Fun List-based Quiz

Post by TwoHeadedBoy »

Anyone ever been on that "List Challenges" site? Been addicted to it lately...

Just made this one, on British comics - you just tick off how ever many you've read, there's 230 of them in roughly chronological order. I scored 142!

I know I've missed loads, and I know there's some inaccurate information there, but it's just for fun :D

Have a go?

It's an... eclectic list! I scored 52 and I only got that much because I've read all the Pete Loveday ones :-)

Can you clarify what counts as having read a comic? Do you have to have read an actual issue, or will an annual do? Or a "best of" collection? For the individual strips such as Oor Wullie or Flook, is it enough to have read one episode or do you have read a collection (or read it regularly in a newspaper)?
Is it weird to have no interest in keeping or collecting free gifts?

I reckon any of those count as having read it :)

An interesting part of it, is it shows me statistics on how many people know each one, it builds a nice picture... From the looks of things, so far the most popular British comic is Andy Capp, with a score of 100%.

Interests me anyway :lol:

99 for me. Many of them I have seen, but never been interested in reading them or wasting my time on them. The amount of bad Viz clones on that list is beyond a joke.
I started to say something sensible but my parents took over my brain!

101, which was pretty good seeing as I'm sure I've probably read a few more of the story papers and adult comics but can't be 100% sure which ones.

Comics I'm aware that I've definitely missed, whoops:

-Warrior
-Buddy
-Look-In
-Doctor Who Weekly
-Red Dwarf Smegazine
-Thunderbirds, Stingray and Captain Scarlet (Nineties reprints)
-Spaceship Away
-Striker 3D
-Wildcat
-LOADS of Marvel and Fleetway reprints - Batman, Real Ghostbusters, Hero Turtles, Ren & Stimpy, Beavis & Butt-Head, Madballs, Mighty Max, Monster In My Pocket...
-Several "youngster" titles, such as Pingu, Postman Pat and Sesame Street
-The Best of Beezer and The Best of Topper
-The Best of Whoopee!
-Star Wars Weekly
-Welsh titles such as Grasshopper/Tadpole

It won't let you edit them once ten people have had a go at it (messes up the points system or something), so I'll do the whole thing again in a few months maybe (or someone else can?).
