Sometimes when you're browsing through charity shops for comics you might come across an unusual comics related item. I did just that when I found the Mickey Mouse Colorforms Set (or 'Colourforms', as it would be called here) just over a year ago. Mickey Mouse, although more known as a movie star, is also a very successful comics character, which is why I thought it suitable to show this here.

Colourforms are great fun. As advertised on the box, not glue or paste is needed; they stick onto the background "like magic"! You can make just about any set-up you like, and if you had a camera you could probably make a short animation!
I have no idea when this set was made. Going by what this website has I'd assume it was produced in the 70's, but I can't be sure.
All in all though, it's great fun, I'm sure these sets were very popular with kids.
