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.

Phil Millar did one more strip in COR!! publications and the title was Percy Grower and his Fantastic Fertiliser. It appeared in the 1982 COR!! Holiday Special and COR!! Annuals 1983 and 1984, one episode in each. 

Percy was one of those kids with gimmicks, his was a spray container of super fertiliser that made plants grow to enormous size. Percy put the fertiliser to good use helping folks and punishing Christmas-tree pinching bullies: as many as two episodes involved tricks with Christmas trees.

Here is the first episode from the 1982 COR!! Holiday Special. Percy doesn’t have a spray container yet and keeps his fertiliser in a simple bottle:
