Yes, this is a Damian Darke story from Debbie comic - can't remember the exact title or date of publication but I can check and post again later (though it looks like I've been beaten to it!!). Damian Darke originally appeared in Spellbound as the resident storyteller. When Spellbound was merged into Debbie the stories still appeared regularly and even right into Debbie's own merger with Mandy. The character also appeared in Debbie annuals and Debbie Picture Story Libraries.

While I'm on the subject, I'll take another one...

"Revolution in Space" (translation of the Swedish titel
Copy: D. C. T. Syndication

Is about agent Leo Chase of the Galactic Union who is given a mission by his father, admiral Chace to find out what happened to a space ship that's gone missing. He finds out that his father was replaced by a robot and he had an subsonic device that took out the missing spaceship. The real admiral is held captive on an alien spacecraft... Bada-bing bada-boom, and Leo got things sorted out and everything is alright.

I actually recognize the style of the artist but I can't place it at all, so i hope anyone can enlighten me.

Am I right to think that "Jason Wilde" is influenced by the "Jason King" tv-show?

That Revolution In Space could be a Starblazer re-jigged to be a comic serial. If not, it is possibly a Hotspur serial as the artistic style did not appear until late 70's/early 80's.
I started to say something sensible but my parents took over my brain!

I'm back! This time with a question about concerning one of my favourite creators, Denis McLoughlin.

The comic "Devil's Spur", that ran in Bullet, is this a one-shot or has the hero Mike Shannon appeared in other ones?
(I'm guessing it's a one-shot, as this seems to be the norm when it comes to McLoughlins comics.)

I am right that the comic below is "Devil's Spur", and not "The Frozen Man"?

Story: Mike Shannon, ex British agent, gets roped in to "babysit" a scientist, Dr. Alec Shepherd, who's going to climb Djävulstoppen (rough transl. the Devil's Peak, or Devil's Spur if you may) at the Himalayas.

What issues did it occur in?
Who wrote it?

Well, here I go again:

The swedish comics book Fantomen ran three different versions of "Robin Hood". One of those was copyright IPC.
My questions are:
Who's behind the comic?
Where was it published?

The picture is too big to post it here, so here's the url:

[Edit]
Seems like a few of the episodes are copyright Syndication International. It seems to me that it is the same strip as the ones with copy IPC. Do anyone know what Syndication International was?

Long time no see.

I stumbled on another daily that supposedly is British.

"Pappas pojke", translation Dad's boy, found in a Swedish news paper in 1946 to 1947.
Here are some examples:

The Swedish weekly magazine Allers published many early British comics in early 20th century.
Comics like "Weary Willie & Tired Tim", "Fun on Board the Mary Anne", "Homeless Hector", "Basil & Bert" and "Pitch and Toss".

Another comic that I think must be British, but I can't find anything about, is this:

"Ur en djurskötares intressanta dagbok", translation "From a Zookeeper's interesting diary" found in Allers around 1918 to 1919.
The plot revolves around an animal keeper, his mischievous nephews and the animals at the park.
Here are some examples:
