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.

Scream Inn ended in WHOOPEE! issue cover-dated 1st October 1977 when the Innkeeper won the million. A week later he decided to use the prize money to set up Spooktacular 7, inspired by The Magnificent Seven film. The feature continued until 22nd July, 1978, and here is the only X-mas episode of Spooktacular 7 that also turned out to be the last one for Innkeeper & Co.
