Page 28: Do Me A Favour Buster

This week each reader gets a super Buster Sportscap, and a Corgi Juniors model.

Andrew Fraser from Nelson in New Zealand says that if Buster is 26 this year, how comes he still goes to school? Buster replies that he's a slow learner.
William Raine from Spennymore asks what initials MRP mean on packets of food, like MRP 39p on a packet of biscuits. Buster replies it's Manufacturers Recommended Price.
Karen Weetman from Sheffield asks what strips other then Pete's Pop-Up Book and Good Guy Terry Brave draws, to which Buster points out Sammy Shrink, Odd Ball and Toy Boy all of whom appear in Whizzer and Chips
And Bradley Flack from New Southgate asks for a photo of Watford football team to be printed as his Grandad used to be a director at the club. Buster prints a picture of player John Barnes.

Birthdays this week are Niall Mullins from Clonsast for the 26th March, Simon Allen of Bulweel on the 28th March and Simon Redfern from Smalley who will be 10 on the 29th March.

There's also the answer to a question put to Tom Patterson in last week's issue about the difference between a Nurd and a Nurk. Tom says the only difference is the spelling. "In almost every other way they're the same - especially the fact that they don't have a single brain cell in their heads."
We're also told that coming soon is the Buster and Monster Fun Holiday Special!
Finally some bad news, that Buster will be going up to 24p from next issue, due to increasing production costs.
