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.

THIRD VERSION OF SOARUS MAGNIFICUS REX BY KEN REID



Here’s the third version of the crazy bird by Ken Reid which he drew in hope to attract the attention of MAD USA when he sought new work in 1969. I am not sure as to the order of precedence in which the three versions were produced but I find this one to be the best. I showed the other two in my previous posts.

  1. Mad's loss - they really were mad to pass up on having Ken's art appear in their mag. That's a superb piece of work.
