Grimly Feendish Nostalgia Trip

A few years ago I started a new nostalgia trip seeking out reprints of mainstream British comics from the 1960s to the 1980s.  I’ve always been interested in comics but I switched to American comics and 2000AD from the late 1970s on.




The Commando collections from 2008 on fed my renewed addiction.  However, the main reason I started this trip was Alan and Leah Moore’s Albion; now only available second hand.

It’s a classic reworking of many of the British comics heroes from my youth.  I was shocked to see what they did with Captain Hurricane but I was really pleased to see Grimly Feendish make a reappearance.

Imagine my delight when Nigel Parkinson posted a a scan of a Grimly Feendish story by Leo Baxendale from the back cover Smash! (Issue 3, 1966).  Pure joy and well worth a visit.

  1. Comics are a great wargame inspiration to me. Every issue is a scenario for a small unit action. G.I. Combat the Haunted Tank is one of my favorites.
