In my local library, they keep copies of The Beano and Dandy in the kids' section, which seems like a great idea to me. I was surprised today to see a copy of Whizzer and Chips. A brand new copy of Whizzer and Chips. Surely that was cancelled years ago, I thought to myself. It must be a facsimilie.

Indeed it was. Looking into it online, it seems The Guardian gave away comic freebies every day for a whole week very recently, and I missed it. Bummer.

Anyway as an image to go with this story, here is the cover from my copy of Whizzer and Chips from 1979. Yes, I still have it. It's a bit the worse for wear:
