Cover art by Mike Dorey. I always felt a bit wary of the title 'Big Willi'. I think the editor's tongue was firmly in cheek with the 'Swing into action with Big Willi' by-line.... All it needs to push the strip completely over the edge is a character named, Fraulein Hooters.  Ooo, misses, now then....

Ahem, I don't get out much.


  1. WARLORD was a childhood favourite, but I'm sure that double entendre whizzed right over my head at the time.

  2. I can assure you that it went over my head too.

    It was only on re-reading it a while back, when I had a: 'Ooo, look: Big Willi..... Hold on a minute!' moment.

  3. I've spent most of my life thinking I imagined that. I'm not sure whether or not I'm glad its existence has been confirmed.

  4. This was the first issue of Warlord I ever had! Again, at the time the innuendo completely passed me by!

    As a punter, I always like the use of block colours by DC Thomson, mostly in the annuals, but also with some of the covers, like this one.
