The Christmas Viz, now with added Hunt Emerson!

Along with mince pies, mounting debt, and illicit workplace affairs, nothing could be more festive than the Christmas issue of Viz. A tradition for 2000 years now, the festive edition is on the top shelves of newsagents everywhere, with contents to delight everyone who enjoys satire, swearing, and snow-topped logos.

Beneath a wonderful cover by national treasure Simon Thorp, there's a cracker of an issue featuring nearly all your favourites including Roger Mellie, 8 Ace, Jack Black, The Fat Slags, Johnny Fartpants, Gilbert Ratchet, and many more. As an extra special Christmas treat this year, the comic sees the debut of Midlands-based mirth-maker Hunt Emerson. Surprisingly, this is Hunt's first contribution to Viz, but he's a natural for the comic. His full page strip features the merry escapades of Johann Sebastian Bach going out dogging.

The free gift with this issue is the traditional Viz Calendar, which this year features spoof magazine covers such as this one...

Still the funniest British comic in the world, this festive issue of Viz (No.251) is seriously not to be missed! Out now, only £3.20.

Haha, that People's Friend EXTREME! cover had me in stitches, it came way too long after it's obvious target, though.
