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.

Little Geyser was a story about a kid-geyser and his quest for home. The lovable Little Geyser jumped out of hot springs in New Zealand and landed in the radiator of a tourist car. Separated from his home and Pa Geyser, he set to travel the World. He spent a few episodes on a luxury liner hoping it will take him home to New Zealand but ended up in England instead. There the poor Little Geyser spent some time with a dim English family who thought he was a fountain. Feeling sad and lonely, he tried to find another geyser that he could talk to. Later in the run he forgot all about New Zealand and concentrated on a search for a body of water to call home or simply chill – a pond, a canal, a stream, a sink full of water, a bucket, a soda pop dispenser, a washing machine, anything went. Needless to say his weekly experiments put him in all kinds of humorous situations.

From COR!! issue dated 26th December, 1970 (No. 30)

The feature ran from the first issue until 21st August, 1971 (issue 64) and missed a few weeks towards the end of its run (it did not appear on 19th September 1970, 15th May 1971, 29th May 1971, 19th June – 3rd July 1971, 17th July 1971, 31st July 1971 and 14th August 1971 (issue Nos. 16, 50, 52, 55-57, 59, 61 and 63)). Does anyone recognize the artist?
