  1. Would it be possible to publish a UK version of a periodical like ‘Comics Review’ consisting of assorted reprints of pages. chapters, stories from old comics and comic strips?. The American version simply reprints chapters and at least one complete long story per issue, sourced from mainly Sunday newspaper comic section strips featuring characters like Tarzan, Flash Gordon, Dick Tracy and many others largely unknown in the UK..Although there’s no tradition of big Sunday comic sections in the UK, there is an equivalent source of serialised strips in now-defunct standalone weekly comics like Eagle and Girl as well as Rover, Tiger, Lion, Bunty, Judy, Mandy etc
    Crowdfunding anyone?

    1. It’s a great idea – some publishers are more receptive to reprints than others, as I’m sure they are in the US, too. There are a lot of newspaper strips besides the heavy hitters like Garth and Modesty Blaise that deserve an airing, as well as strips from the weekly comics. “Spaceship Away” is the closest the UK has come to this kind of title, mixing reprint with New Dan Dare tales.
