Ah, memories! Here's the last ever Christmas WHAM! (#185) from 1967. Little did I know when I purchased this from my local newsagent 44 years ago that there would be only two more issues of this classic title before it was merged with its companion paper POW! LEO BAXENDALE's creation, The TIDDLERS (not sure if he drew this one though), adorned the Festively-themed cover, although they had evolved into more of an imitation of The BASH STREET KIDS (also by Leo) over the years since their first appearance in '64. Bax, of course, was also responsible for The SWOTS And The BLOTS over in SMASH!, so he was no stranger to strips about riotous schoolkids and their teacher.
