Nick Baker's Cheeky Christmas

Great to see the latest of Lew Stringer's traditional seasonal comic covers posts.  In that post, Lew includes a link to a post of his from Christmas 2008. Scrolling to the bottom of that page will reveal Nick Baker's Whoopee! Christmas cover from 1981.  I'm a big fan of Nick Baker's work, and this is great.  Nick makes no attempt to ghost the styles of the regular artists of the Whoopee! crew, in fact he draws all the characters with toothy beams just like Smiler, the character he drew each week.

As we all know, Cheeky Weekly merged into Whoopee! in February 1980.   The final issue of Whoopee! to include a reference on the front cover to the Cheeky title  was that dated 25 July 1981.  However, the ex-Cheeky Weekly characters continued to appear in Whoopee! beyond that date, so among the fun-pals drawn by Nick on Whoopee's Christmas '81 cover is his rather unusual take on Cheeky.

For some Smiler strips, see here.

  1. Blimey, impressively anal blog - I thought I was bad. My wife has very fond memories of this comic - I only read a few but what I did like about it was the unique way it took you through one character's week - very soap opera in its way. Will certainly pop back now and again and check out your progress! Best wishes
