    Default Comics - Battle, Dandy, Beano

    Any bros know where to find these classic comics in Singapore?

    Grew up reading them if you remembered the Rat Pack, Major Easy and Desperate Dan...

    Would love to get my hands on them again.

    If you have kids who are in primary school, they sell it at the book fair. I got mine from various book suppliers. The annual costs around S$5.50 each

    Great! Will check out Holland V. The Dandy and Beano annuals were great companions during my school holidays those days.

    What about "Battle". Anyone seen this around or has it been that long. Found a fan web link. Perhaps some of the pictures will trigger the memory

    My Bash Street Kids Annuals date back to 1976. I have all except 2002 and 1997.

    Now they compile it with Beano, which I think is not as good as single volume.

    My time was in the late 60s right up to the 70s. Each time my mom goes to Lim Tua Tau Market to do her marketing, it would be a quick trip to the mama shop at the market that she will buy both comics for my sis and me. The cartoon characters in my days were and had inspired me to draw were the likes of :

    Korky The Cat, Desperate Dan, Biffo The Bear, Beryl The Peril, Lord Snooty, Colonel Blink, The Badd Lads, The Bash Street Kids, Minnie The Minx, Dennis The Menace, Roger the Dodger,The Iron Fish,Billy the Cat,Billy Whizz, Nibblers,Baby-Face Finlayson, Billy's boots, Corporal Clott, Brassneck, Hot Shotz...etc

    Man....those were the days.
