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The Dandy, The Beano, and Comic Cuts, are all British, although in modern times British comics have been largely superseded by American comic books and Japanese manga.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

    Wow-what an amazing resource! Thank you! I’ve found so many comics here that I’ve been looking for.

    One title I can’t find here is Deadline. Is it on this site? If not, is there somewhere else that I might look?

    Thanks again. This site has made my day.

    Was there a comic – or a magazine – called ROMEO in the 60s and 70s? I’ve seen a few covers and it looks very popart/psychedelic?
    Have you posted any of these magazines on here?

    I’ve added the issues from the updates into the correct spots in the Battle Picture Library so this title must be up to date now.
    The last Library i’m gonna take care of is War Picture Library, but that one has alot of updates so i have to reorganize this one complete, probably ready somewhere next week.

    Some of the issues of Shiver and Shake have been badly cropped, i.e. the left and right edges are missing from the pages plus the double paged centre spread (also cropped) has to be rotated in order to read.

    Here are some upgraded issues of Shiver and Shake which I have found which fix these issues (credit to huckyc).

    Shiver and Shake issues 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 43, 44, 52.

    I’ve reorganized War Picture Library, almost 200 new titles (in the range 1959-1969) included from all updates this year, so it might be a good idea to browse it to see if you missed updates.
    I am finished with the Picture Libraries for now.

    Next thing i will be working on next week is the 500+ various comics categorize in a few pages like i did with the small titles from the Picture Libraries.
