the flights of flopear

Just last week, I posted about the delights of British girls' comics, and a very entertaining discussion ensued. And just a couple of days later, I not only won a bunch of '80s issues of Judy on eBay but I also found a 1987 Bunty annual in a charity shop near work.

So snowballjane, sorry about the crappy quality of the image (no scanner at home, so I had to use my camera phone), but this is for you....


If I can scan more stuff in I will, because the Bunty annual+Judy=comedy gold. All too familar comedy gold. Seriously, I felt like I'd read some of the stories last week, rather than twenty years ago...

Yay! Have just discovered, courtesy of skipping back through puritybrown's blog, that Jinty was responsible for some of the stories I've never quite forgotten even though they're hazy - The Human Zoo, and Land of No Tears (which was the one I wittered about in your previous post).

*squints at text* Flopear! That's what he was called. Brilliant!

I actually had my parents searching their loft for Bunty annuals last week, sadly to no avail.

It's entirely possible that the bookshop I worked in has some Bunty annuals - I know they have plenty of that sort of thing. Anyone wants to drop me a wish list, I'm at pisica at gmail dot com.

Oh, oh, oh! Did Lisa tell you that the menus in Jo'Burger in Rathmines are all old seventies comic annuals? They're just the books, with the menu stuck to one page so that you can read all the rest! It's awful, because they're like, "Are you ready to order?" and we were like, "If we order, will you take the Whizzer annuals away?"

(Hunger won, though.)
