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.

Joe Colquhoun (whose Kid Chameleon tale I covered in a series of 4 posts in the COR!! section of this blog) also drew an excellent football comedy strip Football Family Robinson in the short-lived JAG comic from the late 60s. In his interview for the Fantasy Express fanzine Joe Colquhoun said it was one of his favourites that he would have liked to have done more of. The beautifully painted colour sets graced the spacious front and back pages of the tabloid-sized paper. Here are the first three instalments and three more will follow tomorrow.
