    He was my favourite character as a kid (around 100 or so BC...), but never managed to get any of the comics...

    I was always a fan of Robert E. Howard's creations, specifically Conan and Solomon Kane. As for books, I too loved Far Side and Calvin-n-Hobbes, as well as the ElfQuest series.

    In Poland there were very popular two series of comics : " Tytus,Romek i Atomek" and "Kapitan ┼╗bik" (Captain Wildcat).I had all issues of these.There is a possiblility of buying these at second-hand bookshops or the new re-issued ones.

    As a youngster, back in the 40's, I remember Superman, Captain Marvel,
    Captain Midnight, Flash Gordon, Dick Tracy, Terry the Pirates, Batman
    Robin, Jack Armstrong, Sky King, The Phantom, Don Winslow [of the Navy],
    Tarzan, Smilin' Jack, and, Blackhawk [who flew Grumman Skyrockets]. And
    probably many, many more. Not many of them around any more....

    About a tank and its crew fighting in Europe. I remember that at one time the Stuart was knocked out and they requsitioned another tank - a Sherman? - and continued on with the stories. I loved it!

    I remember a strip that had a group of squaddies in a LCT with a jeep, a Sherman and what must have been an endless supply of ammo.
    Like in the film The Final Countdown they time warped and ended up each week in a famous battle. As a kid it was brilliant seeing them whoop the arses of legions of Romans or giving Gengis Khan a drubbing. Funny tho different nationalities and languages but they all still yelled "AIEEEEEEE!" when the got shot or blown up, must be a universal yell or Esperanto

    I grew up reading the "Commando" comics. I used to scoure second hand bookshops looking for the older issues as well as collecting the new releases. I still have several hundred of them packed away.
