Last week's copy of Big Issue North featured a three page article by Dan Whitehead on the legendary Oink! comic. It covered the history of the much-loved publication and contained comments by editors Tony Husband and Patrick Gallagher plus TV's Charlie Brooker (who was just 15 when he contributed his hilarious strips to Oink!). Dan was a reader of it himself as a boy so it's great to know that the comic helped inspire him to pursue a creative career. Oink! - Long gone but never forgotten!
