Action… March 26, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
Mentioned 2000AD a few weekends ago. But let’s not forget Action. There was a site dedicated to that comic – the sevenpennynightmare, but it appears to have melted into air. Still, for those who missed it at the time there’s still a fair few places with pages from Action around. Not least here.
I’ve got to admit I love it’s punky belligerence (and the frame for ‘Sports Not for Losers’ is in and of itself a minor classic).
Funnily enough there’s a slightly indirect crossover with a comic strip I loved, Oliver Frey’s SOS International which appeared in the Action annual 1984 – a good ten or so years after it appeared originally in Speed&Power. I’ll put up a post soon about Frey and all his works – he also produced a year or two of the Trigan Empire in Look and Learn.
