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.
