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.

Sporting Sue and her Trainer Prue was a strip about an aspiring athlete Sue who was coached by Prue, her unfortunate trainer. The half-pager was a reprint of the Reg Parlett feature from the early years of Buster (1962 – 1963). A total of 14 episodes were reprinted in COR!! from 21st November, 1970 until 8th May, 1971 (issue Nos. 25 – 49).
