I wasn't buying Buster at that time, but is there any mention on the cover of a pull-out booklet or poster? Seems strange that three copies all have the same pages missing.

no mention of a pull out but the 9/12/78 cover mentions robbie the robot ivor lott story is on page 16 but in mine was page 15 as pages are unnumbered and even hanah11zoe said this in a message to me as all their 3 copies is the same.i have just checked my 2/12/78 is 32 pages numbered then 9/12,16/12 was 28 pages unnumbered,my 23/2 is 28 pages unnumbered then my 6/1/79 is 32 numbered pages.i dont have 30/12 can anyone confirm last 4 dec 1978 issues was short 28 pages or am i just unlucky.i am currently working my way throuh over 1600 busters coynting bloody pages now lol.

It could be possible those two weeks were victims of the industrial action which saw Cheeky Weekly, Whizzer and Chips and Whoopee disappear for three issues.

In Cheeky Weekly issues dated 2/12/1978 and 9/12/1978, the comics' page count was reduced from 32 pages to 28, then there were no issues on the 16/12, 23/12 or 30/12/1978.

It leads me to wonder if the IPC comics that were still on sale during this period, also suffered from a reduced page count. :?

I'll certainly have a look Bri. I was buying the Buster every week at that time so my copies will certainly be as they were published.
