Cor!!, a British comic book Was launched in June 1970 by IPC, their sixth new comic in just over a year. Cor!! was edited by Bob Paynter. The comic had 32 pages and included a full colour centre spread. It consisted of traditional British characters, albeit with a slight tweak. The unruly schoolkids of The Gaswork Gang echoing the The Bash Street Kids of The Beano, Tomboy was firmly in the Minnie the Minx vein, whilst Tricky Dicky seemed like a version of Roger the Dodger, albeit with longer hair and shorter trousers. The first Cor!! Featured Gus Gorilla on the front cover, drawn by Mike Lacey. The strip was in the shape of a glass, to promote the free fruit drink that came with it. The comic's most popular strip was Ivor Lott and Tony Broke, a classic tale of two boys – one rich, one poor, with the latter usually the victor of the many battles they had. The strip continued long after the comic closed, finally ending in the last edition of Buster in January 2000. Another popular strip, Whacky, debuted in the first edition, albeit initially in a half page format, sharing its space with readers letters.
