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.

The Adventures of Sonny Storm. In the opening episode Sonny comes across an old cupboard in the attic and finds a photograph and a funny-looking rattle. The man in the photo is his Mom’s great-uncle Ebeneezer who spent many years living with the Sioux Indians in America and he must have brought the rattle back with him. Inscribed on the handle are the words: By Medicine-Man and Sacred Feather, Repeat These Words and Ask for Weather. Sonny soon discovers that the mysterious artifact is a magic weather stick which enables him to create his own private weather. Sonny can now control different atmospheric phenomena and cause them at will; occasionally he gets a chance to use the weather stick to catch some evil-doers and crooks. The two-pager ran for 45 weeks from 25th  September, 1971 (No. 69) and was given a proper ending in the issue dated 22nd July, 1972 (No. 112) in which Sioux Indians came to Sonny’s town as part of a travelling circus and reclaimed the artifact. Sonny gladly returned it to the rightful owners. Artist unknown.

From COR!! issue dated 27th May, 1972  (No. 104)
