I remember reading a sci fi comic with a story where there was a goo or ooze that absorbed everything. I think the goo (or whatever it was) was black.

I remember reading it in the late 70's or early 80's (I was in the UK). There were a number of these comics published with different stories in each. I can't remember if you got more than one story in each issue. I think the comics were maybe about A5 size rather than magazine size.

One of the covers had a space web trapping a ship (a bit like the star trek episode). I've been searching the web trying to find the name of the publication. I do remember they were very popular amongst me and my friends at the time. Can anyone help please?


I believe that the comics you're looking for are the Starblazer series. The one with the web is here:

There were almost 300 issues, and I'm afraid I've no idea which one had the black goo.

There's a site with most of the covers; if you have a look there, you might find something that rings a bell.

  • Thanks! After seeing the covers I'm sure I read a couple of them around about 1979/1980

  • I had dozens of these back in the day - I wish I knew where they'd ended up!
