It is an adult comic for people who haven't grown up
and why would anyone want to grow up? it's so over-rated

I'll never forget the Readers Tips page.

Ladies, don't throw away your used tampons. Simply dip them in glitter and hang them from your Christmas Tree, for inexpensive but effective decorations!

I laughed at that for years
one of my faves was :

Peeled banana skins make ideal sun hats for starfish

Saw a man of about 55 reading it on the station platform this morning. I felt embarrassed for him.
I salute him....& pity you!

I love 'Roy's Dad Of The Rovers' this month. Top notch one-off.

Haven't bought it for years, but VERY fond memories of it 'back in the day', ie late eighties/early nineties. Paul Whicker The Tall Vicar was genius - a handful of appallingly drawn tales of a corrupt, drunken and violent clergyman. Although the best single strip I ever saw was Roger Mellie doing Countdown, which he somehow managed to confuse with Bullseye...

Roger Mellie: Hello, and welcome tooooooooo Countdown! Now, would the first contestant like to step up to the oche please.

(Contestant guided to centre stage by baffled-looking Tom, the producer)

Roger: Right then, have you got your darts?

Contestant: ?

Roger: Oh for F**K'S sake Tom, he hasn't bought his arrows!!!!

Probably need to see the strip in context, but can't find a scan at the moment, sorry...

I love Roger Mellie I've been reading since the early 90s (thanks to my uncle ) and I still buy it every month. It's not as good some months as it is others, but I still enjoy it. I love the regulars (and I miss Spoilt B&st&ard and Modern Parents not featuring much), but everyone has their favourites. I never really got the point of Billy the Fish, but there's a couple of newer artists - like the one that does the We Buy Gold strips and the one that does all the Biblical strips that I really like.

Drunken Bakers is one i generally dont get. Although a few months back (it was about a drunk woman who gave BJs for booze, then fell in a river and drowned) as it was so ridiculously bleak, it had me in fits of laughter

On the contrary the early issues were great - not many comic strips, just hundreds of stupid adverts and single-picture jokes. And the few comic strips they had were still fresh and funny - Paul Wicker and early Roger Mellie were hilarious. The Big Hard One - the first compilation annual - was superb.

Billy the Fish is just a parody of the "Roy of the Rovers" cartoons in boy's comics.

They were called The Modern Parents. As the post only six above yours tells you.

The first thing I always turn to these days is 8 Ace.
So predictable, but so bloody funny...

The strips I never find funny are Roger Mellie, The Pathetic Sharks, Sid The Sexist, 8 Ace and Billy The Fish. My favourites used to be Spoilt Bastard, Modern Parents and especially Millie Tant, because I used to know a girl very much like that

A special mention for Thieving Gypsy Bastards

I tend to prefer the letters, the adverts and the "special offers".

I liked Roger Mellie, Lol I only bought it occasionaly as I am 5ft nothing and it was always top shelf, hehe, I bought Zit more often! I was going to buy it as a read for the train from aberdeen to home the other day, but it was 3.90 or such, so I got a private eye and the indy sunday version.

Best thing from Viz publications has to be the profanosaurus..mine is on perpetual loan, like a daft toilet chain mail..Meh I should have charged a fee! Currently its with a friend of a friend in Elgin..or so I heard.. Welp my charity shop has got it in..I might buy it for a quid save it from the black world of books doom station!
