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.

Browsing eBay, I came across those two nice pieces of original artwork by one of my favourite British comics artists Philip Mendoza. I believe the drawings appeared in Once Upon a Time children’s magazine. I don’t plan to buy them but they are really beautiful so I though I might show the images here for my readers to enjoy.


  1. Really nice, Irmy, thanks for showing them. Makes me think of my childhood in the '60s.

  2. Always nice seeing the originals..
