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 simple strip was about Ronnie Runner and his adventures at Sports School where everything was done sportswise. Students trained for every imaginable sport and sometimes even had combined lessons, such as cycling and nature study, geography and trampoline or a history lesson on the bowling green to learn about Sir Francis Drake who played bowls before sinking the Spanish armada. The comedy of the strip was of the simple variety and so was the artwork.

The one-pager was part of SHAKE section and appeared in SHIVER AND SHAKE issues 51 – 79 (missing issues 71 and 77 in between). I’d appreciate if someone could confirm the artist’s name for me.
