Cheeky Upfront Again

Art: Mark Wayne Barrett


Not long after appearing on the cover of Comic Scene issue 2, our toothy pal can be seen on the front page of another publication. This time Cheeky is gracing FANSCENE’s '50th anniversary of UK Comic Cons' issue (free to download - although a donation to the charity of your choice is encouraged - here). As is explained inside the ‘zine, the collection of characters depicted above have all performed the role of ‘editor’ of either a comic or letters page. Cheeky was of course the editor of the Chit-Chat letters page.

Unfortunately, other than a mention on the page that identifies all the comic greats gathered on the cover, Cheeky is not featured inside this issue – not really surprising as the focus is on recollections of various Comic Cons through the years. Sadly, CheekyCon has yet to be organised (although it can only be a matter of time - just think of the cosplay possibilities).

  2. I think it’s bad manners Cheeky should’ve been excluded; he fronted his own comic after all, and all the other Krazy Gang members are in evidence excluding himself, and Blue.

  3. Oh, he and Blue ARE on the cover; must get me eyes checked. There are far too few for my personal tastes; where are Doomlord and Blake Edmonds (Death Wish)? Of course I realise they only showcased those that fronted or were prominent in certain comics - but how's Smiler qualify other than being on the cover for a while in 1981/1982? The Bumpkins, Lolly Pop and Sweeney all did that. Surprised Sweeney wasn't there, what with his own volume coming out from Rebellion soon, to say nothing of booting Sid and Slippy off W&C's cover in 1985!

    1. They're all 'editors', so Smiler is there because he was the 'editor' of the Smiler's Smile-In feature in Whoopee!
