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world, The Dandy, The Beano, and Comic Cuts, are all British, although in modern times British comics have been largely superseded by American comic books and Japanese manga.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

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 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 :

          If it is the same problem as with Mr. Tweedy.
          Just extract the cbr/cbz files and delete the files that were just a few bites and are invisble to watch, they start with ._ and delete the map with the name macosx, make a new archive and the problem is gone.

    Many, Many thanks for such a brilliant site, and for all the Lion comics within.
    May I make an observation, I believe and have noticed your numbering of (un-numbered) ‘Lion’ comics maybe wrong. out by 7 (seven) on most number from434 onwards, for example:
    Your No, 303 maybe 308 (5 difference)
    Your No. 434 maybe 441 (7 difference)
    Your No. 404 maybe 411 ( 7 difference)
    and so on up to end, giving a difference of 7 (seven) as far as I can see.
    I have been confused when looking for any copies Numbers to Dates that I may have missed.
    This is such a Brilliant site, long may you continue.
    Will you be updating any additional copies please? I do not seem to be able to access filefactory & zippyshare. Has anyone got issue 2 (two) please?
    Kind Regards……

    There were a number of printing strikes (some lasted weeks) that prevented the publishing of Lion on a weekly basis.

    These should be the correct publishing dates of the issues you mention:

    303 7.12.1957
    404 4.01.1960
    434 30.07.1960

    To the best of my knowledge Issue 2 has not been scanned.

    Hope that helps.

    Than you ’boutje777′ and ‘leegs’ for your help and information on the ‘Lion’ comics, yes there were a number of non print Lions and probably your later numbering correct, On enlarging #303 I still think this to be #308. Many thanks leegs for Lions Batch 10 to 14,
    I can download Mediafire ok.
    Kind Regards to Lion comic fans…..
    ps I read original Lions comics in late 50’s and 60’s as a paperboy delivering Newspapers & Comics. Favourites are Eagle, Lion, Tiger, Comet, Buster, Valiant and Knockout.

    Just an update on issue 303 of Lion.

    I believe the issue has been miss-numbered (by the publishers) as 303 instead as 308.

    The scan for issue 307 is dated 4/1/58 and the scan for issue 309 is dated 18/1/58

    So the “real” 303 is missing or not scanned.
