Old Comic

I have been tidying some cupboards recently and came across this very old comic...
Quite a find really and a sobering lesson in how appalling and silly some of the stories were many decades ago... (created in Australia by Peter Chapman and published from 1954 to 1961) ...


As well as the totally silly story and badly drawn images, this appalling advertisment on the back page (an Australian company too!) is a reminder of hurtful language in use in the 1950's ... hopefully things have improved ...
