I had the very first issue of Bunty. I wish I'd had the sense to keep it!!

There used to be a story called the Four Marys in one of her comics (don't know which one) and a story about a whole school being covered by a huge Martian dome with two Martian protagonists, Phobos and Deimos, preventing their escape. I never found out the reason for the dome, so if anyone can enlighten me?

Then, of course, I began my long-term love affair with Superhero comics, which I've still got a collection of. May have to find out if they're worth anything before I snuff it - some of them are in excess of fifty-years old.

The Beano...I was a member of the Beano club and had the badges which I kept for years! Then it was Jackie for a while. I came across some old Victor comics in a second hand bookshop recently....I didn't buy them.
