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.

The crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to print the official complete collection of Ken Reid’s Odhams work has been well received by fans. It is already more than 75 per cent backed – and there’s still a month to go! 

Thanks to all who contributed so far, and here’s the link for those who would like to join the fun: THE POWER PACK OF KEN REID

To celebrate this achievement, here are some shots of Ken’s original Frankie Stein artwork – the top half of the page, followed by individual panels of the same. I will save the bottom half for later.

The image was kindly supplied by Julius Howe who owns the page and is one of the backers of the campaign, so special thank you to you, Julius!

NB: Please, note that this is not the original artwork that will come with the books!
