I grew up reading a bunch of comics.
I initially started with the Marvel / DC types, then moved on to the British comics such as 2000AD and Tiger whilst in secondary school, and returned to Marvel / DC after that when i studied in the UK.
I have a whole range of comic reading materials, but today had a bit of a nostalgia time googling the 80s British comics. I have not seen these comics for a long time now. And of the characters I remember reading, only Judge Dredd and Dan Dare remain in recent memory. So i decided to check out the titles i used to read. So here are some of them (i would be happy if others can jog my memory too)…
I used to like this series as it combined classic noir sleuth stories in a future context – with investigations revolving around robot crimes.
Strontium Dog wasn’t one of my top stories in those days, but i sort of liked the concept of mutant bounty hunters.
Nemesis The Warlock
Nemesis the warlock was one fantastic comic series that i liked because of the extreme artwork. The stories were unusual and surreal, but the art and concept was out of this world.
Rogue Trooper was a popular story amongst my friends at the time. This was a classic war story that kids my age then loved. The twist was that this was a story about a Genetically engineered soldier who was looking for his commanders who betrayed them.
Slaine was a typical barbarian tale that was quite popular with kids our age then.
