From February 1983: More gold-badge start-of-year gifting, this time from BUSTER.

Once again, IPC's freebies team went back to their go-to people for gold giveaways (see also: EAGLE issue 2 and 2000AD 300) to create this uncanny likeness of the onetime 'son of Andy Capp'.

Clearly the booklet people were already rushed off their feet with other punter-retaining projects but - not to be left out - the Buster gang concocted a game which, it seems, you ad to wait three weeks before you could start playing.  I hope it was worth the wait!

  1. I had one of these...but it's long lost! Bought some issues of Buster in a charity shop a while back from 1981-1983, and two things became apparent! One, that I was reading comics at 4 years old (1981), and 2, that I seem to have a really good memory for old comic strips that I've read! :)
