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The Dandy, The Beano, and Comic Cuts, are all British, although in modern times British comics have been largely superseded by American comic books and Japanese manga.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

    List of incomplete Valiants, thanks to Jacko.

    I had previously reported a few issues of Valiant that were either incomplete or damaged in some way. I have finally managed to check all 712 issues of Valiant and I have found further issues which are either incomplete or damaged, however, I have not been able to find any complete/alternate scans to replace them with.

    Issues with missing pages:

    Valiant #012 (1962-12-22) – 2 missing pages – ‘Jack O’Justice'(page 31) + back page (page 32) are missing. This issue also has some damage on page 13 (‘Steel Claw’) and page 16 (‘To Glory We Steer’)

    Valiant #021 (1963-02-23) – 2 missing pages – ‘Percy the Problem Child'(page 15) + the letters page (page 18) are missing. This issue also has some minor damage on page 5 (‘Captain Hurricane’)

    Valiant #173 (1966-01-22) – 1 missing page – probably the back page humour strip ‘It’s a Dog’s Life’)

    Valiant #332 (1969-02-08) – 2 missing pages – ‘Raven on the Wing’ (3rd page of a 3-page story) and probaby an ads/columns page are missing

    Valiant #367 (1969-10-11) – 2 missing pages – 2nd (middle) page of ‘House of Dolmann’ (usually a 3-page story) and probaby an ads/columns page are missing

    Valiant #590 (1974-05-04) – 2 missing pages – both pages of ‘Yellowknife of the Yard’ are missing

    Valiant #610 (1974-10-19) – 8-page pull-out booklet featuring Mytek the Mighty is missing

    Valiant #669 (1975-12-20) – 4 pages of ads/columns/one-page humour strips are missing.

    The following issues are just damaged in some way (i.e. torn edges, cut-outs etc)

    Valiant #011 (1962-12-15) – page 16 (‘To Glory We Steer’)
    Valiant #013 (1962-12-29) – page 16 (‘To Glory We Steer’)
    Valiant #015 (1963-01-12) – page 20 (Shorty the Sheriff)
    Valiant #071 (1964-02-08) – page 27 (‘Jack O’Justice’)
    Valiant #162 (1965-11-06) – page 14 (‘The Nutts’)
    Valiant #181 (1966-03-19) – page 21 (‘Steel Claw’)
    Valiant #229 (1967-02-18) – page 39 (‘The Crows’)
    Valiant #488 (1972-04-29) – page 39 (‘Billy Bunter’)

    I hope that complete/undamaged scans of the above will all be tracked down one day. Thanks in advance if anyone is able to assist with replacing any of the above.

    Produced by Innovative Communications, Triffik! was a British weekly comic that was intended to appeal to modern kids more than existing fare such as the Beano. It launched with extremely optimistic sales expectations and correspondingly expensive publicity and costly high print runs, and died a quick death after only twelve issues.

      I think we still need the first issue of the year, Buster 1982-01-02. I wondered if that week had no issue, but after checking the stories inside of 1981-12-26 and 1982-01-09, it’s clear that an installment is missing; Barry and Boing ends 1981 with the current storyline resolved, and 9th January’s installment starts with them facing a stampede, clearly following on from a cliffhanger ending.

        Terry Bave 1931 – 2018

        I was so sorry to hear of the sad passing of the mighty Terry Bave. Terry of course drew Calculator Kid for Cheeky Weekly and the successful character continued in Whoopee! after Cheeky’s comic came to an end. There was a time when it seemed Terry had artwork appearing in just about every comic in publication, with a never-ending roster of hugely popular characters created in collaboration with his wife Shiela. I always found Terry’s artwork to be very appealing, and he depicted a world that was, despite the regular appearance of bullies who were a staple of comic scripts of the period, very cosy and reassuring as justice was always served by the end of the story. It’s impossible to imagine the heyday of British comics without Terry’s vibrant and always amusing strips. What a great legacy he leaves behind.

        My thoughts are with his family, friends and countless fans.

    Re: The Hornet.

    I have discovered that pages 7-26 in Hornet 435 [1972-01-08] are the same as in Hornet 490 [1973-01-27].

    The pages seem to belong to the latter, which means there are 20 pages missing from issue 435 [1972-01-08]. Therefore, this issue will need to be rescanned with the missing 20 pages.

    Also, pages 28 & 29 are missing from Hornet 586 [1974-11-30].

    Sent this message last year and got no response, but figured there’s no harm in trying again: There was a comic Grant, Bisley, and Wagner (some of the guys from 2000ad) did in the 90s called The Dirty Dog, aka Shit The Dog that was released in 4 “poster magazines” and was featured later in some issues of a comic called Wasted that was released by a comic company called Bad Press Ltd. Is there a chance you could get those up on this site? I have a few issues of Wasted and the first issue of Shit The Dog and wish to read the rest of them. There was also a comic similar to Viz called Gas that I’m interested in, if you can get it.

    Thanks for the latest update, especially the issues of Smash and Scorcher. It’s great to see the Scorcher annuals finally turning up.

    However, from the latest update, Scorcher 209 [1974-01-05] is incomplete – the second page of the ‘Nipper’ story (page 21) is missing.

    Otherwise, there seems to be only 11 issues of Scorcher still to find. These are:

    153, 157, 158, 165, 167, 213, 214, 217, 219, 225, 227.

    A note about Scorcher issue 217.
    I found some information on Blimey! The Blog of British Comics by Lew Stringer.
    He mentions that there are 2 different issues cover dated 23-02-1974. Due to a printing error, the second one is actually the 02-03-1974 issue.
    Therefore, if anyone has an issue dated 23-02-1974 with a different cover to the one on this page, it is actually the 02-03-1974 issue (i.e. issue #217) and is one of the few remaining issues that we still need to find. Apologies if this fact is already known to Scorcher fans. . .

    I know I’ve mentioned this one before. Scorcher issue 064 [1971-03-27] is also still incomplete – Page 15 (2nd page of ‘The Amazing Strollers’ story) is missing.

      Thanks, last weeks i received 45 stories of Gun Law for the Newspaper Blog also. I will place this compilation on the Compilationsblog under your header today.

      P.S.

      I found that i allready received this copy amongst the others, better place all Gun Law in the Newspaperblog to avoid confusion.

      Thanks, i tried a few but they all worked fine, sometimes it says “oops problem with the network” but you can still push the downloadbutton and it works, has something to do with the larger than 100mb files i believe.

    Hi, It looks as if the link for Tiger tgr55-02 is gone. Mediafire says it does not exist. Just a heads up.
