Why we British grew up so twisted…

FrankiesteingobstopperMy mum used to buy me one of these comics everyday when I was a kid.  My favorite characters were the grotesque ones done by Ken Reid (above).

Ken was one of Manchester’s finest and drew characters like ‘Facheache‘, ‘Jasper The Grasper’ and ‘Hugh Fowler’  (THIS is both demented and hilarious.  Fowler has one emotion and expression; HATE!)

I also loved Leo Baxendale’s stuff too, especially as he drew mainly spotty, obnoxious school kids.  ‘The Swots & The Blots’ was my favorite
