    Following on from my other post I was thinking of how I got into comics. I started with the usual Beano Topper Dandy etc before venturing into "older" comics such as the Victor, Hotspur et all.( and ok used to nick my sisters Bunty & Judy) However my greatest influence was my next door neighbour. He was disabled and spent most of his time reading. I used to collect each week a bag of books and comics from his mom( who seemed about 80 to a 10 year old!) As well as the usual pulp cowboy and space books she always had all the lastest DC and Marvel comics of the day, which in the 60's was a rarity. I often wonder how much these comics would fetch now if I had the foresight to keep them and not trade them for other comics and stuff?

          When my parents would go to town they'd bring me the Dandy or Beano. Cousins of ours arrived during the summer, Bank Hols, etc. with a shedload of Whizzer&Chips's Busters etc. Never having been a war fan, I didn't get into the Hotspur, Victor, etc. but loved Roy of the Rovers. Joined Fireball's fan club in Bullet purely for the wallet and pendant that I thought would impress the girls.

            Did it impress the girls then? I used to like the summer specials too.

              There was always glorious sunshine and every beach was a dog-muck-, used-condom-free, lively resort in the summer specials. The reality was a bit different.
              Re your question, Og : course not.

                          I think it used to be called Funny Fortnightly, and was very similar to Whizzer and Chips.

                            Ok, sounds like a compilation to me, best bits of other comics such as Whizzer and Chips, Cor and the like.
