    Don't approve of the wacky face him off the viz (the one on the right) is pulling on this cover, but I'm looking forward to reading it.

    Me and me pal was published in Viz about 6 or 7 times 15 or so years ago. Top tips and letterbocks. I've sadly lost the issues we were in after moving home about 6 times since. Have no idea what numbers they were in either.
    First time we got loads of stuff - all the current annuals and hardcover books, plus a years subscription and other things like pg tips teatowels oddly.
    We were published after they were bought out and only got a top tips pen (also lost)

    That Hell Below Zero strip is bleak as fuck. I once had a boss like that. One of my workmates clocked the smarmy twat over the head with a tape dispenser. He fell down on the light bulbs I'd spent 10 hours unpacking and re-packing into different boxes. I ended up snapping and then kicked the boxes of bulbs all over the warehouse floor whilst Mr Boss crawled around trying to nurse a bleeding head wound. Agency work for mercenary cowboys in the late 90s for £3.00 an hour. :mad: :mad::mad::mad::mad:

    I love “The Male Online” - perfectly sums up some post-Brexit vote acquaintances - and most things that duo come out with (“Hen Cabin”, “Drunken Bakers”..)

    Gilbert Ratchet is still one of my faves (and whoever draws “Vibrating Bum-faced Goats”, “Godzilla vs The Ring of Pubis”, etc.)

    ''The Burrowing Church'' was my favourite of theirs. Fucking mental. Same person that does Roger Irrelevant?

    Going to see Barney Farmer do a reading from his new book, a drunken bakers novel tomorrow. I'm slightly dubious how good a drunken bakers novel could be, but it's got some solid reviews and sounds like it could be good. A noble effort if nothing else.

    He's interviewed about it here: Inside the head of the creator of Viz's Drunken Bakers

    I find the Drunken Bakers the bleakest of all the strips. Pretty depressing stuff.

    I've not been an alcoholic, or a baker, but i think it probably gets that feeling of your life spiralling out of control, whilst you are observing it in a drunken haze quite well.

    I dunno, Fixed-Odds Betty is bleaker. Farmer & Healey have an eye for it.

    I get Viz via Readly app (I like it for the sailing mags :oops: ) - reading it every month again I've noticed a certain extra bleakness in it. Still funny though.
