In this entertaining cultural history of British comic papers and magazines, James Chapman shows how comics were transformed in the early twentieth century from adult amusement to imaginative reading matter for children. Beginning with the first British comic, Ally Sloper—known as “A Selection, Side-splitting, Sentimental, and Serious, for the Benefit of Old Boys, Young Boys, Odd Boys generally, and even Girls”—British Comics goes on to describe the heyday of comics in the 1950s and ’60s, when titles such as School Friend and Eagle sold a million copies a week. Chapman also analyzes the major genres, including schoolgirl fantasies and sports and war stories for boys; the development of a new breed of violent comics in the 1970s, including the controversial Action and 2000AD; and the attempt by American publisher, Marvel, to launch a new hero for the British market in the form of Captain Britain. Considering the work of important contemporary comic writers such as Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Ian Edginton, Warren Ellis, and Garth Ennis, Chapman’s history comes right up to the present and takes in adult-oriented comics such as Warrior, Crisis, Deadline,and Revolver, and alternative comics such as Viz. Through a look at the changing structure of the comic publishing industry and how comic publishers, writers, and artists have responded to the tastes of their consumers, Chapman ultimately argues that British comics are distinctive and different from American, French, and Japanese comics. An invaluable reference for all comic collectors and fans in Britain and beyond, British Comics showcases the major role comics have played in the imaginative lives of readers young and old.

When Thandi Dladla undertakes to coach a young soccer team in a rural school in South Africa she little realizes how it will change her life. When levelling the terrain to make a field she discovers two skeletons which reveal how ninety percent of people became right-handed. This leads Thandi on a journey of discovery which helps her not only to coach her team to success but also to find the murderer of her father, a university professor who fought the Apartheid regime. Because of an obstructive police investigation her brother decides to take the law into his own hands and revenge the killing of his father. As she unveils the clues to the identity of the murderers she learns about the involvement of the State Security Council, a sinister Apartheid body accountable to none that planned and executed the deaths of countless black activists. She also discovers the origins of handedness, the role of the left and right brain in human conduct and the genesis of evil in the world. Her coaching methods in soccer, including encouraging every player to become equal footed, challenge many existing practices and she discovers how to teach her team and students to surpass their previous achievements. Her struggle with the Catholic headmaster explores the influence of religion in society and its juxtaposition with science and witchcraft. In a thrilling series of twists the denouement reveals the dark underbelly of South African society.

This is the straight-talking, fascinating story of Viz magazine, founded in 1979 by Chris Donald -- editor until 1999. Chris tells the remarkable story of the magazine, from tatty rag produced in his Newcastle bedroom to becoming one of the bestselling magazines in the UK.Chris was the creator of many of the characters and was responsible for all the magazine's written content. Characters from the magazine, such as Sid the Sexist and the Fat Slags, are now household names, and there will be a Fat Slags movie shortly, in late Summer 2004.This is an engaging tale told in Chris's unique, wry way. Chris takes us from his train-spotting childhood in the '70s through to setting up the magzine with family and friends, and struggling to sell even a few copies of Viz in the local pub. The comic's success swiftly grew, however, and remarkable events ensued such as how, once the magazine flourished, Chris was invited to tea by Prince Charles, taken in for questioning by New Scotland Yard's Anti-Terrorist Branch and caught his wife up to no good with Keith Richards in Peter Cook's attic.
