A lot of it we can't host on CB+ but there are already examples of Ron Turner, Jim Holdaway, Harry Banger, George Heath, Bill Lacey (a particular favourite of mine - particularly on Blackshirt)  and much more.  Perhaps I might suggest a closer look at the UK/Aus section. As a start, read this copy of Express Weekly:-
http://comicbookplus.com/?dlid=28516
And then this:-
http://comicbookplus.com/?dlid=26644
while bearing in mind that this standard was kept up in umpteen different titles every week.
 Most countries have many examples of poor or amateurish artwork in their comics.
Just a thought and I'd be interested in any comments.

Certainly American comics had their share of amateurish/crude artwork.  There was a point in time, in fact, where DC wouldn't even reprint some of their GA material because they were too embarrassed by the crudity of it.
Still I find a charm and energy that appeals to me at times in even some of these "lesser" works.

Post by: paw broon on March 10, 2013, 05:19:08 PM
Mister X in the French section will please some of you - costumed hero with an atomic belt.
And Yelmo Negro in the Spanish section.  I have to admit to a bit of selfishness here as the comic is very obscure and in very poor nick.  You could spit through the paper it's so fragile and there is a lot of shine through, so this way, I shouldn't have to open it again. I know nothing about it and I've had a look in a couple of Spanish comics history books, to no avail.  It's a big landscape comic measuring 12&1/2 inches wide by 8&1/2 inches high.
I bought it some years ago in Barcelona.
If anyone can shed light on it's history.....................

I find it strange that many comic lovers have such high standards, refusing to look at material they consider sub-par. I guess if the only reason you're reading comics is pure entertainment value, then it makes sense to stick with what you know. But then why bother looking at any comics from a different time? These are bound to conform to aesthetic norms outside ones experience in the here and now.

But if you're going to go up that comic book Nile, to find its source, then you ought to prepare yourself to see some weird and alien sights that challenge your view of the world.

And you can't really appreciate the leaps and bounds (or the failures) made in the development of comics, without knowing the base level that they started at. If all you ever look at is the good stuff, then you can't really understand how good it is, unless you at least sample some of the bad and mediocre stuff.

I consider it something of a minor miracle that so many Golden Age comics had good art and stories, because comics were selling like hotcakes back then. There was no real incentive for the fly-by-night publishers to hire good talent and put out good comics--because they could make just as much money (maybe more) publishing bad ones.

I'm keenly interested in the history of Canadian comics, even though any real good talent usually ended up going somewhere else, where they could make more money.  A lot of Canadian comics had second rate art, but even the bad artists tended to improve over time. Whenever I find a Canadian comic where the artists and writers made major break throughs in exploring the medium, it gives me a great thrill.

Nice one, jimmm. I wish I had your ability to express some of these points.
I sometimes wonder if some N.American comics fans do lack a bit of perspective.  In the U.K. we were used to our weekly anthology titles plus lots of comics which were made to look like American ones, even though, in many, there was no American involvement at all.  But here we were also exposed to N.American comics through them brought in as ballast on ships, or you could find them if you were near an American base and later when distribution to newsagents started.  So, many older fans here have seen a wider range of drawing styles, storytelling styles, formats etc.
My problem with clear thinking on this is that I tend to pursue the unusual, obscure, different and I occasionally forget that other comics fans have comfort zones and wont be interested in the stuff I track down.  But I'd hate to be in a position of relying only on modern American comics for my entertainment but, then again, if you don't have that exposure to, or interest in exploring other material, who am I to object.  Fortunately CB+ does a good job in spreading the word, educating perhaps?, and exposing fans to material which they might never discover otherwise.

A bit of a rarity this, a Lesley Shane newspaper strip by Oliver Passingham.  I've been a fan of Ms.(or Miss, given the era) Shane for ages but I know the stories from the digest Detective Picture Library, so this is a pleasure.  Steve mentions that he has tracked down another story which will appear on Bear Alley soonish but the quality of the originals seems to need some work to get them even to this standard.  Hope you all enjoy it.

First, to the folk who downloaded Zorro #58, there was a duplicated page 16, so I have deleted it and uploaded a corrected version.  This comic was a British title but, I think, was a reprint of a French comic.  No info. in the British guide. 
For comparison and, hopefully, enjoyment, an Italian version of Zorro.

