Quote from: Slim on November 16, 2010, 12:14:15 pmI used to read war comics as a kid - especially the smaller format magazine type like Commando but also bigger, weekly comics. Can't remember the titles now but they could be pretty grim considering they were aimed at kids - I remember one First World War story in which a young private is summarily executed by his commanding officer for falling asleep on guard one time too many at the front, and a story in which soldiers trapped in a cave draw straws to decide the next to leave the cave and be shot by the Germans waiting outside, while they think of a plan to overcome them. Dark stuff.

Quote from: Fishy on August 17, 2012, 12:36:19 pmyeah i got Shoot... remember the league cards with great fondness..from wikipedia...The weekly magazine was also known for its annual free gift of "Shoot League Ladders". This consisted of a thin card sheet on which were printed blank league tables for each division of The Football League, with a slit in the card alongside each position on the tables. Also given away were T-shaped "tabs" for each club in the league (printed in the appropriate team colours) which could be fitted into the slits to indicate where each team currently stood in the league table. As the season progressed and teams moved up and down the table, their tabs could be moved to new slits accordingly. Old league ladders are still regularly sold on eBay
