'THE BEST OF' - IPC/FLEETWAY COMIC MONTHLIES...
A while back, I started to scan some of the covers of various IPC/
FLEETWAY comic monthlies, meaning to do a post on them. Never
finished any more than seven issues, so rather than have them languishing
in limbo, I thought I'd just show them here. Just look at those WHIZZER
& CHIPS ones - they came out in 1984 - a few months short of 30 years
ago, but I can remember buying them as clear as day as if it were only
recently. I just can't get my head around that.
As you can see, the July '85 ish of WHOOPEE has a number on it,
which reminds me that it was Group Editor BOB PAYNTER who gave
me it on one of my jaunts down to London. (2014 means that it was in-
tended for office 14 on the 20th floor.) I may also have got the August
issue from Bob, but I'd have to check, because sometimes the numbers
were written on the back. Which ones do you remember and did
you have any favourites?
I'll dig out some more in the not-too-distant future and treat
you all to yet another fun-fest of comic covers. Stay tuned!
