Welcome on this blog full of information about British comics and offcourse the comics.

A British comic is a periodical published in the United Kingdom that contains comic strips. It is generally referred to as a comic or a comic magazine, and historically as a comic paper.

British comics are usually comics anthologies which are typically aimed at children, and are published weekly, although some are also published on a fortnightly or monthly schedule. The top three longest-running comics in the world, The Dandy, The Beano, and Comic Cuts, are all British, although in modern times British comics have been largely superseded by American comic books and Japanese manga.

You can access the information and comics through the sidebar.
The comics are mostly in packages from around 100mb, inside these rar-packages you will find the comics in cbr format.dandare

There are no DC Thomson related comics on the site, because i had to remove these.

You can view the comics with any cbr-reader like CDisplay or ComicRack.

Most comics are from the 50’s-80’s with some 90’s.

I only place issues from last century,
so no issues newer than the year 1999.

I did not scan the comics myself only collect them from various sites on the internet, internet archive, Usenet Newsgroups and torrents.
So thanks to all the scanners and uploaders.

This blog is purely ment to preserve the comics and to enjoy them, no financial meanings are involved, if you like the comics buy them as long as they are availabe, because nothing can beat the feeling of reading a real comic.

If you find something wrong (downloads, numbering, information) please let me know so that i can correct the error.

Thanks to the following sites for the information :

UK Comics Wiki

Grand Comics Database

      According to the GCD there were 987 issues. When it started off it was 52 issues per volume so a volume covered parts of two years. At some point, not sure when, they decided to have a volume be one year, so there is a volume in the early part of the title that is less than 52 issues.

    I found this information about 1st series of Eagle as follows:

    This is broken down as follows:
    volume issues notes
    1 52
    2 52
    3 52
    4 38 short year as the end of the volume moved from the anniversary of the launch of Eagle to the end of the calendar year
    5 53
    6 52
    7 52
    8 52
    9 52
    10 45 printers striker so fewer issues

    17 53
    18 52
    19 52
    20 17 Eagle merged with Lion
    987

    Note that for volumes 1-3 the start/end date of the volume were in April (to co-incide with the April launch date of Eagle; volume 4 was shortened to get to the end of the calendar year; volume 5 (and all subsequent volumes) ran from the start of January

    To save you a job, I put the pages inside the comic for you ready,

    also scaned som cleaner pages of the 21 more pages if black and white, left the colour ones as they were previous.

    It has exactly 32 pages, however the Chalky pages 20 & 21 are connected together, because the artist makes it rain on both pages and it is better joined together for the full effect.

    Hi Boutje.
    I would like to thank all Uploaders of series One Eagle, especially volume 7, as these are Mint copies.
    Could I ask this uploader does he have better copies of Volumes 4 & 5 as most of these unfortunately to my old eyes are Out of Shape and Out of Focus. Similar also copies in Volume 6, numbered 7, 9, 10 & 11.
    If these could be Upgraded Please.
    It will make this Septenarian very Happy.
    Good child hood memories.
    Thank You All.

      Hi
      I seem to be having a problem downloading from the MEGA.NZ links.
      I have just tried to download this issue of Buster. However, all I get is a page telling me that my browser seems a little outdated and advising me to update to the latest version or switch to a recommended browser. It then provides a list of recommended browsers that fully support MEGA’s advanced HTML5 functionality (what!!!). I still use Windows Vista (yes, I did say Vista) and have always used Firefox and Chrome. However, I can no longer get the latest version of these browsers as Vista is no longer supported. As a last resort I tried the Opera browser but ran into the same problem. I am wondering if having Windows Vista means that I can no longer download from MEGA.NZ links. Can anyone offer any advice on this problem. Please note that I am not having any problems with Mediafire or Stack.