The French lady who is our French teacher, is also starting to learn Spanish.  It's odd to hear her halting efforts when her English is SO good. Mind you, I've been learning French for a while and I often come to a  stuttering halt as my lack of vocabulary shows its ugly face.:-[ 
I think I'm right in saying that the Spanish (i.e. from Spain) comics we have are only a small part of what was published up to about mid '60's.  The search goes on.

And, after fighting with the scanner and a tatty old comic, (there should be another grade for comics alongside G; VG; P; FN etc.   FTB - falling to bits) I've managed to get a coherent copy of an old French title up on site.  This dates from 1945 and I had always thought that during and just after WW2, comics like this were only published in the south of the country, Nice for example - the part not under direct Nazi rule. Don't know how I came to that conclusion but if anyone can shed any light on this, I'm sure we would all like to have it.

I had to have a really big dig for more Spanish material as many of the Mediafire links had disappeared.  But it was worth it as I found a small treasure trove of umpteen issues of El Espiritu de la Selva, a masked hero in The Phantom tradition with a history going back centuries.  First 15 issues now available and a pile more to come.  Also, I'm working on a run of El Poder Invisible (The Invisible Power), featuring an invisible criminal, reminiscent of one of those movie serials.
And also now available, a compilation of a couple of issues of a Spanish MMM, Galator.  There is another compilation, this time of El Capitan Sol and when I can figure out why it's not loading properly, I'll upload it.
Don't know what happened there but, it's now available.

Yorga was an Italian fumetti character first appearing in 8-13-1949 and ending in 6-11-1950 no douobt reprinted all over the place. But any Yorga is a good Yorga. I have only one Yorga to scan and post and when I do it will go into the Italian Language section.

A new masked mystery man for CB+.  This time a historical series set in Venice in the 16th. century.  It's a bit laborious downloading these comics page by page, (it's just the way the source site is set up) but I think it's worth it and I hope you do also.  You'll find the first 5 issues here:-
http://comicbookplus.com/?cid=2641
Plus the next 5 issues of Yorga.
Excitingly, I think I'm on the trail of an old, obscure, Spanish comic from 1947, featuring yet another historical MMM. El Caballero Fantasma.  Slowly but surely we're getting to some of those old titles I thought were there but couldn't find.

A third issue of Tim Valour - #28.  This issue might be prior to the other 2 issues, note that the other 2 have New Series printed on the covers.  Then there is the format which is an older Australian format, I think. This issue looks normal, like a standard portrait comic, but when opened, it is landscape format.  The staples are at the top of the cover.  Can anyone shed any light on it?
In poor condition, this is as good as I can make it.  It's also the last example in my boxes.  So, unless some of our Antipodean members can conjure up some more, we're stuffed!

Post by: crashryan on March 06, 2014, 05:46:36 AM
I wonder whether #28 may actually the newest book. You have a good point concerning the format. However Dixon's art in #28 seems more mature than that in #14 and #15. The faces, figures, and drapery are more assured. There's also a greater level of detail on the aircraft and the backgrounds. Maybe by issue 28 the publisher figured the "new series" label had run its course and dropped it. I don't know why they'd have decided to change from portrait to landscape format, though.
Title: Re: Paw's profferings
Post by: paw broon on March 06, 2014, 03:34:25 PM
So glad quality prose has a place and is recognized by the cognoscenti!  I continually endeavour to raise the standard of writing and it is heartening to receive such praise. ;D

Tim Valour #28 - Thanks crash. I take the point about the art and have noticed the price increase from 6d to 8d, which adds weight to this being a later comic.  I've had a close look at the originals and the price is printed, not overstamped for the British market.   But it's the format change that concerns me with the landscape format, and especially this odd hybrid one of the staples at the top of a portrait cover, being an older Aus. style.
I hope some others can offer opinions, please.

A new addition to the British comics section with, "The King's Captain".  A 68 page, b&w pocket library featuring D'Artagnan and the Three Musketeers.  The cover was in tatters but I found a replacement.

