The Other Cheeky Artists - Mike Lacey

Mike Lacey was first pressed into service on Cheeky's pages in Cheeky Weekly issue 35, dated 17 June 1978.  Mike provided the art for all the Cheeky's Week features in that issue, with the exception of the continuation of the Wednesday strip at the end of that week's Creepy Sleepy Tale.  There was no What a Cheek strip as the cover was promoting the Skateboard competition and Fathers Day messages inside.

Mike was back with a full issue of Cheeky's Week features, apart from What a Cheek and the conclusion of Wednesday, in the 15 July 1978 issue.

In the 05 August 1978 issue Mike provided a single page only, but he was back with a the same features as in his 15 July 1978 contribution, in the issue dated 26 Aug 1978.


There then followed a run where Mike delivered a whole Cheeky's Week for one issue each month…

07-Oct-1978
04-Nov-1978
02-Dec-1978 (but this was a 28-page issue due to industrial action, so there was no Wednesday or Thursday feature)
27-Jan-1979


Mike provided 5 Cheeky pages in the issue dated 03 February 1979, then full Cheeky's Weeks in the 24 February and 17 March editions. 4 Cheeky pages by Mike graced the comic dated 07 April 1979. The 28 April 1979 issue saw Mike draw only The Burpo Special, as was the case with the following week's 05 May 1979 issue.

Mike contributed Cheeky pages (but not a whole comic's worth) to the issue dated 12 May 1979, and a Burpo Special only on 09 June1979.

In June and July that year Mike provided one whole Cheeky's Week, together with a one-off page in another issue;

16-Jun-1979: an all-Mike Cheeky's Week
30-Jun-1979: Burpo Special only.

14-Jul-1979 : an all-Mike Cheeky's Week
21-Jul-1979 : cover art.

The pattern was maintained in early September

01-Sep-1979: an all-Mike Cheeky's Week
08-Sep-1979: cover art

...but was broken on 15 September1979 when Mike delivered a partial Cheeky's Week.  Further partial Cheeky's Weeks by Mike appeared in the issues dated 06 and 20 October 1979.


Mike drew 4 pages in the 03 November1979 issue, but a full Cheeky's Week in the comic dated 01 December 1979.


The 22 December 1979 issue saw 4 Cheeky pages by Mike, the comic dated 12 January 1980 contained a full Cheeky's Week of Mike's work, and his last Cheeky's Week work in Cheeky Weekly adorned 4 pages in the penultimate issue dated 26 January 1980.

As well as drawing all these Cheeky pages, Mike was also delivering his regular strip in Cheeky Weekly, Disaster Des.
