HAPPY BIRTHDAY, UK WHINGER


Today is the UK Whinger's birthday. In celebration of my good friend's birthday, here's a photo of the very first appearance of the UK Whinger, in the June 1944 Science and Mechanics magazine. The episode, "Someone Stole Me Bloody Rocket," proved so popular that the Whinger spun off to his own comic book, TV show, and several films.

Happy Birthday, UK Whinger.
