I'm surprised that none o' you lassies have mentioned "Girl". Another DC Thompson creation brought out as a girl's equivalent of "Eagle". Now there was a comic. I remember before its launch scores of black Humber 'Hawk' saloons with a gold eagle on top toured all the cities.

BTW. Another strip in "Film Fun' and the one I remember most, was Laurel and Hardy. biggrin.gif

We use to keep the comics after we had finished with them and Elaine McFarlane's dad Tommy use to come up and get them, not sure what they did with them when they were finished.

I remember my dad coming in with loads of comics (we probably still have some in the loft after the 15 years or so since we got them), i loved reading the Beano and Dandy, i read the Bunty and Jackie but they were always a bit girly for me (i was a right tomboy)

And here was me thinking he went out a bought them all for me tongue.gif

We still get The Broons and Oor Wullie every year at christmas

There are three things everyone should do every day.
Number one is laugh.
Number two is think -- spend some time in thought.
Number three, you should have your emotions move you to tears.
If you laugh, think and cry, that's a heck of a day.

It's been a while since the last posting, but I've just got round to reading them.
Every week, my old aunty bought my big sister and me the Bunty and Judy. We would read our own one then swap. Do you remember that, in one of them, you got a gold-plated bracelet if your letter was chosen for printing? I used to write and write, but never got a bracelet. My aunty said it was all a fiddle and nobody ever won one.
On a Sunday my dad, who worked for the Daily Record, would bring home a bundle of comics for us, and one of them was calledHere and Now (?), Now and Then (?) - I can't remember its name, but it was an encyclopedia-type comic and I loved it. Does anybody remember it? unsure.gif
