Nipper was a short-lived British comic book magazine, published between 31 January to 12 September 1987. Unlike most British comics by this time, which had A4 paper size, this was an A5 comic, which meant it was half the size of all the others, hence the name 'Nipper'. Nipper ran for 16 Issues, had just one holiday special and just one annual in 1988. By the time of its last issue, however, it had become an A4 comic like the others. After that it merged with Buster.
