2016 is set to go down in history as the year that Viz released another annual. This year’s compilation, The Bookie’s Pencil, is a magnificent collection of the best strips, features, spoof ads and stories from the nation’s favourite humour mag. Editor Hampton Doubleday has taken issues 232-241 and discarded all the dross, leaving just the cream for his readers to savour, including…

Cartoons: The Fat Slags, Roger Mellie, Mrs Brady, Sid the Sexist and many more.
Regular Columns: Letterbocks, Top Tips and Tony Parsehole.
Informative Features: Who’s Who at a Tabloid Newspaper, Believe It or Not about Pianos and What Can You Spot on the Motorway.
Exciting Adventures: Roy’s Dad of the Rovers, The Receptionist of Dr Van Helsing and The Lapdancing Nit Nurse of Greyturrets School.

The author

Viz Comic is Britain’s third or fourth funniest magazine. Possibly fifth.
Its blend of cartoons, features and joke adverts appear every five weeks on the newsstands, and selections of the best bits can be found 24/7 on for anyone too cheap to buy it.
The readers are pretty special too:
70% have been reading the magazine for 10 or more years
89% are male with an average age of 41
55% are educated to Degree level and above
70% have more than one other person who reads their copy
68% don’t read any other magazine!
