Viz Annual 2020: The Trumpeter's Lips: A Rousing Blast from the pages of Issues 262~271 (Hardback)Viz Magazine (editor)
- Sold out
Unbelievable as it may seem, the ribald delights of Viz are forty years old this year and all stops have duly been pulled out to make this year’s annual the funniest and filthiest yet. Featuring enduring classics like Roger Mellie and the Fat Slags alongside gut-bustingly hilarious new material, The Trumpeter’s Lips is very much vintage Viz.
1979 was a year of momentous events. In Britain, it began with the so-called Winter of Discontent, as rubbish piled high in the streets and the dead went unburied. Later, guerillas stormed the US Embassy in Tehran, Margaret Thatcher entered Downing Street, and Sid Vicious died of a heroin overdose while on trial for stabbing his girlfriend to death. Elsewhere, murderous dictator Saddam Hussein rose to power in Iraq, America's Three Mile Island nuclear plant went into meltdown, and there was an anthrax epidemic in Russia following an accident at a biological weapons plant.
But it's all swings and roundabouts, because 1979 also saw the first issue of Viz Comic going on sale. And now, with a rousing brass fanfare to celebrate its 40th year as the country's most flatulent magazine, Viz is puffing out its cheeks to release its latest annual - The Trumpeter's Lips.
Just like our rubbish and dead were piled up in the streets four decades ago, Viz - The Trumpeter's Lips will be piled up in shops and internet retailers this Christmas, guaranteeing a "Winter of This Content" (as specified above) for everyone.
