Margaret Fletcher… I had Bunty
Kev Perry… Look in
Peter Brazier… Eagle, TV21, Valiant, Comando, War library, beano, Dandy, what ever I could get with the pocket money I had left after I’d got my Airfix, Frog or Revel model kit lol
Jim Breeds… Dandy, Beano, Tiger at various times, but I regularly had Eagle delivered. Also I was literally just sorting through some old stuff a few minutes ago and came across this. Who remembers TV Tornado? It’s the complete comic from July 1967 that for some reason I still have.

Lyn Humphrey… Ah, comics—now you’re talking my language! Main one was ‘Lion’, with favourite character being ‘Karl the Viking’. Brilliant artwork, that I found out later was by Don Lawrence, a noted artist (and two weeks too late, I discovered he lived 2 miles from my house!). Also had, at various times, the Victor, Eagle, and Beano. They don’t write ’em like that anymore!
Eric Harmer… Penthouse
Barry Newton… I know you Eric, you only bought it for the pictures, lol

John Sperni… 2000AD… Still got prog 1,2,3
Martin Ralph… Lol,me too. Up to 226
Will Cornell… Mad Magazine. Still laugh out loud thinking over their stuff.
Dennis Torrance… My favourite was The victor like the dandy and beano later got the century 21
Josie Lawson… I had Jackie and Judy which my mum got me…and sometimes read my sisters Bunty. I miss the comics. I used to enjoy which bubble of words should be read, working it out. I know I have seen in Waterstones when I could get out and about, books with a different type of comic. There is a name for these books but can’t remember.
Within the last few years, adult colouring books have taken the scene by storm so to speak. Yes, obviously someone came to their scenes and realised the relaxation with them, adults and children need to colour, but maybe someone should now come out with adult comic books similar to our childhood comics. Before seeing this, I have quite often mentioned this to friends. “Wish I could pick up a comic at the paper shop”…
Tony May… My Nan (mum’s side) used to buy us the Dandy and Beano every week when me and my brother were kids. She used to go out to work to be able to buy them for us and to give us pocket money. I SOO wish I had been old enough to have appreciated it then and thanked her but when you are a kid you just take things for granted. I have been extremely lucky in life as far as family and friends is concerned and as I have gotten older (I hope) have got much better at realising that as well…
David Broome… Look In & whichever comic had Billy’s Boots
Chris Meachen… Beano or Dandy, but rarely both…
Terry Hardwick… The Valiant. With Captain Hurricane. And the Hornet with Goal Keeper Bernard Briggs.
Carol Ann Bolton… Bunty.
Kathy Wood… Twinkle then Whizzer & Chips
Geoff Peckham… Victor, with Braddock VC, Tough of the Track, Morgyn the Mighty etc. Loved it.
