On this day, 20 April 1974: Cor!!
These are the yokes, folks! The Slimms (drawn by Terry Bave) crack open the Cor!! Easter number.
As per tradition, this issue was full of Easter-themed eggs-apades. Val’s Vanishing Cream (artist Mike Lacey), Ivor Lott and Tony Broke (Jim Crocker), Jasper the Grasper (Trevor Metcalfe) and The Gasworks Gang (Frank McDiarmid) were among the stars.
Ivor and Tony have been resurrected (alongside Milly O’Naire and Penny Less) for the wonderful Cor!! Buster Humour Special, released this week nearly 49 years after their debut in the first ever issue of Cor!! A fantastic reimagining by Matt Smith and artist Tanya Roberts.
