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.

KEN REID's SOARUS MAGNIFICUS - SECOND VERSION

Here's the second version of  Soarus Magnificus, the crazy birdie drawn by Ken Reid when he hoped to attract the interest of Mad USA in 1969. 

I've saved the third and the best version for later :)

  1. He was certainly firing on all cylinders when he drew this, Irmy. Such a magnificently detailed piece of work, one wonders how he could better it. I'm therefore looking forward to your next post with great anticipation.
