Something about Poot! now, a Viz knock-off that stood out from the majority in that it's actually enjoyable to read:

Taking a look at Ziggy now, the most tastless comic I've ever laid eyes on:

WARNING - It's VERY rude!

Now it's the highly rare and highly strange Adroit, a surreal/political take on the Viz formula:

Today's Viz knock-off is the Sunday Sport Adult Celebrity Comic. It's rude, crude and crass, but it DOES feature the likes of Nigel Parkinson, Nick Brennan and Steve Bright:

Taking a look at Jockstrap, easily the WORST comic I've ever had the misfortune to read:

And now, two weeks later (the weather's too nice for blogging!), a look at the ultra-controversial Skank, the comic that got sued into oblivion by Linford Christie!

It's been a while, but I couldn't let this week pass unnoticed, so here's the Beano from the week I was born, in its entirity. A couple of strange "meta-strips" in there!

Hey, first "proper" update in ages! Blame the sun, again. It's a big massive look at Zit, an okay-ish Viz rip-off.

Cheers, Mr. Gobshyte (funny name there, ho ho!)

I've been doing articles on Viz clones since March now, and there's still loads more to go - hopefully should have them done by Xmas :D

As in, once all the Viz knock-offs are done? Plenty, probably move onto small press stuff or MAYBE American "comix" (as in, hippie stuff/things that aren't superheroes).

Or who knows, I started out with the intention of doing a toy blog but it turned into a comics one fairly quickly!

I quite liked the old mixture of comics, books and 90's memoribilia, so feel free to do more of that XD. I have a blog for "everything that's not comics or Japanese, unless it is but the post involves swearing" that was partly inspired by yours, but updated once every 6 months or so!

Cheers Mr. Felney :D

There's plenty of "ideas" knocking about for further things to do, so yeah - mixtures are probably best. Where's this non-comics, non-Japanese, pro-swearing blog of yours?
