Later on it was The fabulous furry freak brothers, Fat Freddies cat, and Brain Damage.

Am I showing my age yet?
Stuff about Brain Damage here, because I am shameless :wink:

The usual, dandy, beano, topper etc before moving onto Marvel and DC stuff.

Also, Total Carnage was a favourite. The artwork on Army Of Darkness remains gobsmacking to this day.

I've still got every Marvel, DC etc comic Ive ever had under my bed. My 3 year old loves looking through them but gets heavy handed so he's now got a box of all the weird ones I've got from blind bags to go through.

As a really small kid I read just the Dandy!
As a 10yo or so it was the Transformer comics and in my teens the Deaths Head and Deaths Head 2 comics but not a lot else.
Never got into Spiderman, Superman or even Batman at all!

Beano, Dandy, Topper and those awesome small comic books just called 'Football' in regards to compilations.

Asterix and Obelix books which I more hardback comics were just the bees knees though. Probably showing my age here

Just a heads up, theres a new IDW comic bundle on the Humble Bundle for this week, for a few quid you can get a whole slew of Transformers and GI Joe Comics (including the gloriously bonkers Tom Scioli's Transformers vs. GI Joe) and if you pay the top tier which is about £11.00 it includes the Revolution tie ins so far, which is IDW's attempt to create a 'Hasbroverse' bringing together Transformers, GI Joe, Action Man and MASK. It's really ,really worth it.

You also get Street Fighter x GI Joe, but that's utter bobbins.

I used to love reading 'look in' which was more a kids magazine than a comic as I remember. Also loved the beano, seem to remember that after we moved when I was about 8 the local newsagent had a box of previous month or so back issues for something like 10p each, which was awesome.

I've never really been into superheroes so most of the comics I had as a kid were Scooby Doo, Top Cat and Laff-a-Lympcis.
I did get into 2000AD when I was in high school, I had a great big stack of weekly issues that I ended up giving away. I did keep the monthlies which I still have somewhere.

Look In, Smash Hits but my main love was Battle which then led to Battle Action Force, Crash, ZZap 64 magazines were so good back then. I have loads of them especially Battle and Crash magazine possibly the greatest magazine ever the artwork was amazing. Maybe Super Play can give it a run for its money. I had every single issue of Super Play amongst others which I binned about fifteen years ago, I could cry thinking back

Usual ones like The Beano, 2000 AD, Spiderman and I have a complete run somewhere of the 400-odd issues of the UK Transformers comic. I also have a collection of the Thunderbirds comics somewhere too.

One I need to find is my Spiderham comic, only have one issue but its brilliant! Peter Porker is Spiderham and his arch nemesis is Ductor Doom! I found in Spain whilst on holiday many moons ago, read it to death but I can't find it now nor can I find another copy.

Magazines I guess are the likes of Amiga Format, Games Master, C&VG, Mountain Biking UK, Fast Car, Max Power, Revs, Performance VW, and What Hifi? amongst others. I find it hard to throw old mags away too, I like to get my monies worth!
