As if to prove that this is a full reprint comic, here's a Faceache strip by the ledgendary Ken Reid, who had died just over ten years earlier than this publication was released!
Despite this been a Holiday Special, very few strips had anything to do with the summer holiday's. However, this Blub the Sub strip showed that our pathetic pal really didn't get along with animals, especially this donkey at the seaside! Illustrated by Meryvn Johnson.
Of course, the main character would have to have a seasonal strip, and that's exactly what Buster gets on this two page centre spread!
The final summer strip appears on the back cover in full colour, probably to make readers think theres lots of stories inside based at the beach. Well, that is what summer is all about isn't it?! The character in question is Chalky, by his final artist Gordon Hill.
