As a kid I used to be a great fan of comic books. My favourite ones were:

Kapitan Żbik (about a brave Polish policeman during People's Republic of Poland time :) )



Kajko i Kokosz (something like Asterix and Obelix, but with Slavic theme)



Tytus, Romek i A'tomek (about two boy scouts who tried to civilize a monkey - hilarious :) )

Quote
In the People's Republic of Poland the term comic (komiks) was discouraged as a 'demoralising Western influence' and the terms 'graphic stories' (historyjki obrazkowe) or 'color books' (kolorowe zeszyty) were preferred instead; they were actually illegal and forbidden from 1947 to 1957. In modern Poland those terms have largely been forgotten, and the formerly discouraged English loanword is now the main term for the medium.

What were/are your favourite comic books?

I was quite fond of Kajko i Kokosz comics myself. Much better than
Asterix and Obelix, in my opinion.

I also liked Captain Kloss - it's about a Polish spy in Abwehr during WW2 :)

Does anyone remember Tytus, Romek i Atomek? I used to be my favorite part of Swiat mlodych.
