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.

This little weird character knocked on the door of Scream Inn in Whoopee! & SHIVER AND SHAKE No. 58 (May 3, 1975). Check out the two-pager, followed by the ‘Orrible Hole strip proper from the same issue of the excellent and hilarious WHOOPEE! comic. Aren't they marvelous?!! I really must get round to doing a detailed overview of WHOOPEE! when I have more free time on my hands…

|And if you
thought International Street was the highlight of the 1976 SHIVER AND
SHAKE holiday special, think again because the magazine also included Which
Witch is Which? – a two-pager by no less than Mr. Ken Reid. We’ll
probably never know if this was a test episode for a series that was never
followed up, or perhaps something that Mr. Reid drew for his own enjoyment and
the editor though it was too good not to be printed. Either way, it is an
excellent set showing the master at his very best… |
