One of those comic titles responsible for swallowing up other comic titles before it too succumbs to falling circulation. The first few issues are harder to come by. Thereafter they do turn up. A whole run isn't the easiest thing to put together and comedy comics are on the rise in collectibility. Watch this space!

Note: 1st Whoopee & Shiver & Shake (12th Oct 1974), 1st Whoopee & Cheeky (9th Feb 1980), 1st Whoopee & Wow (2nd Jul 1983).

Aug 2011: a copy of issue #1 plus free gift in its original packet fetched £90 on eBay UK.

Interestingly there is a preview advert for a new comic called 2000AD in the 19th Feb 1977 issue...who would have thught back then that 2000AD would go on to be so successful! Thanks to Mike Coughlan for pointing this one out.
