NIPPER SAMPLE COMIC...



At the beginning of 1987, the first issue of IPC's new
fortnightly A5 comic hit the shops - NIPPER.  After five
issues, it became a standard A4 comic, which lasted until
#16 when it then merged with BUSTER.  However, there
was a sample version which was tried out on readers be-
fore the regular title's release in order to try and stir
up demand for it.  Here's that complete ish!

Brad Break - what a trait for a character! "Boy with broken leg", as if Spotted Dick was bad enough...

My "Dad" Mum is a bit of a shame, could've been something surprisingly progressive, instead she's clueless without a man, ho hum.

Nice to see something by Davey Jones in there, always fun seeing Viz artists in non-adult comics.

Steve Bright did a great job duplicating Davey Law's style. My Dad Mum was quite daring for its time, I thought.

Thanks for sharing this one with us, Kid. I never bought a single Nipper, so this is a first time read for me.

I only got it 'cos I lettered most of it, JP.
