During the run of Shiver and Shake Frankie Stein grew increasingly popular with the readers: 1 ½ pages in the first three issues soon became 2 full pages (issues 4 - 48), then 3 full pages (issues 49 – 52), then front cover plus 3 full pages inside (issues 53 – 55) and finally front cover plus two full pages inside (issues 56 - 78). All in all, that’s 161.5 inside pages in black and white and 26 front covers in full colour.
- No 50 (Feb. 16th, 1974) – Frankie’s birthday party with guests from other Shiver strips
- No. 56 (March 30th, 1974) – Prof. Cube shows his warm feelings towards Frankie
- No. 61 (May 4th, 1974) – Prof. Cube tells the shrink about his normal day with Frankie
- No. 71 (August 10th, 1974) – Frankie’s and Prof. Cube’s holiday snapshots from 1970 – 1973 (i.e. years preceding the launch of Shiver and Shake)
- No. 73 (August 24th, 1974) – Frankie gets kidnapped and his captors end up offering Dad cash to take him back (just like in the classic short story The Ransom of Red Chief by O. Henry).
- No. 75 (September 7th, 1974) – Frankie Stein is about to receive knighthood and Prof. Cube reveals the bootlicking and vainglorious side of his personality
- Issue No. 29 (September 22nd, 1973) – illustrated by Frank McDiarmid
- Issue No. 30 (September 29th, 1973) – single-page episode from WHAM! No. 136 rearranged to fit two pages, Micky not removed
- Issue No. 31 (October 6th, 1973) – illustrated by Frank McDiarmid
- Issue No. 32 (October 13th, 1973) – consists of two episodes by Ken Reid from WHAM! No. 74 and 37, Micky removed from the latter and wasn’t originally present in the former
- Issue 34 (October 27th, 1973) – illustrated by Frank McDiarmid
- Issue 48 (February 2nd, 1974) – the instalment consists of two episodes by Ken Reid from WHAM! No. 18 (half a page chopped off) and 51, Micky removed from both
- Issue 54 (March 16th, 1974) – illustrated by Frank McDiarmid.
It is interesting to note how Prof. Cube’s son Micky is scrupulously removed from Ken Reid’s artwork in reprints of old WHAM! episodes, although he must have slipped the editors’ attention in Shiver and Shake issue No. 30 (September 29th, 1973). I wonder why they considered it OK to leave him intact in reprints included in Shiver and Shake annuals and specials.
