Buster

Buster actually started out in the 1960s but was a kids classic right through to the 90s featuring the title character Buster Capp who was allegedly Andy Capp's son.

Some of the most well-remembered comic strips from Buster include Dinah Mite, Cliff Hanger and Faceache. Buster comic gradually absorbed various other comics over the years including Whizzer and Chips, Funny and Cor!! amongst others.

    I am thinking of Buster Comics at the moment because I remember a series, probably published in 1963 - 1964 titled "The Dome" which was very sophisticated science fiction - and its them was remarkably similar - in general - to Stephen King's "Under the Dome" - novel published November 2009 - TV series soon to be screened here in Australia. Can anyone corroborate this?

    Buster was one of the comics I got every week and I would always read X Ray Specs first. I always wanted a pair of X ray specs so I could spy on my next door neighbour

    My mum used to bring home stacks of comics once a week, for me and my brother to read, including Whizzer & Chips, Buster, Beano, Dandy, Victor (I won a t-shirt for writing in to this one!), Bunty, and Beezer! I was a bit of a 'tom-boy' then, but I had a liking for Bunty! Later on, as my tastes changed, I became a fan of Blue Jeans and Just 17, anyone remember those?

    Very much the IPC fun comics' brand leader, the oldest and the one that all the rest eventually merged with. In the very last Buster strip ( Jan '00 ), all the characters revealed opposite sides to them than we'd seen through the years - Lazy Bones was an insomniac, Seet Tooth got toothache, Tony Broke won the Lotto while Ivor Lott went bust investing his shares in Buster comic. Buster himself eventually took off his cap and told us why he always had it on - he had the same hairstyle as Dennis the Menace( the only recognition by either publishing house of its rival ). Had a crush on Disappearing Trix meself by the way...

    I'm a screenwriter currently working on a 4-part series based on the life of Charlie Peace. Like most people of my age I suppose I first came across Charlie in the pages of Buster. Has anyone got any information about this strip and/or the artists who drew it? Cheers, Michael Eaton

    I bought Buster in the early 80's.....loved it when Jackpot comic joined my favourite period...Reg Parlett's Buster is the best in my eyes...though now I enjoy Tom Paterson version of Buster and the late 80's...loved J.Edward Oliver's work on Cliff Hanger and Mastermind he wrote these as well as drawn them see my website to him and other comic artists I've done..... http://uk.geocities.com/pjgcomics Also loved Laser Eraser...Mike's Bike...X Ray Specs...:)

    I collected Buster comic during its later years. During that time I got to know the characters very well. I stopped collecting after a while but have recently gotten back into it. I have even started my own website (www.bustercomic.4t.com) dedicated to the son of Andy Capp, & as an attempt to revive the comic in an online format.
