                If ye ever find Encyclopedia of Comic Characters by the late Denis Gifford, buy it ! Published 1987 so what was missed subsequently wouldn't have been in our time anyway.

                        Great memories mate..you are right, comics just arent the same..

                        Ive just remembered the short lived 'Scream' comic about 1982..that was great and well scary...

                        And 'Action' Comic with Hookjaw? lol lol.. loved that...remember secret agent Fireball? and his survial manual and pendant...hee hee..and also when you got the wee medals and snap together planes with victor and Warlord? had almost forgotten them!!!

                        Rogue Trooper and Strontium Dog were my fav stories from 2000ad alongside Dredd

                        And was it 'Battle' comic that had 'johnny Red' flying his Hurricane for the Russians and 'Tommy Atkins War'? lol.. not very pc but I remember a form of Commando book called 'all War monthly'...lol (mustve been nothing but War, no football, no alf tupper, just War!!!)..

                        finally..in the commando books the Germans always said 'For you the War is over..Englander' ..now, does that mean for us Scots the War is NEVER over then and is infact still going on over 60 years later? scary though!!!

                        all the best...

                            Billy the cat? He was the kid in the black suit with what looked like a motor bike helmet on, and his sister (?) Katie, in the Dandy I think and reprinted later in Buddy. Jumbo was either Dandy or Beano again
