There's no one else...

With cap and thought a man walks the streets. Grim is too an emotive word to describe this world and all others he is about to occupy. Yet, he walks where there is no one else.


  1. Once I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get four emails with the identical comment. Is there any manner you may take away me from that service? Thanks! casino bonus

  2. Jovan, don't know where else I can make a comment so I've come here, although it doesn't refer to the post. From about 12 to 14 I read scores of war picture comics, a shilling each. Why were the American ones so inferior to ours. The artwork was poor and the stories ridiculous. Often Korean war red-baiting or introducing things like German aircraft carriers when none saw service. Can't remember the titles but very poor.

  3. John, I think there are a number of reasons why the British ones are better. I think they were written/illustrated by people who had a closer experience of war. As Europeans they had seen first hand the effects of nationalism and patriotism. The British comics are interested in individuals and how they relate to their peers. Also the publishers were practised at these type of stories - the oldest comic I have is a Thriller Picture Library from 1956 called To Victory with the Iron Duke (issue 102) and the first War Picture Library is published in 1958.
    Those are my quick thoughts on why I think the British ones are better.
