WHIZZER & CHIPS #7 - PART ONE...
Okay, Criv-ites, here's a little treat for you. The first of a four
part presentation of the complete issue of WHIZZER & CHIPS #7
from 1969. This was when the comic featured not just outright humour
strips, but 'action/adventure' ones also. (Although it has to be admitted
that the ones in this issue have a vein of light comedy running through
them. That would change when WONDER CAR joined the ranks,
illustrated by TV21 DALEKS artist RON TURNER.)
So, are you old enough to have bought this comic regularly
when you were a kid, and if so, what did you think of it? How do
the comics that your kids or grandkids buy today measure up to it in
your opinion? One thing that impresses me is the fact that it's easy to
see what's happening at a glance, without getting a headache trying
to dechiper just what you're looking at. Not a facility that some
cartoonists today have yet mastered, in my humble opinion.
Anyway, enjoy the pages on view, and don't forget to
come back for the next three parts in this super series.
