*Humour Comics: A substantial top-up to our stocks of Sparky, the 1960s companion title to Dandy and Beano, with a slightly more whimsical bent than either of its stablemates. Well-remembered features from Sparky include our eponymous hero – a racist caricature who’s shockingly un-PC in retrospect – ‘Dreamy Dave and Dozy Dora’, ‘The Moonsters’, ‘Hungry Horace’, ‘Keyhole Kate’, and ‘Pansy Potter, the Strongman’s Daughter’ (a title which only rhymes if you pronounce it wrong). Plus, of course, one can never speak of Sparky without mentioning ‘Invisible Dick’. (No, really. There’s a rule and everything.) This selection of almost 50 numbers ranges from 1965’s #5 to the Christmas 1968 issue (#206, pictured), averaging VG or FN, very presentable copies of a seldom-seen series, with plenty of special issues – Easter, April Fools’, etc.
