More festivities from Shiver and Shake

As the title suggests, here's a few more bits of December-themed bobs from Shiver and Shake. 

Beginning with... Horrornation Street, from the 1977 annual, by Tom Williams:






Also from 1977... Sweeny Toddler! By another Tom - Tom Paterson, of course:



From the days when Mr. Paterson was mostly "ghosting" for Leo Baxendale. It's as if it's from the same pen - if he wanted to, he could easily do a fourth Willy The Kid book!

And speaking of ghosting Mr. Baxendale... Here's Grimly Feendish from the 1985 annual, done by Leo's son, Martin:

(Thanks to Irmantas of Kazoop!! for that information)

Oh, and would you look at the time? Guess the world's not ending after all. Four more sleeps till Christmas!
