I still have all the Krazy comics ever made. Frank McDiarmid was an inspiration. Far too clever for kids. I was however 10 at the time but have appreciated them more since. - Philip Butterfield

i was a big fan of krazy comic back in the 70's my big bully of a brother.... the cad ,sent in a picture of me in my toffee nose school uniform to be custard pied, which krazy comic did,yikes! .alas a school friend who i had lent them to's neurotic mother burnt several issues all those years ago because i had the flu and she didn't want her pressious little bunnykins to catch it off me,bahhh!

my photo flanned picture was sent in by chris reding harpenden herts, would it be possible for you to scan me an image of the page and possible point me in the right direction where i might obtain a copy of the asaid above issue. Jonny Reding

You'll be pleased to hear that Jonny has now been re-united with his Krazy.

Krazy was a worthy attempt at doing something a bit more off the wall than yet another Whizzer & Chips imitation. The "zany" style of comic humour had proven popular for DC Thomson's SPARKY in 1969/early seventies, but it may have been too late for Krazy to attract the same following. I suspect it was a "love or hate" comic. I just regret I didn't buy any after No.1 as, being 18 at the time, I thought I was too old for children's comics. A period I soon "grew out" of thankfully , as by 24 I was writing and drawing them! A pity Krazy and most of the others had folded by then. I'd have loved to have worked on it! - Lew Stringer

Before Krazy most of the humourous comics would have the token adventure strip, and the adventure comics would have the token comedy strip. But Krazy broke new ground by being all humour. (And a few months later IPC launched 2000 AD which was all adventure strips.) As well as strips they did some Mad Magazine style articles. The last issue of Krazy was published on 15th April 1978, and then it merged with Whizzer and Chips. - Clive Huggett

Krazy comics brings so many good memories.
1. It was my first comic I collected regularly. I loved the free gifts. The 2nd Issue had a cardboard & Tissue "Hummer".
2. It got me interested in drawing cartoons.
3. The brilliant back cover disguises.
4. The collection of excellent artists that still hold up today. Sadly my little brother destroyed my collection and so it was my quest to find my Krazy comics again. Being in Australia it was harder to find any old copies anywhere. I dreamed of finding a second-hand bookshop that would have the issues. Finally after about 15yrs I finally found most of the issues in very good condition (Issue 1 onwards) at a small second hand bookshop in Hobart Tasmania. I was in tears my Holy Grail was found. I even found some near mint Cheeky comics that still had the free gifts from the first Issues and the best thing was that I got them for cover prices (30 cents-50 cents) Yippee. I'm still missing some issues but I have most of the annuals too, Thanks for reading - Jason Kelly - Melbourne, Australia

I to have fond memories of "Krazy Comic". I had a letter published (Cannot remember which issue) and I think I got a 1 postal order for my troubles...Ha ha!!!. I had sent in a joke which I cannot seem to remember, it was along the lines of; "what do you call someone who delivers letters in Africa?"...A Blackmail....Boom boom!!!...(Not very PC, but then I was young and it was the 70's....LOL!!!). I would love to be reunited with a copy (or even a photocopy) of the original comic/letters page if possible and I of course I'm more than willing to pay!...(Nostalgia has no price limit...LOL!!!). - Lee McDaid

I loved Krazy comic and have all of them still from my childhood - bar the last ever one. I must have lost it! I still look at them every now and again and they still make me chuckle. I love the off-beat humour. Like Johnny I would love to know how I could get the last ever Krazy and make my collection complete. - David Holman
