HAPPY EASTER MONDAY, BUSTER...
Fifteen years ago, the Easter copy of BUSTER went on sale,
surprisingly with no mention of the celebration on the cover. Sadly, there
would be only two more similarly-themed issues to go before the comic's
demise at the end of 1999 (dated into 2000). For the last few years of its
life the fortnightly periodical was mainly reprint, 'though Buster's strip
itself was new material, drawn by JIMMY HANSEN.
The ODD-BALL strip below is doubtless a reprint, and is drawn by
comics legend TERRY BAVE. Odd-Ball first appeared in WHIZZER
& CHIPS back in 1969, eventually ending up in Buster when the two
comics merged in October 1990.
Have a Happy Easter Monday. Scoffed all your chocolate eggs yet?
