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.

In Eagle Eye Junior Spy Grimly Feendish was an ambitious criminal mastermind whose aim was to conquer the World. The infamous arch-villain fought a relentless war with the young MI 5 ½ agent Eagle Eye who was forever foiling his evil plots. Eagle Eye Junior Spy’s Grimly Feendish first appeared in the first issue of WHAM! and was last seen in the penultimate edition of the paper (No. 186 dated 13th Jan., 1968).
