Introducing Percival Proudfoot Plugsley - known as Plug, world champion sporting Supergoon.

"Get PLUG and be one jump ahead.
It's FUN, It's POPI, It's SPORTI, It's TRENDI
It's today's comic."

Plug was an odd sort of comic, very off the wall for it's time and the artwork did look rather like a school project.

Insect football teams, rock bands from Mars,"Gnoodini" the escapologist Gnu and rare Custard Guzzling snakes were all to be found in Plug.

Plug was definitely a strange comic. Using the character from the Bash Street Kids, but here he was depicted as a sporty type. What were they playing at? I must confess that the sporty theme put me right off after issue one! The same must have applied to the rest of the readers as it didn't last long. - Lew Stringer

Hi , very nice site, just thought I'd send in some memories of Plug.

My brother started buying it from its first issue and some of the characters that I remember are as follows:

  • Tony Jackpot - a schoolboy golfer
  • Doctor Rotcod - a surreal doctor with lots of backwards text
  • Antchester United - a insect based football team!
  • Violent Elizabeth - spoof of Just Williams Nemesis

cant remember much more, but it has been a long time! Cheers - Duncan

I have a first edition Plug comic straight out of the libraries of DC Thomson's as my Dad was the comic script writer, Smokie Gray. He wrote cartoon scripts for DC's all his adult life. He often claimed to be the most successful children's comic writer ever as the Dandy and Beano were the best selling children's comics! He also invented Gnasher which I suppose kinda validates his claim!

I also have original artwork by Mervyn Johnston, (Black Bob, Dennis and Gnasher and Minnie the Minx). Also, I have mock-up's of ideas by other artists at DC's. Give me a shout if you would like to see any of it.
