Boys Adventure Comic blog

Post by Richard S. » 07 Sep 2016, 21:39

so I created a new blog, early days yet, just trying it out really

http://boysadventurecomics.blogspot.co.uk/

It does what it says on the tin really, my interest is on Boys adventure comics from the '50s to now

I'll be trying to schedule posts so that there'll be something new to look at every day

Feedback etc. always welcome

cheers

thanks, what I've written for each entry is a bit sparse I know but I'm keen to post something every day so that people get into the habit of stopping by and seeing what's there. Hopefully I'll cover some of the more obscure comics rather than just mainstream stuff. Starting with Scouse Mouse comic certainly comes under that heading but then there's very little about Scouse Mouse on t'internet so it's good to see.

I'm trying to make sure I post weekly and if I can get a little more in than one a week, then I am quietly chuffed. One of my next articles will be about Power Man despite not owning a single copy, but Paw Broon has scanned his one copy and it has given me a surprise that will make most people happy.
I started to say something sensible but my parents took over my brain!

How I regret not buying the couple of copies I once saw in 30th century comics, <sigh>

just set up a facebook group as well, under my 'Guy Greenway' facebook alias [to keep life & comics slightly separate] - maybe see you over there?

Jealous. It's taken over a year for me to get to 68 posts and 12,000 hits.

on the other hand that means (on average) you're getting 7 times the readers per posting than I am! Jealous of that.

507 posts, 55,000 views, since April 2014. The number of posts is a lot down to prolific co-writer Mistyfan! She has written over 300 of them in that time.
