WHIZZER & CHIPS ANNUAL COVER GALLERY - PART ONE...
WHIZZER & CHIPS came out in October 1969 and lasted
one week past its 21st (uncelebrated) birthday issue in 1990. The
first Annual came out towards the end of 1970 (for '71), and the last
one came out in 1993 (for '94) - making a total of 24 Annuals in all.
However, there was a 25th Annual in 2014 (for '15), with material
reprinted from earlier books in the run. (What a comeback, eh?
A whole 21 years after the previous Annual.)
Here then, is the first instalment in a four part series of Whizzer
& Chips Annual covers, which, hopefully, you'll all enjoy. Have
you any happy memories of receiving one of these bumper books
for Christmas when you were a lad? Then the comments section
awaits your joyous reminiscences.
It's just hit me on re-reading this post that the weekly Whizzer
& Chips will have been absent from our newsagents' counters for
25 years come October. That of course means that it's been gone
four years longer than it lasted. Gone for a quarter of a century!
Where did the time go? I'm numb at the thought.
