'CRACKER' comic

Here is a comic that is one that you don't often here about, I don't think I had heard of it untill I got these pictures, so I can't really tell you much about it and its contents. I would guess that it contained a varied range of comicstrip characters, but the cover and strip here is of course what the Cobwebbed room is interested in. I really love the artwork from the Little 'Orror strip and it also reminds me of Horror Bags Vampire, maybe the strip was inspired by this image of the vampire. 'Cracker' comic only lasted for about a year. The cover above is from the 21st Febuary 1976 issue.

Thanks to Rich

I was never a DC Thompson comics fan as a kid but a friend used to get 'The Beezer' (which contained a pull-out section of 'Cracker' after their merger)and this was always the first strip that I'd go for!

Great to see the character receiving the full-cover treatment.
