Comics were big business throughout the late 19th century and through the 20th century until the early 90’s when the video game explosion put paid to the art of reading. I first got into comics in the mid 70’s. Initially reading friend’s copies of Tiger before I started to get my own. It was Tiger and Roy of the Rovers for me and Bunty and Jackie for the girls (I may have read those too).
Every Saturday I’d head to the newsagent and pick up my comics along with a tin of Top Deck shandy and a quarter of pear drops. Then back home to read during the ad breaks of TISWAS.
The likes of Roy Race, Billy Dane, Hamish Balfour, Kevin Mouse, Dougie Batson, Sintek, Johnny Cougar and many many more. Late 2020 I found a few copies of Tiger and it made me want to read them all over again. Ebay proved expensive for the original paper copies so I went down the route of finding digital copies (like I have for all music, TV, films and books).
I started with Tiger and Roy of the Rovers (obviously) but as you can see the collection now encompasses many more titles and genres.
