Dutch Goldfinger Lobby Card

I recently found this Dutch "Goldfinger" Lobby card on eBay. It almost looks like the German lobby card except the tag line and an embossed stamp on the card. 

So far I have found 4 cards which makes me wonder if there is a full set...

OHMSS Photobusta Set

Until recently I thought that the Italian set of lobby cards / photobustas for "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" contained 6. But then I found the Italian pressbook  which listed 10. the initial 6 are easy to find but the full set is rare.
Big thank you to Steve who filled the gaps!

Operazione Tuono Posters from Italy

10 variations of the Italian locandina poster for "Operazione Tuono" (Thunderball). 

I'm puzzled by the many variations that exist. Some variations are obvious such as the blue title of the changing distributor logos. Other appear to be different print runs which all have variations in terms of positions and the fine print at the bottom.

Comic Artwork by John McLusky

I had the pleasure to visit Graham McLusky, the son of artist John McLusky together with Jason from SpyVibe. Graham told us about his father’s work and it was great fun seeing the original artwork. 

One fact was particularly interesting: John McLusky was a true perfectionist and he improved on his work even after it was published. There are several panels where John replaced the original artwork with new elements as shown here. They are from "Moonraker"



Check out Graham’s website where he sells the original artwork and a limited edition of “the face”.
