Very sorry for your loss Peter. It's twenty years this week since my Dad passed away and he's still a miss. Thankfully though I've found that, in time, the grief goes and only the happy memories remain.

I know how you feel Peter...my dad died a few years ago when I was 11.
It was just after I got into the Dandy comic genius competition and he was really proud of me.

Anyone enjoy Dick's work? I liked Happy Families and The Moonbeams:)

Fair point Lew.Maybe Al could set up a Database that we could all contribute to.Something easy to edit and add to as new info on artists and writers becomes known.That way old ground needn't be covered and queries can be directed towards said Database.What do the rest of the members think? :grouphug:

your Cuddly Cap! :wave:


It's a good idea but there are web sites already doing this which have started to include British comics, for example

Comic Book DB http://www.comicbookdb.com/ - I added a small amount of stuff to that.

Grand Comic Book Database http://www.comics.org/

Facebook has also started a comics database: http://apps.facebook.com/comicbooks/

Jenni Scott and others have also been busy trying to write features on British comics creators for wikipedia (although these sometimes meet with the stupidest of editing and are open to abuse).

More comics databases here via Google http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=comics+database

That "Offenbark" strip originally appeared in the first (1964) Boys' World Annual, though I don't think it ever ran in the weekly comic where Parlett drew a regular 'Did You Know?' feature instead. It's a great shame the old fleabag didn't enjoy a longer career as he had everything required to become the canine equivalent of Lion's long-running 'Mowser' imho.

It's worth remembering that some of Parlett's best work during the early 1960s was published in Odhams titles like Boys' World, Eagle and Swift where the higher printing values allowed him to use grey washes - and sometimes full colour. Of these strips the most popular was certainly Eagle's 'prehistoric poodle' Fidosaurus who ran riot every week for several years in a world that was a reasonable facsimile of the Flintstones' Bedrock (he was subsequently renamed 'Pongo' and then 'Fido' for two separate runs of reprints in Buster after IPC bought out Odhams). Happily I managed to acquire the original artwork for one of these sets last weekend and I can't wait to see how it looks framed (he said smugly!).
