Remembering Alf Tupper, Johnny Cougar and Other Sports Heroes


As I was thinking about sports-related comics just this past Sunday, I was happier than usual to read this piece on corny, old sports comics of Great Britain's past. It's a straight up nostalgia piece, and they gave a little too much ink to Dez Skinn dreaming up a new publishing project, but I like the art. I nicked the picture above from a Roy of the Rovers web site, and if you go there you can find a picture of the characters playing music with Spandau Ballet.
