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.

Jeanie and her Genie began in a remote Oriental town where a sweat-shop genie-packer ran out of lamps for packing genies, so he put one in a torch. An English sailor buoght the torch in a souvenir shop and sent it to his niece Jeannie in England as her birthday present. The Genie could be summoned by turning the torch on. He granted Jeanie all sorts of wishes. Being very clumsy, the Genie often found himself in different awkward situations. The short series illustrated by an artist whom I can’t identify lasted from the first issue of COR!! until 31st October, 1970 (issue No. 22).

From COR!! dated 11th July, 1970 (No. 6)
