welcome and enjoy!

Hi and welcome to my blog about comics from other people’s childhood! It is dedicated primarily to British humour comics of the 60s and 70s. The reason they are not from my childhood is simply because I didn’t live in the UK back then (nor do I live there now). I knew next to nothing about them until fairly recently but since then I’ve developed a strong liking for the medium and amassed a large collection, including a number of complete or near complete sets. My intention is to use this blog as a channel for sharing my humble knowledge about different titles, favourite characters and creators as I slowly research my collection.

QUICK TIP: this blog is a sequence of posts covering one particular comic at a time. The sequence follows a certain logic, so for maximum results it is recommended that the blog is read from the oldest post up.

Sparky issue No. 16 had football theme on both covers to mark the 1965 FA Cup Final which took place on 1st May 1965 at Wembley and was contested between Liverpool and Leeds United. The back cover of that issue had a nice Moonsters episode by Bill Ritchie with lots of characters and action. But of course no one did those crowded sets better than Leo Baxendale. The Eagle Spy Doomsday School episode with Grimly Feendish is from WHAM! issue No. 37 (27th February, 1965). Isn’t it beautiful?
