A BOXING DAY 'BEEZER' OF A CHRISTMAS CLASSIC...

 
 
Remember when comics were cheap, cheerful, and Christmassy at the
appropriate time of the year? Then you're sure to love this Yuletide edition
of THE BEEZER from 1986. Let's not bother with any waffle from me -
fling yourselves headlong into these lovely cartoon capers, lads and lasses
(or 'lassies' if you're Scottish). Most of your old favourites are here. And
be sure to record your reminiscinces in the comments section.

Who drew Numbskulls?

Kid said...

I think it was Malcom Judge between 1984 and '89. He'd drawn them before, apparently.

Just imagining Santa dropping miniscule football boots down that man's earhole...

Comic logic, love it!

Kid said...

And was it yer actual Santa or a 'Numskull Santa' who did it? We deserve to be told.

The Beezer was my favourite DC Thomson paper , do you remember The Jellymen in the centre spread?

Kid said...

Can't say I do. Did they have a boat perhaps?

John Pitt said...

The Jellymen was an EXCITING sci-fi story of aliens from the sea ( kind of half jellyfish/ half jellybaby) with suckers for hands (pre- Daleks!) from which they could cover you with an indestructible transparent dome. If you ever come across them in 60' s Beezers, you should check them out! John .

I'd love to see any clips of the hillies & the billies from 60's beezers if you have any?

Kid said...

No doubt I'll have some somewhere. I'll see what I can do, but it'll be a while.