A new addition to the French section, from 1948, which I bought recently in a second hand bookshop in Palma de Mallorca. The bloke in the shop had no idea where he got it.   In poor condition, with badly trimmed pages on thin paper, it is readable and I hope some of you will enjoy something a bit different

Following comments on our Aus. comic in the reading group,  I made an effort and spent time searching through my boxes.  So, we now have an issue of Sergeant Pat of the Radio Patrol:-

and an issue of another Aus comic, this time an original, Flynn of the FBI, by Arthur Mather, the artist who did the Aus. Captain Atom.:-

Thanks for uploading these books! I may be the only one, but I've always enjoyed the Radio Patrol strip, both for story and art. This example is rather later than I've seen before...the cars are late-40s/early 50s. Radio Patrol was really a child of the 30s and I suspect the novelty of police cars with radios had worn off by the time this story was published.

I scanned Flynn of the FBI but I haven't read it yet. The artist (is that Maher? I can't read the signature clearly) swiped his women from Mel Graff's X-9, though the other characters seem to be his own. Graff's layouts and handling of backgrounds had an influence on Maher as well. Very interesting.

Another example of a striscia.  This one is a slightly more obscure title I think.  The Phantom/Ghost Archer - although when you read it you wont find him firing many arrows or being particularly phantomy/ghosty.

15 issues of Nelson Lee Library and we're moving into the Phantom Protector series.  As usual, some atmospheric covers.  You'll find them in the Nelson Lee section coming up to #500 and above.:-
http://comicbookplus.com/?cid=780
Following right along, 4 issues of The Thriller - #81, 95, 352, 546.  In the pulp section:-
http://comicbookplus.com/?cid=740
Plus, in the story paper section, 3 pre-Sexton Blake issues of Union Jack, a new issue of Modern Boy.

There were some problems with some of the Nelson Lee batch.  Fortunately Mark noticed - is that bloke eagle-eyed or what? - so I've uploaded complete files.  You could do worse than read #498 - 500 as it's the Christmas story - The Ghost of Glenthorne Manor.  Also in the back of some of these issues there is a Nelson Lee detective story co-starring girl detective, Eileen Dare.

An album of football (soccer) cards from Brazil and dated 1947

And from 1954, an issue of Junior, a western comic, also from Brazil.  Half of the first 2 pages of story are missing, torn off.
http://comicbookplus.com/?dlid=51597
Narfstar is right, the lettering on Espiritu de la Selva is really off-putting.  Difficult to read. The comics main claim to fame, for me, being a resemblance to The Phantom - character and legend.  Another similar legend is the one for Phantom Ranger, the Australian hero and I think I've found a couple of the Brazilian reprints online, if I can collate the scans, I'll upload them, just needs some time.

See narf's comment above.  As for me, it has always seemed a bit harder to read - and I've been used to it for a few years now. Feels as if you have to to work hard to figure out some of the text and not only because it's in Spanish.
But I'm glad you find it fine as this is a good comic, especially as it features one of the sub-Phantom characters.

A cigarette card album, circa 1930's, featuring BBC radio personalities incl. Gracie fields, The Hulbert Bros. band leaders etc. This was issued by W.D. & H.O. Wills and the album cost 1d (one penny).
I found this in a local charity shop and it is in pretty bad nick, so if anyone wants to have a go at improving the quality of the scans, please go ahead.

I started Googling from the front of the book to find clues to a publication year, only to discover that in Sir Henry Wood's entry the writer says right out that "this year" is 1934. So I guess this was published in 1934. I found many interesting stories about these fellows. George Allison was the Beeb's leading soccer announcer even while he was boss of Arsenal F.C. Wasn't that considered a conflict of interest back then? Derek McCulloch has been accused of sexually abusing kids during his long run hosting "Children's Hour" while the BBC covered it up. Wikipedia calls Christopher Stone "the first disk jockey in the United Kingdom." I wonder what happened to his collection of 12,000 records, which had surely grown by the time he died in 1965. All very fascinating. Thanks for posting this document.

I stumbled upon  2 new Buffalo Bill issues, 1 with art by Denis McLaughlin, the other by Ron Embleton.  Both published by TV Boardman/Popular around 1949/50.  So, as we already had some Boardman/Popular books and annuals, I've made a new section and gathered them together.  You can find them here:-

There is also a 4 page strip from a mid '50's annual by Ian Kennedy and you can find it here:-

I liked Swift Morgan. Boy the art was way off or way on. Some really great looking panels and people and some pretty poor ones.
Title: Re: Paw's profferings
Post by: crashryan on May 14, 2015, 05:32:22 AM
I agree with Narf on Swift Morgan. It looks like the best panels are when the artist had swipes or photos to work from. Still a commendable job. I'll bet King Zezon has a sore neck from supporting the weight of that horsehead helmet.

