Here are the five UK comic classics most in need of a comprehensive reprint:

1. Bash Street Kids (Leo Baxendale, 1954 - 1962)
2. Jeff Hawke (Sydney Jordan)
3. Garth (Frank Bellamy)
4. Romeo Brown (Jim Holdaway)
5. Tiffany Jones (Pat Tourret, Jenny Butterworth)

Garth and Jeff Hawke have had a few collections out, the others nada. It is astounding that DC Thomson has not put out a Baxendale BSK a long time ago. It is a national treasure. I met Baxendale a UKCAC the year he had a graphic album out on Knockabout. Got his autograph.

I was into this much more than 'Mad.'
