    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

    Lol maybe because i'm sad me old mate Rab, though still got a lot of my annuals, from my youth, and added to that from EBay. But comics and other stuff, music included, films and tv series were way better back then. Sooner they invent the time machine the better, then I'll make a mint on EBay and retire, or my kids will spend it first.
