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.

Ghouldilocks was one of the four ‘Super fun features’ to join SHIVER AND SHAKE lineup from the issue dated August 4th, 1973 (alongside Charlie Williams, Wizards Anonymous and Grimly Feendish). In the advertisement a week before her premiere in SHIVER AND SHAKE she was introduced as Shiver’s own little ‘ghoul’:
Ghouldilocks originally appeared in the late sixties in JAG comic where it enjoyed a short run of only 18 weeks from October 19th, 1968 until the last tabloid-sized JAG dated Feb. 15th, 1969 and was also illustrated by Stan McMurtry. The second series in SHIVER AND SHAKE used the original masthead and reprinted 5 episodes of the JAG run (the reprints were in Shiver and Shake issues 22, 23, 24, 25 and 46).
