What boys comics did you grow up with?

#1
For me it all started with Battle, the first issue back in the early 70's came with a wall poster of what a British Infantryman would have wore/carried at D Day, second issue was stickers of Army badges.

Used to love the D-Day Dawson series

I used to get Warlord as well (think that was were I came across Union Jack Jackson - Royal Marine serving with USMC), joined the Warlord club then brought the spin off Fireball (another club to join!) and occasionally Victor, always got the annuals for Christmas though.

I never liked Action though

Never had any football comics though

Beano and Dandy.

Used to buy them from the YMCA in Fallingbostal!

Hmm let me think, Battle, Warlord and Victory, god knows where they came from, must have been jumble sales or mates mums clearing out the cupboards, 2000ad and the one with Dan Dare as well but the new version

Battle Action Force (which then split back into two)

2000AD (I still read the graphic novels)

Hmmm just had to think there, I said Victor when I meant Valiant pretty much saw all of them at one time.

I can remember seeing the ACF and ATC adverts and thinking that 13 seemed a long way off to a 7 year old

Battle and and Action. Then Starlord and 2000AD for a while - Although "Starlord" was more camp than "Tharg", the stories were more grittier. I used to get the Commando pocket books every now and then. I see them over here, translated into Finnish, and can even remember some of cover pictures from when I used to read them!

Current Exhibition at The National Army Museum in London on the Commando books

2000AD for me - I was a die-hard fan of Judge Dredd and also was really into Rogue Trooper and Strontium Dog. The best Dredd story ever was the Apocalypse War, awesome even now. I really looking forward to the new Dredd film starring Karl Urban. The one with Stallone has grown on me over the years but is still way too camp for my liking (a gold codpiece...for Christ's sake!).
