and TV Century 21 when it is launched in 1965.
I was born at the beginning of the same year and I'd go for the same as you except for Dandy and I'd add Commando, Giant War Picture Library, Sinister Tales by Alan Class, Tiger and Wham! I'd be kept very busy......and happy!

Mine would be 1970, so I'd buy:

Humour: Beano, Beezer, Topper, Sparky, Whizzer & Chips

Tv Related: TV Comic, TV21

Boys': Tiger, Scorcher

Girls': Sally, June & Schoolfriend, Princess Tina

Nursery; Playhour, Teddy Bear, Jack & Jill[quote]

Reminded me: I'd add Cor! (Humour) and Score'n'Road (boys'), both launched in 1970 to my list too.

My spending so much on comics, it should stop me drinking too much of the beers I'd love to sample!

:lol: With the comics, you can read again and again. With beer, once drunk forever gone.
