*Humour Comics: Launched in 1973, Shiver & Shake continued the ‘two comics in one’ theme from Whizzer & Chips, as the hosts of the comic, Shiver (a ghost) and Shake (an elephant) each had their own section of the title. Spooky comedy was the main theme in both halves, however, with two star strips: Ken Reid’s “Frankie Stein”, formerly of Wham!, and Leo Baxendale’s “Sweeny Toddler”. Other well-remembered strips include “Gal Capone”, “Tough Nutt & Softy Centre”, “Moana Lisa”, “Scream Inn”, “Grimly Fiendish”, “Biddy’s Beastly Bloomers” (flowers, rather than underwear, we hasten to clarify), and, peculiarly, the real-life stand-up comic Charlie Williams. Obviously, somebody thought a black comedian with a broad Yorkshire accent qualified as ‘horrific’! Despite all this star power, Shiver & Shake wasn’t a huge hit, lasting only 83 issues before being absorbed into Whoopee!, but it’s hotly pursued now, and we have 44 new issues – more than half the run, including the final edition – new in this update.
