Comic Scene gets Cheeky

I've now got a copy of Comic Scene issue 2 - I opted for the digital version. Publication was delayed a little (originally intended for 01 September), but the folks at the mag kept me, and no doubt others who had placed an order, informed of the situation which apparently resulted because the print run was increased, which is obviously good news.

It was apparent from the pre-publication publicity shot of the mag's cover that it was to contain an article about Cheeky Weekly. In my opinion there can never be enough mentions of the toothy funster's comic - it's rarely covered in nostalgic looks back at the comics of yesteryear, and I was keen to see what the piece contained.

Written by Pete Doree of The Bronze Age of Blogs, the article contains his affectionate memories of the comic and a concise overview of Cheeky Weekly's unique properties. Pete does a good job of distilling the essence of our favourite title into the limited space available - 2 pages, one of which carries a Cheeky's Week page from the first issue. I'm hesitant to mention the couple of errors I spotted, but I'm going to anyway - Lily Pop is referred to as Lili, and Leo Baxendale is credited with providing art for the Creepy Sleepy Tales.

I haven't looked at any of the other articles yet but I'm sure this special humour issue will, at 64 pages, keep me amused for a while.

  1. I'm looking forward to getting my copy. (I had an eMail informing me my copy was sent tiday. I should get my copy by the end of the month.)
