FDC: Comics in the United Kingdom

Comics are, or at least were, a childhood institution in the UK for boys and girls alike.

This FDC from Royal Mail celebrates those carefree days of reading comics, with front covers and characters of some of the most popular titles.

Stamp Details

From left to right, top to bottom:

  • Dandy
  • Beano
  • Eagle
  • Topper
  • Tiger
  • Bunty
  • Buster
  • Valiant
  • Twinkle
  • 2000AD

Some of these titles are still running, but many have seen their last issue.

I was strictly a Beano reader, before going on to 2000AD, which still sounds futuristic to me. It might be where my love of science fiction began.
