http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1845355113/

Is the Broons/Oor Wullie cover a good idea? A lot of readers may overlook it. Then again it looks odd enough to arouse the curiosity of people who wouldn't otherwise have looked at a Broons/Oor Wullie book.

Silly Sing-Along? Does that mean we're getting a CD this time?

I really love the Beano and Dandy Silly Sing-Along book, a great festive feel!

I'm not too sure about the Beano one, there doesn't seem to be a lot going on.

As for The Broons and Oor Wullie, that's a very messy cover. It's a good idea, but they haven't done it very well.

That's an amazingly original cover for the Dandy one. Dan eating a cow-pie, wow!

Love the look of the Beano/Dandy Silly Sing-A-Longs one, but I'm going to try and put these out of my mind for another seven months.

With the success of the Victor books, it would be a nice idea to re-introduce the Victor annual - hosting a new Ian Kennedy cover.

There's a different cover up for the Broons/Oor Wullie gift book. I'd always had a feeling that the previous cover up looked more like a first page than a final cover.
