Comic Clippings - 29 January

A nice write-up of people's memories of comics, including Look and Learn, can be found in Charlotte Percival's 'Beano There, Done That' in the York Press (27 January).

Talking of The Beano, I didn't have a chance to mention the sales figures of the Beano Annual last week. The book sold 5,217 copies w/e 13 Jan (#36); unfortunately, the Sunday Times online bestsellers listing has been the same two weeks running. A rough (but hopefully educated) guess puts total sales of this year's annual at around 210,000 copies and still selling.
  • The Eagle Awards are now open for voting: you can post your nominations online via the website. Nominations close on 28 February.
  • Alex Fitch conducts regular radio interviews with comic creators for Resonance FM which he then makes available via his I'm Ready for My Podcast blog. The latest two podcasts are part 2 of 'Paul Gravett's Guide to Comics' (18 January) and the first part of 'The Magic of Alan Moore' (25 January).
