1975 was the year of WHOOPEE! posters – as many as 9 were offered. Let’s take a look at them.
P.S. By coincidence, Peter Hansen recently posted a picture of the surviving original artwork for the Xmas cover on Facebook. It is interesting to note that the balloon highlighting Sam’s poster in the printed version was originally the frame for the second part of the name of the comic. I believe the dark circle is from the glue applied to attach the new caption, which later came off and exposed Robert Nixon’s original lettering. This suggests it was drawn before the Editor decided to drop ‘AND SHIVER & SHAKE’ from the title.
An overview of 1976 is next in line.
