The Comp

Post by Retro1972 » 23 Dec 2018, 21:24

I remember reading some of my sister's Nikki comics in the 80s and the one that stands out was the Comp. I just wandered if it ever came to a conclusion of any kind. Did it change focus to different years in the new term? Had some great Grange Hill type story lines. (Well the first 7or 8 seasons anyway).

Thanks

I can't help with this myself, as I have only a handful of Bunty comics and no Nikkis, but if you haven't already done so, I think you may find it worth reading the long article on this series on the Girls Comics of Yesterday website:

This has a lot of information on the development of the characters and the stories. It also has a short synopsis of the last story, and a scan of the final three panels.

Please note, peace355, and anyone else who may be interested, that I have just posted some clarifying information about THE COMP on your Girls Comics Of Yesterday site.

Cheers. The recent documentary about Bros on BBC four, brought back a few memories of schools in the mid 80s. Worth checking out even if you weren't a fan of the music. It's on iPlayer now.

Philcom actually posted that last episode of the Comp for me in an earlier thread, I hadn't been familiar with the Nikki comics at the time either so also some Nikki episodes there.
