My Long lost issue


Hi Guys, I am very new to the site but have read it with great interest. Many years ago I had a picture of me with Norman Whiteside published on the letters page.

I have long lost the issue but thought that there were many others who would be in the same position as myself.

To be proactive I decided to buy a random copy of ebay and see if I could find the kid who had a picture published.

Wouldnt it be great to reunite this guy who is in his mid 30s at least with a great memory of his childhood?

Any advice or help would be much appreciated.

My attempt at a blog is

Re: My Long lost issue


The issue was 26 November 1988. I uploaded a copy of the front and letters pages on the blog I have started.

Its a bit of fun and there has been a good amount of people look in on the site. Feel free to add it or upload a pic as the more people who wish to be involved the better.

It would be my intention to try with another edition soon as it is possible that the person identified may not wish to be contacted. I do hope not though.

Well, we have had our first success. I received a message from the kid in the picture this evening. Hopefully it will not be too long before he is reunited with his issue. With a bit of persuasion, perhaps there will be photographic proof in due course.

Thanks to everybody who has taken the time to read what I have been trying to do. If people are interested I am sure there will be more comics out there to return to people with fond memories of particular issues.
