|You might notice Sqworm in the first panel, a nice |
additional touch to the strip.
During 1994 Buster stepped aside to allow the front cover to be taken up by various other characters, the first of which was Tom Thug, who appeared on the cover of issue dated 25th March 1994. Tom Thug normally took up one page, but this issue was a special two-page story as it took the place where Buster would normally appear, and was illustrated by Lew Stringer. I'm sure Tom was on the cover of Buster before at some stage but I couldn't find the issue I'm thinking of, so it might just be my imagination.
Buster still appeared inside though, in the slot where Tom would normally be found.
I'll be showing the rest of these front covers the next week or so, so stay tuned!
