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.

Although this blog is supposed to be mostly about British comics, I’ll share something completely different this time. The other day I watched episode 4 of the first season of American TV series Magic City, and it ends with this absolutely brilliant version of Elvis’ “Don’t Be Cruel”. Courtesy of Google, it didn’t take me long to find out that the singer was an American chap Billy Swan who released the cover version in 1975. The preacher’s dance had me laughing out loud, but if you take the trouble to watch the video to the end, you’ll be gobsmacked by the political incorrectness of the final scenes! Comics-related service will (probably) resume soon :)
