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.

Spoilsport was about an evil-minded fellow who never played the game. Nobody’s gonna have any fun while he’s around: he derives his pleasure from spoiling things, sports and games for other people but always suffers in the end. It was illustrated by Graham Allen who contributed quite a few strips during COR’s!! 4-year run. Spoilsport continued from the first issue until 22nd July, 1972 (No. 112) with a few gaps towards the end of its run. It missed the following dates: 26th February, 1972 – 25th March, 1972 (Nos. 92 – 95), 8th and 15th April, 1972 (Nos. 97 and 98), 20th and 27th May, 1972 (Nos. 103 and 104) and 8th July, 1972 (No. 110).

From COR!! issue dated 25th July, 1970 (No. 8)

From COR!! issue dated 7th November, 1970 (No. 23)
