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.

Jelly Baby was about a naughty baby girl who could stretch her limbs and other body parts like jelly. The feature began in COR!! issue dated 27th May, 1972 (No. 104) and lasted until the last issue of the paper. Jelly Baby made four front cover appearances in issues dated 26th May 1973, 28th July 1973, 3rd November 1973 and 25th May 1974 (Nos. 156, 165, 179 and 208). The majority of episodes were in black and white, with the odd one in full colour. Illustrated by Mike Lacey.
