Cheeky Special 2019!

...Well, not quite, but it seems that Lew Stringer has included our toothy pal in his intro that will appear in the forthcoming Cor!! and Buster Special. Nice touch. Clearly, Cheeky never appeared in either of the vintage comics in question but Lew is of course aware of this so the intro probably features a selection of IPC characters from across their titles. But maybe the contents aren't restricted to strips that appeared in Cor!! and Buster. The cover, by Neil Googe, includes Hit Kid who certainly never appeared in Cor!! and I would imagine if he appeared in Buster it was in the form of reprints from Krazy.

  1. Thanks for plugging the special! To give him credit, I was working from John Freeman's script and he asked for Cheeky to be in there. Yep, the Cor!! and Buster Special has just used those two popular titles for its name, but characters from across various old IPC / Fleetway (and even a couple of Amalgamated Press comics) will be in it, either as cameos or part of the story.

    1. Cheers, Lew. Looking forward to the special.

  2. The contents have shifted around a bit before publication so my three page strip is still in there but not at the front of the comic now. I've also written a three page feature that tells the readers who some of the classic characters are. I think people will enjoy the special. It's a nice balance of modern revamps of the characters plus a more traditional approach by Tom Paterson and myself so something for everyone I hope!
