    Beccles! Blimey! Suffolk calling. Not too far from where my folks now live. I've been pretty much everywhere in the UK for my job, except the Lake District, the Peaks, the Western Isles, and Western Northern Ireland. Favourite places are York, South Devon, Usk, Southwold, Aberdeen, St Andrews, and the Isle of Wight. I still like Brighton best, mind.

    Yeah My OC character Mindseye is From Leeds city. I spent 3 months there and took photos galore, at the time it wasn't for character research it was just for fun, but I fell in complete love. The Schools, the food, the rail system, the night life etc.
    Wonder if any of the Marvel UK characters are from Leeds. :P

    I was born and bred in Halifax, West Yorkshire, so I was kind of Willow's distant neighbour growing up.

    York is a beautiful city. The wife and I are planning on taking the kids there at some point. I now live and work in Poland, but we visit family regularly.

    I studied at Wolves Uni, lived in Wolverhamption for 5 years or so (Park Village, Bushbury and Compton Road). We used to have lectures on the back of the Molineux Stadium.

    After finishing Uni, I used to commute to work in the centre of Birmingham. Man, that city has changed tons. There used to be a cool shop with frisbees and stuff as you walk down the ramp leaving the train station on your left below. Ultimate Frisbee is one of my favourite sports to play. We used to like visiting Cannock Chase with friends.

    Leeds is kind of next door to Halifax. As teenagers, we would catch the train sometimes on Saturday in order to do some "high street" shopping in Leeds in particular we would try and catch the Next sales. Do they still have those massive queues for them? Also, my Mum would take us to visit her Chinese friends there for some awesome Chinese food.

    Yeah, my wife and I like Brighton. We've got some very good friends there. The missus loves the sea, so at least twice a year we have to be near water. This year when we visit the UK, it may be somewhere North - Whitby, Bridlington, Scarborough...we'll figure something out.

    We love Devon and Cornwall - beautiful place. A few years back the wife and I with friends did a road trip and visited Clovelly, Land's End, Newquay, Paignton, amongst others. Travelled all around Isle of Wight with the family in 1982. I remember it vividly as it was the World Cup at the time. Both the Lake District and Peak District are truly beautiful. I'm one of the British Countryside's biggest fans

    It really is a small world, eh?

    Yes it is. The Compton Park campus is closed now. One if the schools is using the buildings left behind, and sold their building to the Wolves Academy/ Training ground next to it. Ah memories, people going over the road at lunch to watch the team train.

    It's not on the preview pages, but the blurb for Wolverine #6 asks what interest Pete Wisdom and MI 16 have in Madripoor? I assume some or all of the team will be appearing. (Hooray. I love Wisdom.)

    To make it even better it's written by Cornell, who did such a great job with the team in CB and MI 13.

    Sadly not, and I'm often passing through Ipswich by train too, I think the only comic shop I've been to in the whole of East Anglia is Ace Comics in Colchester.

    Sadly its not what is was - but its still worth a look (if only because there isn't much else to do in ipswich).

    Love the guide to deaths head!
