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The Dandy, The Beano, and Comic Cuts, are all British, although in modern times British comics have been largely superseded by American comic books and Japanese manga.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

      Thanks for another amazing collection of comics and thanks to all of the scanners – over 600 issues of Look and Learn! I didn’t read it when I was a kid, it was a bit too ‘serious’ for me, but I can appreciate it now I’m older and I love The Trigan Empire.

    World of Wonder was a British educational magazine for children published by IPC’s Fleetway Publications (formerly Amalgamated Press) from 1970 to 1975. It was launched under the editorship of Robert Bartholomew with a cover price of 1/6 on 28 March 1970, and it replaced the earlier title, Tell Me Why. It was printed and published in the Netherlands.[1]

    The magazine was similar in content to Look and Learn, which the company had been publishing for eight years, and shared many of its best artists, including Angus McBride, C. L. Doughty, Dan Escott, Richard Hook, Roger Payne, Severino Baraldi and Wilf Hardy. Like its sister publications, World of Wonder was aimed at both boys and girls. It included history, science, geography and literature, serialised stories, as well as names and addresses of children wanting pen pals. The magazine sold all over the English-speaking world (other than the US), with readers in Australia, Ireland, Malaysia, South Africa, and New Zealand.

    The masthead of the magazine proclaimed “Every Monday,” but the cover date of the first issue of the magazine was 28 March 1970 (a Saturday, in fact), and actually appeared on sale in shops on Monday, 23 March 1970. Issue number 2 came out on the following Good Friday, 27 March 1970. In January 1971, World of Wonder incorporated the older children’s magazine, Treasure (from issue 44),[1] and the title ran until 1 March 1975, when it was itself swallowed by the longer running and more successful Look and Learn. World of Wonder ran for a total of 258 issues, joining Look and Learn on its issue 686, when a number of its more popular features continued in the new combined 40-pager.

    Call me crazy, but i am going to re reorganize some titles like Beano, Dandy, Buster. I found it that it’s way more easy to fill in gaps with updates when i have them organized in months per year also. And it’s even more organized when they are split into months.
    Who cares that some packs will have just 1 and others 5, you can see also which issues are missing better also, at least i am.

    And it will use no extra space because when i am done i can delete the old packs.

    Now it takes me hours to fill in gaps because i have to fill in gaps in different months and packs and with my numbering system it’s awkard to get everything in the right packs, let alone the covers at the right places, with re reorganizing i know with 1 blink of my eye, or 2, which packs i have to change because of the organized months and know what covers to use. Believe me it will take some extra effort now to re reorganize but it will be so much easier in the future to fill in the updates and it’s not something that must be done in 1 week or so, i want to go on with my other projects also, but i will start reorganizing right away and see when everything is like i want it to be.

  38. Writing from my wife’s WordPress account. Thank you — this is a great site! Love what you’ve done here. I’m American but my mother is Scottish, and I grew up spending all my summers as a kid in Scotland, and was thrilled to find Daleks, Thunderbirds and TV Century 21 in the summer of 1966, and started collecting then. My grandmother would send my weekly issue, along with Womans Own for my mother, to our house in upstate New York — all the way through to 1975 when it had become Valiant and TV21 and then just Valiant. I still have the entire run of these comics 50 years later — and just pulled them out of years of storage to evaluate and read again. My next step is to try to figure out what they’re worth, as none of the Amerian shops seem to know — and then what best to do with them besides have in boxes in storage. Thanks again — Kevin O’Malley in San Francisco.

      You are welcome, i know the feeling. I still have comics from the late 50’s and they are worth something i know for sure, but i can’t let go of them, for me they are still priceless and someone have to come with a really good “i don’t want to sell them” offer for me to let them go. (Yes i watch American Pickers).

    I never thought I would see the Teddy Bear comics again. I loved them when I was young, and now I’ve found them I can read them at bedtime to my own little boy. It’s great to see the images of an England that is fading into memory.

    I really appreciate all your hard work putting all these old comics together. Thank you so much.

    I’m hoping one day to find a collection of Richmal Crompton’s William books with the original Thomas Henry illustrations.