I have moved the previously unknown origin Swift Morgan story to the TV Boardman section as I'm now pretty sure it originated in either Boardman's Adventure Annual or New Spaceways Comic Annual.
The Buffalo Bill story that was in The British section is now in TV Boardman as it comes from Buffalo Bill Wild West Annual #3 (1952). Thanks to Bigwords for the info.

A compilation of The Flaming Avenger illustrated text story from Rover, 1933.  Wasn't sure what was the best section to host this.  It's currently in Compilations but if anyone prefers it somewhere else, let me know.
This is a costumed superhero with a touch of Iron Man but decades before.  The story appeared in 2, 3 or 4 page, weekly installments and, unfortunately, one 3 page part is missing, but there is a good chance that the missing issue will be re-upped and I can complete the file.  Shouldn't spoil your enjoyment of a rare character.

This is one of a number of illustrated text stories featuring costumed or masked mystery man in early British storypapers, but it is so difficult to find complete serials.

I've added a Davy Crockett section to L. Miller.  Also corrected the attribution for DC #04 to reflect that the scanner was ernesto_hombre.

An apology. I wrongly attributed art in Daniel Boone #6 to Castells, so I have altered the notes on that comic. If anyone can i/d the artist on #6, that would be good.  Well, better than the art anyway.
The work, however, does seem to have been done for Mick Anglo Studio.

A new section in British Comics. A. Soloway of London published comics from 1940 to 1949? The section only features one of their titles, All Star Comic, and we have to give all credit to "bede" for the scans.  These are rarities and well worth a look as examples of the type of comic available in the U.K. during the war and right after.

Very interesting to see these books. "Argo" looks great, though it's mostly swipes. However I find "The Man from the Past" most appealing despite its clunky artwork.

What size were these comics? They seem to be wider in proportion to their height than other magazines. Were they "mini" books?
Title: Re: Paw's profferings
Post by: paw broon on October 11, 2015, 08:02:22 AM
As far as I can be sure, from my info and the guide, the first vol was 8 page tabloid size.  After that it went to 16 page half tabloid.  The guide suggests there were 27 issues in total.
Once again, I have to say that all the credit for these should go to bede, as all that I did was make up a new section for them and upload them to that.  Perhaps when bede sees I've done that, he might want to change the attribution and might be able to add more info.

First of all I should explain that when I am asked to select a username when joining anything new I tend to make up a new name.  I was hoover on here before I joined Scanarama where I selected Bogof39 and then when I got into the database there I selected bede.  If it is of interest to anybody Hoover is my cat, whose photo is at the left, taken when he was about one year old.

The Soloway titles are from a bound volume I just got and if paw would like to add the other issues I've scanned it will save me the trouble.  I know little about the titles and I'd never heard of them until last month although I was eight when they ceased publication.

Aye, that's about right, isn't it?  I just got a bit excited about all these great, obscure comics.  In my somewhat weak defence, I was searching for info. on Soloway and putting out questions to some other collectors for help with the company, contributors and titles, all at the same time.   :-[
I have gathered up the All Fun #1/1 , but the other 2 Comic Caper issues return a "not found" result and I notice there is no mention of which site they are on.  I'll make a note on the Indexing Website and we'll see what happens.
Amending this to note that the 3 missing Soloway titles are now available here:-

Since you are in the UK, you have much better access to certain British series than I.  I would love to see the Fleetwood line of comic, especially the THRILLER series before they began BATTLER BRITTIAN and the alternating war heroes series.  I'd love those that did adaptations of great books.  I do remember one I read that was titled THE THREE MUSKETEERS but actually adapted THE MAN IN THE IRON MASK.

As I wrote to one of our other members recently, scans of these pocket libraries are like hens teeth.  The books are a nightmare to scan without destroying the originals and the few we have, or that are available, are all from copies that are literally in tatters.  The originals are expensive and not many collectors want to dismantle valuable collectibles for scanning.  As you know, because of the bad staples which always are rusty, putting an issue back together needs new staples and therefore it's not original anymore and the value drops.  However, on ebay uk there are a number of facsimiles for sale at about £7 each and you could take a look at them to find issues you want.  Meantime, it's a case of wait and see what turns up.

