Cover Collaborations


By early 1989 the 'rival comics' aspect of Whizzer and Chips was being de-emphasised, to the extent that all cross-comic raids had ceased, Sid and Shiner's letters pages were both located in Whizzer while their respective comic strips had been combined into single a feature within Chips, and readers were no longer encouraged to separate the two 'titles'. Also gone were the cover comic strips, replaced by a series of full-page depictions of the W&C stars in situations various. As the comic increasingly resorted to reprints, these covers showed resurrected IPC veterans such as Fuss-Pot sharing jolly japes with newcomers including Wonder Wimp.

In the 04 March 1989 edition, reader Rachel Thomas asked who was responsible for the cover art. The answer revealed that the covers were a collaborative effort (a surprise to  me) between Jimmy Hansen and Barrie Appleby.
