^_^ a classic. Lets hope you are able to get that book done sometime.

Something I would comment on.. Combat Colin seamed very popular in Transformers which is why it ended up full page and all, but it still seamed odd when then Robocop 2 story was printed in the one annual (I would have to check to remember which year) in colour, along side one Marvel UK Transformers story. Any thing special that lead to that or just that they wanted to fill some space?

I think the RoboCol story was in colour originally too. I presume they wanted the annual to reflect the weekly but the budget wasn't high enough to afford a new Combat Colin story.

Marvel also reprinted various Combat Colin strips in their Bumper Comic, alongside Doctor Who and other stuff. I'll have to dig those out one day. Not sure where they are at present. We had a small reprint payment for the Bumper Comic stuff though, which was good.

A great daft fun story...thinking about it Tom Thug had a few longer stories...

I really hope you get that whole page in The Beano every week it is a crime not to...
I love his salute! love little jokes in comic pages..
