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.

Tell-Tale Tess. The sneaky little girl Tess always told on others. Her annoying habit sure didn’t make her the most popular girl in Cortown and she often suffered at the hands of townsfolk whom she told on (or threatened to tell on) for or without a reason. Her main motive was to boss others around but occasionally she got rewarded for her information, for example when it helped catch a crook. The illustrator was Joe McCaffrey. Tell-Tale Tess ran from 7th November, 1970 until 22nd July, 1972 (Nos. 23 – 112) and missed two dates in 1971: 24th April and 22nd May (Nos. 47 and 51).
