For our first darts strip we head back to 13th February 1988 to take a look a True Brit, the cover star for The Beezer who was illustrated by the great Robert Nixon.
We head back even further now to 1969 where Biffo the Bear attempts the game on the cover of The Beano, with little success. Art by Dudey Watkins.
In Buster dated 11th October 1986 Anthony Hutchings drew a School Team strip where the team participated in a darts competition in Borneo!
Although not directly about darts, this Sparky strip from the Sparky book 1968 does show the comics' staff having a game.
School Belle gave the sport a go at the school club.
The strip that inspired me to write this post was this Winners strip from 1983. I originally read this story a long time ago, and after flicking through a good number of comics I finally found it - in the last comic I was going to look in!
And finally, I also found this competition to meet the great Eric Bristow, and win up to £360!
