End of Sixties Charlton Comics (imaginery) nostalgia

As a 8-11 years old little boy, I remember that from time to time my family went to visit friends in Dunkirk. We were two boys and this other family had two girls. We played a lot outside, ball, badminton or in the snow, and numerous board games too. It was a bit far from our home so we often stayed to sleep.

But well, I liked to read, I love quiet, I also remember that the father always had a good pile of these very cheap comics named Akim or Zembla (pseudo Tarzan, of course). I used to read everything I found, in these mid-seventies…

These were made by the Italians, they had dozens of titles.



Today I found on the net a torrent full of “Charlton Superhero Comics“. Something unknown from me! I read this one and was very pleased to find the advertisments. Awfully cute and cheap : I could almost FEEL the excitement of little kids asking to their parents for the frontier cabin, the stamps, or any catalog they would flip through in loop, every night in the quiet of the bed, or under a tree.

These quiet empty afternoons, where you were watching the clouds for hours, on your back, are almost included in the pages I read tonight.

Thanks for reading! Bye!

I’m sick these days. Sorry for the lack of updates…

    Good to have a little nostalgia. Being a girl …. I remember Jinty or Bunty. UK little girl comics of the 1970’s, and my memory is every Saturday morning walking with my mother to the bakery along the road to choose cake, then to the newsagent for my comic and her weekly magazine, heading home to devour our own chosen treats. Aah, the bliss of childhood memories.
