On this day, 15 April 1978: Cheeky
Part of what made Cheeky so brilliantly unique among British comics was the large cast of regular supporting characters with whom Cheeky traded gags and laughs on his weekly walks around town. All were created by Frank McDiarmid, who was more closely identified with the look of this one comic than any other artist on any of IPC's other titles. McDiarmid also drew a full-page Pin-up, featuring a different character each week. You can see all of them here.
