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.

Further to my previous blogpost, I am proud and delighted to announce that the crowdfunding campaign to support the complete collection of the works of Ken Reid in WHAM!, SMASH! and POW! comics is now live and open to all!
If you read my previous post, you must have seen the covers, and here are a few spreads showing what’s inside. Please, click to enlarge!
