        Never had the Monster Fun comic, it was always Beezer, Beano Dandy and Topper, but I had 2000AD for the longest, I do have a couple of monster fun annuals tho

          There were so many comics with Girls' names for titles (Tracy, Penny, Judy, Tammy, Tina), and then they'd combine and would sound like some kind of hillbilly name sometimes. I never understood the name Bunty though... was there ever some poor thing living with that for her first or even last name? Shades of Prunella Scales! Bunty sounds too much like Binty... should have been titled Mary after the Four Marys strip.

          I think Whizzer and Chips was the best all-around comic paper!

            Bunty sounds like the sort of nickname a girl at a boarding school would get. My sister used to read Twinkle when she was young.

              I assume that "Whizzer" and "Chips" were two separate comics before they merged? - one comic that comes to mind is Nutty, which merged with the Dandy, and was briefly called Dandy and Nutty?

              A lot of girls' comics (as well as magazines - think Jackie) had girls' names on them - not too many boys' names on comic titles, apart from Victor. Even Dandy was a girls' name (think Dandy Nichols).

                Wizzer and chips was my regular then the Beezer as my favorite strip was the numskulls. As I got older I transitioned to the victor, reading it at one of my mums friends house who had two older sons.
                I then went on to Action , this was later banned because of the violence it depicted. It returned later but was incorporated with Battle comic, was toned down and was never the same. I had kept every issue and sold them on eBay a few years ago

                  I think Whizzer & Chips was always a single comic, though there was an older unrelated comic called Illustrated Chips.

                    I thought the same, that Whizzer and Chips were separate at one time... must be a website that could tell us!

                      I thought that the "And" bit in the name indicated that it was a merger of two comics.

                      In around 1987, I had Action Force; a schoolfriend had Transformers, and around 1988, they merged so we had the same comic, and a year after that, it merged with something else.
