Comic Cover Dated 5th May

Jackpot Comic lasted 141 issues from cover dated May 1979 and then was merged with Buster in 1982. I recall playing with the squirting ring and magic Numbers free gifts in Issue 2 and 3. One if it’s popular strips was by Sid Burgon. Milly O’Naire and Penny Less were two girls at private schools, one on a scholarship and one whose Dad used all his money to send his girl to school. The strip merged with Ivor Lott and Tony Broke from Cor! and they all graduated to the Buster. Eventually this became Ivor Lott and Tony Broke with only guest appearances by Milly and Penny. All the characters are back in the new Cor!! And Buster Special our now from Rebellion.

Although highly unusual on Phil’s Auctions Issue 1 with free gift attached went for £96.
