While doing spot of self-Googling (hey, c'mon, we've all done it ...) I found this on eBay: the first issue of DoodleBug comic from the summer of 1987.
It sold for £8, OK it's not quite in the Action Comics #1 league, but hey, it was only 25p at the time! What really tickled me about this though, was the following ...
Noted illustrator? Ha, that's going on my business cards!
Also of interest is the fact that the comic was kept in "temperature-controlled storage" for five years before it came out (!) And I'm heartened to find that one rusty staple is the only imperfection, I'd have thought some of the jokes fall into that category.
