I always find adverts in old comics intresting, as they ususally advertise something I've never heard of before. This one was an advert for some Cinderella cards which came free with Micky Mouse comic, which cost 9p, 2p more than Krazy.
The next advert was actually an interative puzzle, with a prize worth £300! Can you spot all the mistakes? Sadly it's a bit late to enter, but you can still give it a shot!
But now for the really important stuff - the strips! Of course all the strips are good, but my favourite in this issue is this one off Father's Day strip. Drawn by Nigel Edwards.
However, one of my favourite regular Krazy strips was Birdman and Chicken by Trevor Metcalfe. They remind me of the classic fat and thin idea that was regulary used in early comics, particulary strips starring tramps (Weary Willie and Tired Tim are a perfect example, and can be found on the cover of almost any Chips comic).
The Krazy Gang were of course the stars of the comic, and this story drawn by Ian Knox is about the gang getting back on Pongo Snodgrass, the town's smelliest kid, after he took their dad's presents!
However the most popular member of the gang was Cheeky, who had already got his own three page strip inside the front cover, and was soon to get his very own comic (you can read a blog dedicated to Cheeky comic here - http://cheekyweekly.blogspot.com).
UPDATE: As requested by Peter Gray, here's the final page of Cheeky, showing as the barmy going on's inside the Krazy office!
UPDATE No. 2:
I can't believe I forgot to leave the back cover disguise out! This issue it was a holiday brochure, perfect if it's coming up to a holiday and you need to somewhere to hide it quick!
And that sums up this post, tune in next week for another 'This Week In' blog!
