    I temember having a comic in the mid 60's that was dedicated to Lady Penelope from Thunderbirds. I can't recall the name of the comic but I remember having a free ring with her insignia - the letter P stamped in pink on the front of it! I think I also had a toy version of her pink Rolls Royce! Happy Days.

    During football season, the Geography class got to become VERY FAMILIAR with the geography of the gridiron (football field) every Friday. The fact that we got to watch films of the upcoming opposing team had NOTHING to do with the fact that the head football coach also happened to be our geography teacher. Ha, ha ha!!!!

    Oh well your geography lessons weren't so boring if they were interspersed with teenage angst! As the teacher said - far more interesting tham boring gepgraphy. One of you could have ended up as an agony aunt!

    Maggie you will see from my previous post my Geography teacher[male] insisted on reading through the Dear Cathy and Claire problem page from Jackie every lesson instead of , in his words , the boring Geography syllabus . Amazingly I and my fellow students all passed A Level Geography despite having to endure those teenage angst problem letters in all their graphic detail for several terms .

    What about the girls' comics? I avidly read Bunty and Judy and in my teens all the girls loved Jackie which was the basis for a recent musical.

    The NME cane latet when we were older and 'cool'!

    All my comics were pre-decimalisation! Like 1950s.

    For me it was the Beano, Topper, Whizzer and Chips and a few issues of Cheeky Weekly before music took over and it was NME, Sounds, Record Mirror, Melody Maker and the punk fanzines.;)

    Whizzer1969.jpg WHIZZER and CHIPS was a fairly short lived 2 in 1 comic printed around the late 60s and early 90s. CHIPS was a pull out centre . Whizzer had already amalgamated KNOCKOUT.:confused:

    Eagle - Dan Dare, pilot of the future on the front two pages in colour. Luck of the Legion on the centre page under the cutaway drawing. I now know that L Ashwell Wood was not always technically accurate in his depiction but generally gave a good idea of the internal works of many machines. Reading material from McDonald Hastings and a cowboy feature featuring Jeff Arnold and his trusty side kick Luke - who cut his teeth on a branding iron. Also PC 49 = Willoughby who also ran a boys club in the east end.

    Also read the Topper and Beezer which were similar to Dandy and Beano but slightly larger format. Beryle the Pweil was in one of them, not dis-similar to Dennis the Menace. Also recall Colonel Blink

    As a Geordie I should support Viz but good taste precludes me from doing so hence I would opt for the Beezer especially the Numbskulls I love the concept . I recall whilst at school our Geography teacher developed a penchant for the girls magazine Jackie and a lesson would never pass without him reading the Dear Kathy and Claire page out aloud , in his words it was far interesting than a boring Geography syllabus . :eek:
