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.

POWER PACK OF KEN REID reviewed in Australian magazine!

The image above shows the cover of the recent issue of INKSPOT magazine published by the Australian Cartoonists’ Association. It has a review of the POWER PACK OF KEN REID (see below, click to enlarge), written by Nat Karmichael who is Deputy President of the Association and Editor of INKSPOT. Nat was also an early supporter of my crowdfunding campaign last summer, so thank you, Nat!

If any of my readers in Australia or New Zealand are considering buying copies of the books but are put-off by high postage cost, I thought I might let you know I will be visiting the two countries in March, and I could take a couple of sets with me to post from there. I travel light but I won’t be able to bring a lot of copies over, so do not delay to contact me as this is a first come first served offer :)
