Re: British / American Comics in China

Final scan! This is the last character in the three comics I found. This one is killing me as I'm sure I've seen the little dragon-like character in a comic or cartoon before. Is it Hanna-Barbera?

Re: British / American Comics in China

This strip I've struggled to identify. It's a strange tale which ends with a doctor in the modern era waking up or using a strange vapour. Does anyone recognise this? Rough translation is "Afterlife Revenge Story" 再世复仇记 zaishi fuchou ji https://i.pinimg.com/originals/7d/cb/80/7dcb805db9a03001a8ae2b3...

Re: British / American Comics in China

This is Fritzi Ritz, who I believe is Nancy's aunt. In this comic she is called 'Fei' Aunty (fei = cost / spend) 費姑母 However, I believe in other comics she is referred to as Fritzi 'Fei Li Zi' 費麗滋 Her boyfriend Phil Fumble also has a literal translation as 'Fei Li' 菲力 (Phil) https://i.pinimg.com/ori...

Re: British / American Comics in China

Here's Chic Young's 'Blondie', although interestingly in the Chinese version the names are reversed. The husband, Dagwood Bumstead, is called Blondie (白朗弟) "Bai lang di". From reading it, the wife (Blondie Dagwood) is not named. I only have three issues of this comic so she may have been named in ot...

If you find any Commando or War ones, I will happily buy a couple off you just for the sake of being able to have some in the collection.
No problem, I'll keep my eye out for you!
Cheers,

British / American Comics in China

Hello everyone, Thought I'd share some recent finds I've had whilst working in China. The first lot are DC Thomson translations of Beano and Dandy.
