Funny Fortnightly 4th Nov-17th Nov 1989

I loved Funny Fortnightly and Big Comic Fortnightly and used to have a regurlar order at the newsagent.
The cover is based on Krazy comic 1977 this time the cover is glossy..and no 'ello I'm cheeky!
Also missing off Mike Lacey's signature!!!!! also the boxer has lost the plaster on his forehead!!!!

advert on back of comic..

Hugh McNeill,

It has a game to guess the gag which is quite fun...I'm sure you got it right..check below..

It was quite nice these jokes alongside each reprint page.. The Fun Liner...

Competitions were often in Funny Fortnightly..

This is a reprint from Buster 1972....But was originally from Film Fun early 60's!
By Reg Parlett

Every Fortnight you had to find Willy hiding in the comic...

 He's hiding in the bottom quite tricky to spot...

Sid by Mike Lacey
£5 was a nice prize!

They reprinted from comics that were thinner 
this has a decorated border sometimes this is filled in with small jokes..
This is from Whoopee! 1974 when it was thin...Cor!! comic this was different from Big Comic Fortnightly..which avoided thin comics and the early 70's..

Graham Allen

 Leo Baxendale's super The Swot's and the Blots...
 Funny often showed comic characters from unusual comics...this is from Valiant comic another differences to Big Comic...

This one was from a Girl's comic of the 70's..

This blog post is inspired by

The Beano new logo and a World Record no.3800!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its beaten The Dandy and Comic Cuts..its now official its a Record Breaker!
30th July 1938...during World War 2 time it went fortnightly due to paper rationing then back to weekly reach issue no.3800!!!!!
There are  a World record attempt inside to get the most people dressed has Dennis and Minnie..
Toytopia is running this
Also a drawing contest by toytopiaworld inside The Beano to draw a brand new toy of your design to win VIP tickets to the place..
A new kind of Les Pretend...But this guy is in the fantasy of Wrestling! like how the Mum is so used to it!!!! Its interesting to see dangerous things in The Beano again..of course kids can see this is fantasy and over the top..

Its nice the blue added to the logo..and its always fun having characters popping out of the o!
Its always nice these strips showing old characters...of course I would love to see it has a full page..

from Beano 18th July 2015

It's been great this new artist...and bringing back detail and of course Calamity James.. 

Spot the squelchies!! David Sutherland still drawing brilliant Bash Street kids...hes been working for The Beano from 1960!

Great to see this character back and love seeing fantasy blurred with reality..Nigel Parkinson

Same with this character adventure Tim...hope he gets to do this has two pages...and longer Alan Ryan's work love the longer stories on Dennis the Menace and the fantasy it goes into sometimes...this is a one off..But we seen Walter's Dad become Mayor and the latest is Gnasher has gone missing..

 enjoying the files of Beanotown by Nigel Parkinson

Not the Buster comic character of the 90's...But a reader can ask to be made into a comic character from their nickname...again love the strangeness and fantasy element..

 Great to see Little Plum and Baby-Face in 25th April 2015 issue..quite a lot of the pages come from this comic..

So these are my highlights of this years... The Beano..

Of course Commando has had more issue numbers But is different to a comic being a comic library size and features just one story it came out in 1961 ..hopefully Commando is also a record breaker too...The Home Of Heroes since 1961 — Four stories of action and adventure every two weeks

Nutty highlights I remember fondly...

Here's a comic I remember buying!

love the fantasy of a dog banana which Nigel Parkinson used for Banana Bunch in the Dandy a few years ago..
Also lovely Nutty logo and colours red yellow..
Bananaman by John Geering

 Heres the first encounter with the Nerks..But here pink! I like Bananaman in this period where it didn't have to worry about the tv cartoon program and could be very zany and creative..
Ron Spencer 
all the pages I've put up I remember all those years back..

Barrie Appleby

ghosted by Steve Bright!

loved this character full of imagination..

Steve Bright did a spinoff series heres the last one 14th Sept 1985

22nd Oct 1983 George Martin..
Good fun this one..

Barrie Appleby 22nd Oct 1983

That image of Nosher panel 6 has certainly stayed with me!! Who was the artist please?

George Martin

Alway loved this strip Starship Lollypop preferred this to Nip and Rrip by George...not quite as imaginative..
Tom Williams

Gordon Bell who is of course great at drawing dogs!!

John Geering

Gordon Bell

Love the zaniness...I'm sure Steve Bright wrote this..
Tom Williams artist..

Always liked this character...

Another Barrie Appleby

I remember Hunk bumping the light...funny what stays in your memory..

Nutty was a great comic!
