WHAM! No.2 - online!


If you've checked out the Comics UK website this week you'll know that in their Daily Page section they're currently running scans from issue No.2 of Wham! from 1964. This rare issue features artwork by Leo Baxendale, John Burns and others and is a fine example of how sixties comics packed their pages with a variety of humour and adventure strips.


Today's page is the first of a two page Eagle Eye Junior Spy strip. (Leo Baxendale drew these early episodes, but not the ones in later issues.) Clicking on "previous" to view earlier pages doesn't work at present, but if you change the page number in your address window you'll find the page you want.

They seem to have skipped page 5, the pop star page, calling page 6 page 5 and so on -- copyright problems with the photo perhaps? Do love your blog!

Hmm. I see what you mean. Two pages have been missed so far. Perhaps they're only scanning the comics pages and missing out the features. Pity.

Yes, that's probably it. Seems to have disappeared today though.
