Good ol' British comics

*sigh* Those were the good ol' days...my big brother and sister would reminise of their childhood days when they'ds wake up bright and early each morning to catch the morning paper which would contain the daily Beano or Dandy comic strips in a seperate copy by itself in small thin booklet forms. They'd both fight over who gets to read it first...then down the line I would appreciate their efforts in saving every scrap of those comics so I could enjoy them when I finally learnt to read and write. Dandy,Beano,Beezer,Topper...you name it...I love 'em all!
Sadly I dunno any place that sells reprints of them around here, if anyone can help me locate those ol' goodies I'd really appreciate it.

Also what got me to start up this topic is because I've always been curious as to who are the real talents behind these comics as there's hardly been any mention of them except that they do make appearances now and then in the comics themselves. Does anyone have any feedback or information at all with regards to this? *.* Man, I think these guys have eluded recognition far enough and deserve the proper credits they deserve. No one produces comics like they do anymore, so this is my contribution to them, to thank them for bringing hours of giggles and smiles to my childhood days.
