Actually, I only read a few Viz, my favourite being Black Bag(?), the parody of the Dandy's Black Bob. :)

Ha ha, someone does have to be first! :lol: This should see more activity than the redundant DFC forum anyway. :up:

In my opinion the funniest Viz strip ever was when Student Grant went to watch Ai No Corrida (if you don't know, don't google with safesearch off!) because "it's four hours long and in Japanese so it's going to be brilliant!". I've got the annual it was in somewhere.

I was especially impressed with a deluxe VIZ book chronicalling it's history [loads of pencil roughs, etc] released a few years back: [gold cover I think]: I'd be interested in getting this tome.


might have been this one]:

I have that book, it's very interesting but there's not much writing. It does have all of the covers up to that date reproduced.

Get the silver plated jubilee and rude kids and your pretty much up to date with your Viz story! The jubilee book may not have much in the way of writing (see Chris Donalds for that) but the sketches and scribbles and reproductions are very entertaining.

Dont forget the Cartoon museum will be putting on a 30th anniversary exhibition, should be worth a gander!

didn't they have someone recognisable leaving the cinema (bloke with square glasses) as in John Brown or someone?

I remember Student Grant's alarm going off at say 7 o'clock...it was too early...and it was 7pm...
