On this day, 15 August 1987: Nipper
Nipper comic lasted only 16 issues before merging into Buster, so its stories aren’t widely remembered. There were some little gems in there, such as Tom Paterson’s Felix the Pussycat, and magical adventure Kelpie’s Kingdom, drawn by Bob Harvey.
Kelpie ended in this penultimate issue, with a free poster. It was derivative and short, sure - probably too short to collect - but looked beautiful and had notes of some folky British classics such as Summer Magic and Rupert Bear.
