Meet the Creators of Viz at Leadenhall Market

Wednesday 5th December 12:30 at London - Leadenhall Market

Waterstones Leadenhall Market is delighted to welcome back the creators of Viz as they sign copies of the 2019 Annual 'The Pieman's Wig', and the special 40th anniversary edition of their Profanisaurus, 'War and Piss'.

As D:Ream famously sang in their 1994 chart-topper, "Things Can Only Get Bigger" ... and here, to prove how right they were is the 2019 Viz Annual The Pieman's Wig. Hot on the heels of last year's biggest ever Viz annual, this year's is even biggester, with 220 pages of
  • Cartoons: Fat Slags, Roger Mellie, 8 Ace, Mrs Brady, Big Vern and many more
  • Articles: Sex Robots, the Joy of Flatpack Furniture, Stephen Hawkins' A Brief History of Time Travel and Who's Who in the 1970s School Playground.
  • Adventure stories: Pest Force Alaska, Tiny Cox the Pocket Physicist, Drill Sergeant Jumbo and The Binman that Fear Forgot.
Plus more hilarious letters, Top Tips and spoof ads than you can shake a stick 10% bigger than last year's at.

Now in its 33rd year, the Viz annual is as much a part of the festive season as the Queen's Speech*, overcooked sprouts, and ironic Christmas jumpers. And The Pieman's Wig is funnier than all of those things. Except for ironic Christmas jumpers, which really are very funny indeed.

*Her majesty still alive at the time of going to press.

If you can't make it on the day, just call us on 020 7220 7882 to reserve a signed/dedicated copy of either book for in-store collection or home delivery.
