Now that I have some offers to help with the work, I am just waiting on Rob Baker to see whether he is still willing to scan in the pages of strips.

Just sayin...

I dare say you'll be learning to use that online image editing software so that you can help get all the strips online.

I may have said this before

If you did, it was a long time ago.  ;D

I'm astonished all of this wasn't done at the time of creation/publication. What in blue blazes were you thinking of, Roger?  ..0
I was going to draw them all again by hand.

Well, if you have nothing better to do during lock down...

And Mince, that makes a lot of sense.

I may have said this before (if I wasn't so lazy, I'd check but I'm sure Mince will anyway) but I'll say it again...Beau Peep is timeless. The humour in both the writings and the the artwork will be able to be read years from now and still make you cry with laughter.

What brought this on I hear you mumble, feigning interest?

Blackadder and Monty Python, that's what.

I was watching series 2 episode 1 with my daughter Bob, (the episode where she got her nickname funnily enough) and we sat in absolute sides-sore hilarity at a programme 34ish years old. Why? Because the humour is of the utmost quality, that's why. It is every bit as funny and fresh now as it was in 86 when it came out.
We sat a few weeks ago watching Monty Pythons Life of Brian (1979!) and again the humour in it is simply timeless. Bob has been able to recite Monty Python lines from an age that should have got me in trouble with the authorities, and its one of my proudest achievements.
She was born in 97, and should be a child from a different era yet the humour still comes through.Beau Peep is exactly the same.
In my own humble opinion, BP is every bit as equal to such classics as Blackadder and Monty Python. It is timeless humour of the highest caliber and will be for ever and a day. The strip may be published no more, but the legacy that Andrew and Roger have left is a timeless piece of humour that will never lose its greatness.

Just sayin...

I don’t do well under that kind of intense pressure.

Don't be bullied Tarks, there's support sites you can report him to !

As someone once said to me, "I'm sure it'll be quality when it eventually happens"

Not sure it related to a post, but it was the sentiment that counted  (y)

I've re-read all of Spike Milligan's war diaries, intend to start learning guitar again.

How bizarre, Max. I've just started playing again after Brian May introduced me to a new Vox amp (ok, so I saw it on a YouTube thing he did) that gives the most amazing Queen tones. Mega cheap...so I bought one. Currently looking for my old dog eared copy of "Adolf Hitler: My part in his downfall" after talking to a guy at work about it. Classic books !!

Hello Daniel - I too started off with book #3

We haven't had a new member for a long time - I thought Mince had the chased them all away.

He tries hard to !

Welcome Daniel, I was a newbie once. Feels like twice now  :P

                 .Select( x => new strip(x.Image, x.Date, x.Notes)

I just noticed that I left out the closing bracket. How embarrassing! I'm surprised Tarks didn't pounce on that one and laughingly correct me.
