An early Golden comic in the golden age the 30's..



Well here is my take on Golden comic..recieved from ebay today...
I like the limited colour of gold yellow it sure suits the name..
Love the Header of the comic title..love the Beano to do this one day...the header takes the shape of the readers meeting the editor Sam Smiles!! Maybe Euan Kerr should of changed his name for The Beano to Euan Merry..The Dandy's previous Editor Morris Heggie to Morris Happy..the thirties comics were certainly a smiley time fro comics..

The cover strip is half good and half wooden to me...it falls between two stools..the handsome character Lt Daring has no expression or fun like Jolly Roger...I think Scooby Doo though good had this problem as well..the adult characters don't have has much personality unlike the cartooney Scooby..If the characters were drawn in a Flintstone style it would work even better.





Reg Perrott
This strip needs more pictures it would work even better as a two pager..


UPDATE artist name Fred Robinson thanks to Lew Stringer for info..

I liked this strip..wished the comic had more cartoon strips like this and the cover..I like the ending of the Monkey driver capturing the animal Bear..







Secretly Smugglers Castle by Arthur Mansbridge




Both good stories.

Love the well drawn Windmill in Little Brother some great shading.

Secretly Smugglers Castle is also good..though not so much expression..the mystrious Monk at the end is a nice cliffhanger..

The rest of the comic are text stories which are not for me..kids sure liked to read then..

Would I buy another Golden comic..the answer is no...it needed more humour pages...Getting Tip-Top soon hopefully with more humour pages..

See Lews take on Golden comic here..Great minds think alike :))

The Header of Golden comic changes at Christmas..shame the header doesn't change every week like other comics with Roy Wilson art on co0ver..

We are due another Golden age..lets hope the Tennies will be that:)

Hi Peter, I didn't know there was a space limit on these blogs. Could you let me know where to find this info as my blog's been running 4 years so I must be near the limit myself. :-(

Many thanks for the tip Peter. However, on mine it tells me:
"You are currently using 425MB (41%) of your 1024MB" - so as I've been running my blog twice as long as yours, but still have over 50% left it looks like your images are taking up too much memory. Images at 72dpi and saved at 7 (medium) or 8 (high) in Photoshop works for me.

Hi. I'm doing some family research into my Grandfather, Reg Perrott, who illustrated this comic I've just found out from this link! If you have any information, knowledge, or are just a fan of Reg Perrott's work, I'd love to hear from you.

I have created a Facebook page for him and would appreciate any information people have, or just as a focus to discuss information about Reg.

If anyone reading this could please replicate to other comic fan sites, I'd really appreciate it.

Many thanks
