    Yes,but only briefly. I found them a little too serious for my tastes, but the War is a serious business I suppose..That has just reminded me!! wow!

                I used to get the odd one when we were off on holiday but war comics really weren't my thing either. I'd always go for one of the oversized Marvel Treasury editions as a special holiday comic treat!

                          Yes, you can.

                          There has been a huge resurgence (in the era of 'retro') in interest recently in these comics. And they have re-released the best strips in several smashing Best of books, HB, softback and paperback. I have bought all the new Best of. My dad still owns quite a few old ones from the 60's.

                            I remember seeing ads for them in The Beano but never remember reading any.

                              I have a couple of the original ones knocking about somewhere, I also have one of the re-released 'Best of' in hard back as well.

                              I'm quite surprised that they have re-released the old ones as they are very stereotypical and i'd have thought the PC brigade would have been up in arms!?
