The Class system exposed!

Gadzooks! It seems it's a time for celebration! Not only has Cerebus 660's redoubtable Glass Walking Stick just crashed through the 150,000 page-views mark but this very day should send Steve Does Comics' own all-time page-view total smashing through the 200,000 barrier, poised as it currently is on 199,616.

Of course, with my winning modesty, I thought such a thing would go unnoticed.

But what's this?

I wake this morning to see bunting strewn across the pathways of this fair land, street parties underway and a bank holiday in full progress?

Bonfires are being lit on every hilltop in the land?

And only yesterday, a thousand boats floated up the Thames in celebration?

Needless to say, this touching tribute by an entire nation has moved me deeply and I shall be celebrating this afternoon by sailing up the River Sheaf, on my barge, before ending the day in the pouring rain, stood on the kerbside of my nearest main road and watching traffic go past for seven hours. Hopefully the BBC will do the right thing and ignore the protests of those who want me abolished.

Anyway, inspired by Pete Doree's recent comment on the Bronze Age Babies blog, here are the covers of some of the Alan Class comics I once possessed. I would have posted all the covers of all the Alan Class comics I once had but, as we all know, finding Alan Class covers on-line is like to trying to grab hold of the Human Top.

My most humble and toadying thanks for the kind mention, Your Majesty! It's reassuring to know that, as you serenely tread the streets of Sheffield in your ermine robes and your diamond-encrusted shell-suit, you spare a thought to your loyal subjects...

And, last night, they had a concert for me - with Cliff Richard! It's incredible!

Would like to get some Alan Class comics ( had the Astounding Stories one among many others ) but they go for LUDICROUS prices at cons & ebay. They are just reprints after all...
