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 POWER PACK OF KEN REID CAMPAIGN ENDS SOON




The Ken Reid reprints campaign ends tomorrow. It is nearly 130 per cent backed as of now, and I am still hoping for more :) 

I am grateful to all fellow Ken Reid fans and bloggers who have helped me spread the word – the campaign would have hardly reached its goal without the support.  

In an unlikely event if you’ve missed them, here are links to the recent posts by Lew Stringer on his Blimey! blog, and John Freeman on DownTheTubes.

Just to remind you - the limited slipcase editions with free artwork prints, and the individual books with free artwork prints will only be available to supporters of my IndieGoGo campaign!
