Football Comics – Twisty


From Blimey! British Comics of the Past, Present & Future! (

Football strip Twisty was a little more street-cred though, featuring a teenage footballer “left with a slightly deformed leg after a car crash” who’s often knocked about by his thieving Uncle. Vic’s Vengeance was probably the closest to the promised “rough tough” mandate, about a teenager vowing revenge on the London gangsters who caused his Dad’s death.
