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.
