Phill from GCHQ - page 40 - Boudica

in comics •  12 days ago

I am picking up speed - here is the next page of Phill from GCHQ. It seems that Judith know Eileen under another name... Boudica was a Celtic Queen that fought the Roman conquerors... and lost. As for the Spectrum, or Speccy as it is also called, you will have to consult the internet or wait for an explanation next week. Have a good Sunday!


Boudica - Page 40 of the cartoon about Phill from GCHQ - a free comic that I have been working on since September 2016.

Thanks to @vcelier there is a French translation, and thanks to @shortcut there is a German translation - new pages are published on their respective Steemit pages.

great , strange and powerful stlye you have , atracted me 😻👍🏿 @katharsis

If you can find an original working Spectrum they are worth some money now :) I was a BBC Micro kid. Wish I still had it

I tried to look up what a BBC Micro kid is, but I am not sure I found the right thing.

We, like most other continentals... (or Scandinavians at least), was commodore vic-20 and c64 kids. But I remember following the Spectrum through the computer magazines that covered it just as much as Armstrad, Commodore and all the other classic machines.

I am sure they are worth some money now, but it is also possible to buy a new one. While trying to find an image for the next page I fell over The Recreated Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

There were so many different and incompatible computers back then. The Beeb had a proper keyboard, but it was expensive https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBC_Micro

Ahh, stupid me. I searched with the kid in the search frase even though I understood your meaning. I got this: BBC micro-bit

I actually think that I read about the BBC micro somewhere, but the British computers I were aware of back then was the Armstrad, the Memotech and the Sinclair Spectrum because I read about them in the magazines.

I can still (if I really concentrate) feel the violent attraction we had against this new technology. Looking at how primitive it was it is not entirely understandable today :)

I had a lot of fun with mine, learning to program and playing games

Yes, same here (with the c64). Basic on the home-computer and comal-80 programming in school. I remember making music and graphics for computer-games that I planned, but I had to write it all down with pencil and paper because the damn thing couldn't save :)

I only had cassette storage. A floppy drive was out of my budget. I used to play Elite and it was amazing at the time.

Eventually we had the cassette storage too. I remember sitting while it was loading a game being all quiet because we had a feeling that if we disturbed it it would crash and we had to do it all over again.

I really love your style in this.

Thank you so much :)
