Shiner was a British humoristic comic strip drawn by Mike Lacey. It was published in the magazine Whizzer and Chips, where he first appeared in the second issue in 1969. Shiner was the leader of the "Chip-ites", which was divided into two sections made up of "Whizz-kids" and "Chip-ites". Shiner was an amateur boxer, who was constantly getting in trouble with his mother, who disapproved of this activity. He usually ended up getting a black eye in each issue, hence his name. However unlike most of the Whizzer and Chips characters, Shiner did not move into Buster and thus was terminated in 1976.
