Apart from the excellent cover illustration by Simon Thorp the latest Viz plays down its significant landmark of 250 issues and it's pretty much business as usual inside. Of course business as usual for Viz means it's chock-full of chuckles with your cheery fun-chums getting up to hilarious scrapes, with a good dollop of satire, wry social comment and enough bad language to fill a modest sized swear box.
I'm sure you don't need any more convincing from me. You either 'get' Viz or you don't. Personally I've enjoyed it from day one and consider it one of the best British comics ever published. Here's to the next 250 issues!
Viz No.250, 52 pages, out now, £3.20.
Viz editors / contributors Graham Dury and Simon Thorp will be at the Lakes Comic Art Festival this weekend in Kendall.
