      Thanks for these. Something is definately wrong with 77 yes. When i count from 65 which is the nearest issue i have, that one is from 1974-06-01 counting 12 will give 1974-08-24, maybe 65 is wrong also. 59 is from 1974-04-20 (according to GCD), so that makes 6 until issue 65. Issue 77 is according to GCD from 1974-09-21. So something must be wrong.

        Do not worry. I worked out the mistake and prepared a correct numbering and date guide list to help you know what issue number it should be. Date is the clue, compare date with number and then correct number with correct date list. When the numbering guide is ready with the shiver and shake comics that I will put in dropbox in a couple days for you, then it will be clear.

    CCD says there were 79 comics, not 83 as stated here, so looks like your 77 is 73. I have re-numbered a couple of mine to match CCD, so hopefully they are correct.

        your welcome! Most cases when use date guides, it solves the problem. I have prepared over 65 numbering and date Guides for you. When they are ready I will let you know. Included are large comic guides like 2000AD, Eagle, Tiger, Battle, which will make your work easier after that. It is a big project for these comics.

    Shiver and Shake
    Shiver and Shake was a British comic magazine published every Monday by IPC Magazines Ltd. It ran from (issues dates) 10 March 1973 to 5 October 1974, when it merged with Whoopee!. As in the tradition of British comics many names of strips were a play on popular television programmes and films of the time. Similar to Monster Fun later, the theme of the strips were mainly horror (albeit of a comic nature). Indeed Frankie Stein appeared in both comics. Borrowing from the successful Whizzer and Chips, it was two comics in one; Shake being a pull-out section from Shiver. The main star of Shiver was a ghost of the same name, whilst Shake was an elephant. Both had their own strips in their respective sections (The Duke’s Spook and Shake), The Duke’s Spook changing to Shiver after its merger. In 1973, the comic also featured a one page strip starring stand-up comedian Charlie Williams. Other strips in Shiver and Shake included:

    ——————————————————————————————————————-
    Shiver and Shake
    Published by IPC from 10th march 1973-5th October 1974 (83 issues), Shiver & Shake was mainly horror themed comic (albeit comedic horror) in the same vein as the later title Monster Fun (Frankie Stein appeared in both titles. Like IPC’s long running Whizzer and Chips title, Shiver & Shake purported to be two comics in one, with Shiver (a ghost) and Shake (curiously, an elephant) being the ‘hosts’ of the respective titles (each of them also had a one page strip). Other strips featured included Creepy Car, The Duke’s Spook, Scream Inn, Hire a Horror (originally from Cor!), Horrornation Street, Biddy’s Beastly Bloomers, Grimly Feendish, Ghoul Getters Ltd, Ghouldilocks, Malice in Wonderland, Hot Dog and Cool Cat, Sweeny Toddler, The Hand, Soggy the Sea Monster, Webster, Ye Haunted Lake, The Shiver Givers, The Ghost’s Revenge and Adrian’s Wall (all in the Shiver section) and The Fixer, Blunder Puss, Damsel in Distress, The Desert Fox, Gal Capone, Jail Birds, Lolly Pop, Moana Lisa, Riddle Me Ray, Sample Simon, Sports School, Charlie Williams, Wizards Anonymous, and Tough Nutt and Softy Centre in Shake (most of the horror themed material, by far the more popular strips, were in Shiver). In addition, Ken Reid’s Creepy Creations, a series of one page pin-ups, ran on the back covers. After cancellaion, Shiver & Shake merged with Whoopee!, with many of the more popular strips (including Lolly Pop, Sweeny Toddler, Creepy Car, Frankie Stein and Scream Inn) becoming long running mainstays of that title.
    Shiver and Shake was a weekly humour anthology published by IPC from 1973 to 1974. It borrowed the central gimmick of Whizzer and Chips, dividing itself into two mini-comics: one headed by a ghost named Shiver, the other by an elephant named Shake.
    Unlike Whizzer and Chips each section had its own theme, with the cast of Shiver’s portion consisting largely of ghoulies, ghosties and long-leggedy beasties (“Frankie Stein”, “Horrornation Street” et al) while Shake presided over more standard-issue fare about bullies, pranksters and other traditional playground figures (“Tough Nut and Softy Centre”, “Gal Capone” etc.)
    Shiver and Shake was not long-lived, lasting for eighty-three issues before merging into Whoopee!. But like its first title character, its spectre lingered on after its demise – Shiver and Shake annuals continued to be published for more than ten years (the last to appear was the 1986 book). And not too long after the comic’s closure IPC released Monster Fun, which can be seen as a second stab at Shiver’s premise without having to share a bed with the loosely-defined Shake.
    Strips included…
    “Adrian’s Wall”
    “Charlie Williams”
    “The Duke’s Spook”
    “Frankie Stein” (from Wham!)
    “Gal Capone”

    Okay, so you’ve done the maths. Surely, those eighteen
    months of publication would have given us 83 issues
    to savour?

    Well, they would have done, but for a little printing dispute.
    In the Summer of ’74 industrial action forced a four-week
    gap into the run, affective from issue 69 (June 29th) to
    issue 70 (August 3rd).

    Sorry about the confusion, I just found out this information about the 4 week gap in the run, due to the industrial action. I will fix thge date and numbering guide now, with this new information. Remember the first 69 issues dates in guide are all correct. From number 70 -79 needs to be corrected. Then you be okay. Once I correct the date and numbering guide, I will send you.

    The misunderstanding, was because of Jack Mikel. He prepared the date and numbering guide based on the 18 month period. To err is Human. Sorry once more. As the truth
    has now come to light, it is better now. At least we now know about the 4 week gap, due to industrial action.

    The Key to how to know from issue 70 -79, about the dates not following on from number 69, with gap in between, is if you look at back page of each issue, Creepy Creations, always had number of Creepy Creation, which corresponded to issue number.
