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.

Dogsbodies Academy was a very short series and the only one in COR!! illustrated by Angel Nadal. The feature was about a school for dogs where Mr. Bull-Dog the teacher suffered all kinds of disasters as he tried to give young puppies some useful lessons. Some of the suffering came at the hands of the naughty pupils. A traditional classroom humor strip, except that here it was animals rather than school kids. The series lasted until 14th October, 1970 (issue No. 21) and missed a few weeks towards the end of its modest run – it did not appear on 5th September 1970, 3rd and 10th October 1970 (issue Nos. 14, 18 and 19).

From COR!! dated 15th August, 1970 (No. 11)
