Cor!! Holiday Special 1978
  Holiday Special 1978

   This edition features the expected mixture of Cor!!
   comic stars in strips both new and old, without recourse
   to any dodgy one-offs, or indeed, any adventure strips.
   Mind you, the presentation is a tad sloppy. Both "Jelly
   Baby" and "Hire a Horror" suffer the indignity of being split
   into two parts, without a proper cliffhanger, and no
   distinction given to their concluding pages.

   But it's business as usual elsewhere. And the prize for
   Busiest Artist surely goes to Les Barton. He brings us
   his take on "Night Mare", "Jasper the Grasper" and
   "Football Madd", as well as all of the puzzle and games
   pages, including a "Holiday Race Game" which graces
   the centre pages...
