YMMV / Buster

For the Comic Book Buster

  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: In 1967 a Swedish version of Buster began. This comic manage to outlive the British version (being finally discontinued in 2005), however instead of going from adventure and humour strips to just humour like the UK comic did, the Swedish version's strips eventually became more about sport.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Vid Kid had a remote control that was a Reality Warper, mostly being able to control time by pausing, rewinding, but with a few other functions as well. The concept would later be the premise of Click.
  • Screwed by the Network: In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Fleetway ended many of their older comics such as Whizzer and Chips in order to prepare for a set of new comics for the 1990s and 2000s. However, this coincided with a buyout from Egmont, who had no interest in continuing Fleetway's humour comic lineup, opting for licensed comics instead. Not only did Egmont immediately cancel the new comics, but they also cut the budget of Buster, meaning that the comic gradually went from all-new material to consisting almost entirely of reprinted material. In the final issue, only one strip was all-new: the final page.
