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.

Harriet and her Horse. A tale about a little girl Harriet who swopped her scooter for a troublesome horse and named her new friend Hector. The two of them got along very well and had some jolly good time together but COR!! readers apparently didn’t think much of their antics: the story was dropped 22 weeks into the paper’s run - the last episode was in the issue dated 31st October, 1970 (No. 22). Illustrated by Les Barton. 

From COR!! dated 27th June, 1970  (No. 4)

From COR!! dated 12th September, 1970 (No. 15)
