Whizzer and Chips

Whizzer and Chips

Two comics in one - great value for money! I don't remember all the characters but I do remember Shiner (a kid who was always getting a black eye) and Sid and Slippy the boy and snake that were the leaders of the Whizz-Kids.

And who can forget Champ, the boy wanted to be best at everything or Superdad the mickey take on superman that featured the most unlikely looking superhero ever.

    I learned to read by reading these IPC 1970s comics; Whizzer and Chips was one of the best and highly sought after in the comic box at school on a rainy playtime! I'll be a Whizz-Kid all my life, even though they printed my joke erroneously in the Chips section in 1979. I won a pound - a whole quid! - and a Whizz-Kid t-shirt that I wore so much it fell apart a year or so later. David Clark reckoned you could buy the t-shirts in the shops but he was wrong, so wrong.

    Cousins of ours who had a newsagent's standing order for WnC used to bring the years' supply during the summer hols - I'll always associate WnC with summer. I was a WhizzKid meself because my older brothers & cousins were ChipItes but I'd love to know what influenced peope's decisions.Over to you...

    I remember going to the papershop every Saturday with my younger brother and Dad and it was just before Bonfire Night when Whizzer and Chips first came out. I can always remember the very first issue because it has been reprinted in miniature form since in an anniversary issue of Whizzer and Chips but I wished I had kept those very first issues. I would love to see the copy that was dedicated to Bonfire Night in 1971 because in those days the stories featured fireworks as a special issue and Cor!! was another comic that did the same. We always see copies of the first issue cover but I would like to see numbers 2 to 10 and the very first Christmas issue. Odd Ball was always my favourite character and luckily he stayed till the end in Buster right to the last issue.
