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.

Let’s take a quick look at tennis today. As I mentioned it in my previous post, tennis was one of the privileged sports in British comics. Many popular characters tried a hand at the sport once in a while so it probably won’t be the last time that we see it in this series of Olympic posts…

This lively set appeared in 1977 SHIVER AND SHAKE Holiday Special and was a reprint of the Lion Lot from LION by Leo Baxendale
