    Anyone out there looking for the Doctor Who Classic Comics magazines?

    I was looking for them a year and a half ago, and believe I found all the ones I was looking for. I'd have too check to confirm. I left my flash drive with my checklist in the MacBook Pro at home.

    edit: I've got then all with a dup of #6

    I've had them in the past, and like a lot of my Batman and Detective comics, I don't actually know where they are now. I suspect they're in the loft of a house I lived in a few years ago.

    Just bought a bundle of DW Marvels from Ebay for £1.00. Pretty good fun......

    While listening to th BIg Finish audios, I always wondered about that story with Frobisher. Glancing at those Classic Comics, now I know where he was introduced.

    He was introduced in the comic strip in Doctor Who Magazine as a Sixth Doctor companion.

    . . . in issue #88. It was also the first appearance of the Sixth Doctor. He would continue on, somewhat intermittently, until issue #133, after which the Seventh Doctor's adventures gradually left the DWM continuity in preference for the Virgin New Adventures continuity. Luckily he returned in 1994's Age of Chaos.

    Chaos still holds four notable distinctions. First, it was (and still is) the only true graphic novel (that is, long form, single-story narrative) ever written in the Doctor Who universe. Second, it was the first story ever compiled under the Marvel UK (later, Panini) license done in full color. Third, it was the first major explanation of what had happened to Peri following "Trial of a Timelord". And fourth, it's the only Doctor Who comic work written by an actor who played the Doctor. And, at least according to the forward, Colin Baker specifically requested to use Frobisher from creators Parkhouse and Ridgway.

    Frobisher is thus quite an important comic companion. He had an extremely lengthy, if somewhat irregular, run—second only to Izzy's time with the Eighth Doctor. He was taken to heart by the actor who played "his" first Doctor. And he's the only comics-only companion to serve two different Doctors under the Marvel license, a feat that would be absolutely unique were it not for TV Comic's John and Gillian. (Though, as we learned from the Eighth Doctor's adventures, all those TV Comic stories were a dream, anyway.)

    If one were interested in acquiring the comics, what might one need to be willing to pay? (she asked, bracing herself...)

    For Doctor Who Classic Comics? Or the Frobisher material?

    I have about the first 40 issues of the UK Doctor Who Weekly (which I believe eventually transformed into Doctor Who Monthly). Is the comic you are talking about?

    Abslom Daak, Dalek Killer was my favorite story, if memory serves me well.

    Well, see, I think the thread took a turn. It originally started talking about Doctor Who Classic Comics, a title which reprinted mostly material from the pre-Marvel era, but also included some work from Doctor Who (Weekly/Monthly) Magazine. However, at one point in the thread the thread seemed to confuse this specific title with a general notion of early DWM work, and Frobisher's introduction in particular was described as taking place in "these Classic Comics". While I wouldn't disagree with the notion that some DWM stuff is "classic comics", it's not Classic Comics. No one was introduced in the pages of DWCC as it was 100% reprinted material.

    Thus, when constantirritant asked about the price of "the comics", the question for me was whether she was talking about Frobisher material or back issues of Doctor Who Classic Comics. The back issues of DWCC are fairly available, sometimes, as Satai Styx has pointed out, at US cover price. Most American comics collectors don't see a whole lot of value in DWCC. However, DWCC fetches a higher markup on the secondary British market. As for getting one's hands on the classic Frobisher stuff from DWM, you'd spend an arm and a leg trying to collect it by buying individual back issues of DWM. Luckily, Panini's Doctor Who Graphic Novel series is making it much more affordable. The Sixth Doctor's era is due to begin reprinting at the end of this year, with a book entitled Voyager. First up, though, is the Eighth Doctor's final volume, The Flood, sometime this summer.
