*Humour Comics: We reach the end of our bumper Buster top-up of regular weekly issues with a selection from 1977 through to 1988 – heavier on the former side of the period, the late 1970s, and kind of spotty and skimpy thereafter, with only token touches to the 1980s. During this period, Buster, as the longest-surviving IPC funny weekly, cannibalised a lot of its fallen brethren, including Jackpot, School Fun, the frankly rubbish Nippper, Oink! and, eventually, Whizzer and Chips. This brought a huge array of popular and long-running strips into the titles’ pages – among which ‘Big Daddy’ (yes, the former pro wrestler) was probably the most bizarre and inexplicable. Watch out for two special further Buster updates coming soon!
