Football in Comics (Part 4)!

This is the final part in the series, and this time we take a look at another Tiger annual, the 1980 one! (not the one pictured above, that's just a fantastic footy cover,courtesy of Clive Huckstepp!) First up is Nipper, about Nipper Lawrence who played for the Blackport Rovers.

Billy's Boots is, as it's title suggests, about a boy named Billy who has a special pair of boots (not only did they used to belong to a proffesional player, but they're special in their own little way as well)!

And finally, Hot-Shot Hamish, the man with the kick like a cannon!

Well, that sums it up for the posts on football, even though Euro 2012 isn't over yet! I hope you enjoyed these posts as much as I did, they gave me a chance to write about comics I wouldn't usually cover. I'll definatly be returning to sports in the future, maybe with the Olympic Games! 

However, if you want more football fun, head on over to Kazoop!, where a few footy comic strips are added EVERY DAY until the end of Euro 2012!