Ditto, well said Paw Broon, the Hen's Teeth analogy is apt to many other comics as well.

A real rarity this time.  I was looking through old files and came up with a pile of photocopies from years ago of a great Edgar Wallace newspaper strip adaptation.  I've tried to tidy the pages and bits and pieces up and put them in a readable order.  So, from 1937, here's Terror Keep, featuring the amazing Mr. J. G. Reeder of the Public Prosecutors office bringing the mad John Flack to justice.  Art by Jack Monk, who is a favourite of mine as he drew the Buck Ryan strip.  Hope you enjoy it.

Yes, I saw that cover but it's not a Spaceways Comic cover.  Actually, what I meant was, could anyone get rid of the gap between the top image and the bottom image on my not very good paste-up, or otherwise improve the layout, 'cos I'm not very professional with this stuff :-[
The cover I used listed 2 stories with some extraneous stuff about the 2nd story, which I don't have and can't find, so I chopped it up and used the bits that referred to the Swift Morgan story.  for me, that was pretty good ::)

Heroes 4 Sale (yes, named after the comic shop in the movie True Romance) in Vandalia, OH (near Dayton) is the maist foosty comic shop I've been to, and I love it!  Though there is a shop in Alexandria,VA (that I have not visited) that also sells exotic plants along with back-issue comics, I suspect that one may be even mair foosty than Heroes 4 Sale.

I confess to having to look up 'pongy' & 'foosty' I now plan to use them in casual conversation.

Foosty https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/foosty

Isn't Krac sounding more and more Scottish?  And no bad thing.
A number of Scottish words come from French and Dutch.  French was the official language of the Scottish court before we were sold to England. And there was a lot of trade between Scotland and France and Holland.

Yes they have been but some of the issues used fro the compilation weren't, so I used Friardale.  Actually, you probably noticed that the compilation is missing the first 2 chapters, something I'll rectify shortly.  It was more a test upload for me with this one.   Also, I like the idea of taking complete stories from anthology pubs and letting folk read them without having to wade through a pile of issues at 2 or 3 pages per issue.

A new set of compilations today.  This might not interest many of you, but I've been looking into early Spanish hero/villain pulps recently and have put together covers and interior illos. from a few titles.  (Although I have a feeling that "S" was in an early Spanish comic). 
Interestingly with El Encapuchado, we already have his later incarnation as a comic on site.  The previous version in the pulps featured 2 masked, costumed female characters and I leave you to discover them on your own.
No knowledge of Spanish required for enjoying these files but I hope this might encourage some of our Spanish members to seek out more of these wee gems.

After a lot of chasing around, and thanks to my friend, Glenn Miller, I finally got in touch with Dominic Regan who gave me permission to scan and upload some issues of his mid '80's ' zine, Paper Empire - later Captain Empire.  We now have Paper empire #1 & 3 and Captain Empire #1, which is really the fourth issue of the 'zine but contains only a Captain Empire story and should be read after PE #3.
Well worth checking the notes Dom printed in the 'zine, for an idea of who was about in comic fandom at the time.

Yes, you're right.  I' m a bit careless about the classification.  We didn't have Dime novels here, because we didn't have dimes.  There were tons of these "Dime" novels in the UK and throughout Europe and El Corsario X is only one.  This site has more examples of Spanish chapbooks/dreadfuls or whatever you want to call them:-
https://eldesvandelabuelito.wordpress.com/
Here, publisher like Newnes and others published lots of titles.  Robin Hood, Dick Turpin, Claude Duval, numerous detectives. And France was awash with them. They always have seemed to me like pulp writing, so I tend to use the term, usually with a country in front of it. ;D

Additions to the Spanish historical hero, El Hombre de la Estrella.  Great costume. We now have issues 1 - 11 having today added # 5 - ll.  Scanned by CelsoRabat and sourced from those nice people at Aquellos Inolvidables Tebeos.  This series comprises 26 issues and dates from around 1946. With any luck the rest will turn up. Fingers crossed.

