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.

A decade or so ago I was into an American horror-rap band from Detroit Insane Clown Posse (a.k.a. ICP). They have a thing about Halloween and usually arrange special annual events in their home city. I have never been to one, but once upon a time I (accidentally) found myself in their show in Orlando, Florida, and it’s an experience I will hardly ever forget. Picture yourself in a mid-sized venue packed with face-painted fans, with hardcore horror rap lyrics blasting super-loud from a massive set of loudspeakers for two hours plus, with gallons upon gallons of ICP trademark cheap pop sprayed at the audience from special cannons and 2-liters of the same product flying at you from the stage…

Check out a fan-made video of one of their Halloween numbers. Mind, you, it contains  explicit lyrics. Comics-related service will resume soon :)

P.S. - Come to think of it, the post is not entirely unrelated to comics: ICP are marketing geniuses, and in 2000 – 2001 they serialised one of their albums The Pendulum as twelve CD singles, each polybagged with a 32-page comic featuring the band.
