Cheeky Weekly cover date 19 Nov 1977

Space Family Robinson get top billing on this week's cover, with Ben Robinson being grabbed by the Moloks. Like last week's Gran cover, the scene is a blown up panel from the story inside. Presumably it's cheaper than getting the artist to provide separate cover art. The Bubblegum Boy also sneaks in another front page appearance.

The What a Cheek strip is unadulterated Frank, as is the Sunday page (which is signed by Frank) and all the Cheeky pages up to and including Wednesday, with the exception of Sunday evening (are you following all this? If not, see the page breakdown below), but the remainder of Cheeky's Week is in Frank's pencils only. Having said that, I'm not sure about the artist on the continuation of the Saturday feature on page 30, which consists of 2 panels and reminds readers to call the fun phone with their jokes.

The same page heralds a competition in the next issue with prizes of Friend of Cheeky T Shirts.


Lopez takes over the art on the James Bold adventure this week (thanks to Robbie Moubert for the artist id).

There are two debuts this issue - a strangely dandruff-freeTeacher (maybe Frank didn't give his inker instructions on dandruff placement), and Auntie Daisy the school meals lady.  You can see Daisy's debut on the Wednesday page here.

  1. '...with Ben Robinson being grabbed by the Moloks'

    Thank you for that

    And thank you for the blog, I'm loving it, my collection of Cheeky Weeklies are now sadly lost to time, more's the pity.

    I did, very happily, find a couple of copies of Krazy recently (while clearing out my parent's garage).

  2. Glad you're enjoying the blog, fog. There's plenty more nostalgia to come.