A bit of a rarity this time with Super Thriller Comics # 21.  Although I've previously added other issues of the title to the site, and been a fan of Ace Hart since I was a wee boy, I've never laid eyes on this issue.  You can find it here:-

A new section today in the French section, this is for 3 issues of Aventures de Pecos Bill, early to mid '50's,   I've had to attribute these to "unknown" as I lost my notes of where these and other scans came from, and I've been holding off posting them thinking I might turn up the notes. So, apologies all round and if anyone can tell me whose scans these are, I'll change the attribution :-

You're a lifesaver Starman.  Thanks, and I hope all our members and readers will visit your excellent site 8)
I have to add that I was reading your site's entry on Cobra and hervhe has posted an explanation of the history of the title that explains the connections very well.  I knew that Cobra and Naja were based on Sadik but thanks to hervhe I now have the Italian and French publishing history.  Also some info on more recent appearances which I knew nothing about.
If anyone fancies a look at this fascinating series - only a tiny part of French and Italian comics - use this link:-

El Corsario Azul looks pretty good... was that originally a Spanish language newspaper strip?
Title: Re: Paw's profferings
Post by: paw broon on July 15, 2017, 03:03:17 PM
Hi Dl, no, it was originally a 12 issue comic by Ediciones Cliper in 1949. But to an extent, you're right because there were subsequently additional stories in El Coyote - (50's) and these were full page b&w strips which could easily have been mistaken for a newspaper strip. These are the pages collected in this compilation.
There's info (in Spanish) here:-

Thanks to the power of work hoover has put into this we now have access to compilations of s.f. stories from the British story papers.  These range from the early '30's till, in our case, the late '50's.
All good wholesome fun.  Pulp style stories but very British, in publications which are sometimes described as peculiarly English.  Which is odd given that many of these stories appeared in a Scottish company's comics.
You will find four of them here, and I'm sure you will enjoy them:-

For ages I've been trying to find scans of the classic British newspaper strip, Buck Ryan, which appeared first in 1937 with story by Don Freeman and art by one of my favourites, Jack Monk.  EAGZA have produced 2 vols in Spanish.  I have one of them, the second.  Again grateful thanks to http://misinolvidablestebeos.blogspot.co.uk
So, if the only way we can read some of these great strips is this way, that'll have to do.
Hope you enjoy the stories:-

Post by: Kracalactaka on September 24, 2017, 05:35:15 PM
I'll take a look, probably improperly formatted, there have been a lot of those lately. Usually the prob is that instead of all being jpg one or more files is png or something and that mucks up the works. The fix is usually to DL the file and unzip it then do a bulk edit on all the files that re-formats them all to jpg.

I just Downloaded and noticed right off the top a non-uniform file naming schema, that can cause problems too.

no two cbz readers seem to prioritize file names the same way. Thus a book that looks ok on your tablet, may be out of order on CB+ or in Cdisplay.

Broon,

going forward, you should open these books up and do some exploratory surgery, making sure all the file extensions end with .jpg

also make sure they are all named the same way  ie scan-001, scan-002, etc

Realising we had a small pile of individual issues in the compilation of Hardi les Gars, Mark suggested we extract them and host them individually.  As usual, he's on the ball while I couldn't see beyond the compilation. All done, so help yourselves.  Just a note that there are 2 pages of the text story missing from #6.
These comics date from Nov. 1945 - June 1946 and they're bursting with adventure and fast moving stories.

Great to see these in their own section. Lots of good stuff in Hardi les Gars, notably translations of the Virus stories, "Mage of the Black Forest" and "The V Pole." This is the series in which Italian artist Walter Molino was Francofied into "V. Molineaux."

Holy macaroni crash, you really are a fount of all comics knowledge!  I didn't know that about Molino and assumed he was French. Yes some really tasty stuff in HLG.  All thanks to Starman and his site for providing CB+ with some excellent, and important, old French comics.
Today I've uploaded an illustration of Freelance done for me by a customer of aka all those years ago, John Culbard.  There's a Phantom illo. in one of my files - somewhere.  John was, and probably still is, an all-round good guy.
Found 2 other illos and have added them to the file plus John's note of just who the heroes on the 3rd page are, but I'm sure you lot will spot them right off.

Today, the first Buck Ryan newspaper strip story from 1937, with early Jack Monk art.  Action all the way.
http://comicbookplus.com/?dlid=69834
I should add that this is a product of it's time and some of the language would be offensive today, as would the violence against women.
The early Monk art is more basic and cruder and would improve considerably over time.
