This is the second consecutive issue to make a feature of the comic title (see the title cosy on last week's cover).
There is no above-title caption on the cover this issue, and Cheeky appears to be at Krazy Town harbour in this week's What A Cheek (does Krazy Town have a harbour?).
Cheeky meets cover star Six-Gun Sam on Sunday, but mercifully our comical cowpoke keeps his shootin' irons holstered.
Supporter of good causes Do-Good Dora is on Cheeky's trail with her collecting tin all week. Cheeky determinedly dodges her each time.
I like the skewed art, thumbprints and Frank's notes about the 'nutty artist' on the Suddenly page.
On Saturday, prominence is given to Walter Wurx's 'looward lunge'.
Soppy Louise is the subject of this week's Pin-Up Pal poster on the back cover. She's depicted carving 'Louise luvs Cheeky' high on a tree trunk, while Cheeky hacks desperately at the base with an axe.
There are a pleasing 9 pure Frank McDiarmid Cheeky's week elements this week (plus Frank turns in the main cover illo and the poster). The remaining 4 Cheeky's Week elements are by Frank McDiarmid pencils.
