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world, The Dandy, The Beano, and Comic Cuts, are all British, although in modern times British comics have been largely superseded by American comic books and Japanese manga.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 the corrections. I changed the first page, the date i can’t change that is the system because it was first posted and afterwards updated.
      Otherwise i always have to make new pages for every update.
      I made a remark on the page when it was updated and at the frontpage you can always read when there are updates.

    Boy’s Cinema was a weekly comic published by Amalgamated Press from 1919 to 1940.

    It focused on adaptations of films – Westerns being a favoured genre.

    During the course of its 1063 issues Boy’s Cinema absorbed Boys’ Broadcast, Screen Stories and Modern Boy before perishing in the midst of wartime paper rationing.

    Remember Starlog magazine?

    Its first issue hit stands in August 1976, and it kicked off with a complete guide to the episodes of Star Trek: The Original Series and a behind the scenes look at The Bionic Woman.

    Starlog focused on science fiction and was released on a regular basis until 2009.

    The magazine covered a specific subset of entertainment, and it left a void that hasn’t quite been filled by any other print publication. Thankfully, we can revisit the glory days of Starlog via the Internet Archive.

    The archive is a non-profit group created to build an Internet library accessible to the general public. The site covers a wide range of topics in mediums such as text, moving images, audio, and even archived websites.

    You’ll find 224 issues of Starlog in the digital library’s halls, and it’s delightful to flip back through the past. They’ve been available for a while, and it’s worth checking them out to read about the making of movies like Blade Runner and other sci-fi classics. If nothing else, browse a few issues just to enjoy the tongue-in-cheek cartoons that appear throughout the pages.

    You can browse Starlog online, download a PDF, or get an e-reader file. All of the options are free, but you can make a donation to the Internet Archive if you’d like to help preserve the vast amounts of information on the website.

    Andy Capp

    The first UK Andy Capp book was issued in 1958. Thereafter, two per year were issued to 1979 inclusive, then one per year for 1980, 1981 and 1982. Then a strange thing happened – in 1982, when the landscape issue of No 46 was issued, so too was the magazine No 46 issued, with the same picture and the same comic strips ! There had only been one magazine prior to this, which was issued in 1981, un-numbered, and titled “This is your Life, Andy Capp”. These magazines then continued to No 51 in 1984 where the numbering finally ended. Also, in 1980 (for 1981), “bumper” annuals started titled “The World of Andy Capp” which continued one per year until the last issue in 1994 for 1995.

    In addition, Mirror Books released a smaller set of books in a series titled “Laugh Again with Andy Capp” subtitled ‘ A Daily Mirror Re-Capp’ starting in 1968 for 23 issues, the last being published in 1980. The final book, No 23, had a different title of ‘Presenting Andy Capp’ and only subtitled as ‘Laugh Again with Andy Capp No 23’
    Ravette Books published some colour books, two in 1992 and two in 1993.

    A series of Andy Capp books started in 2004 by David and Charles Books which lasted for three years.

    In 2014 Pedigree Books issued an Andy Capp Yearbook 2015 along with their regular release of annuals for 2015.

        Okay! They are already prepared. Now just to upload them. When they are ready, I will tell you.

        As for future Newspaper Strips, I will ask again first, just to be sure what is needed. I will list them again first, so you can know what is available again.

    The Complete Collection of Calvin and Hobbes was from 18th November 1985 until 31st December 1995 as a newspaper comic strip.

    I got fortunate and found the whole collection very easy.

    I am uploading it to you.

    Or if you click on this link and look at bottom of page in small print it tell you can download the whole collection.

    It is very interesting when you open it it.

    It gives folders by years, then when you open individual folder of you, it has numbers which represents each month, for example if you select 2 it represents february, then when that folder is open all the strips are there for that month.

    Neat! Cool!
