VIZ celebrates 200 issues
With all the anticipation surrounding the new look Dandy (out tomorrow) another comic milestone is in danger of being overshadowed. The UK's top selling top-shelf comic Viz has reached the landmark 200th issue.
With a fantastic cover by Simon Thorp the latest issue features a wealth of its popular characters including promiscuous hilarity with The Fat Slags, bittersweet drunken japes with 8 Ace and sweary sniggers with Roger Mellie, The Man on the Telly. Lots of amusing articles too, including How Mice are Made and Prince on Mince.
There's also a Felix and His Amazing Underpants story where he meets a comic collector. That'll probably offend someone it's not meant to.
Viz No.200. On sale now, from the top shelves of WH Smith, Asda, airport shops, corner newsagents, petrol stations and suchlike. £3.20.
