Remember Oink! the comic from the ’80s? Ah happy memories. There are two issues archived here, and the Wikipedia page on the comic is a fountain of knowledge.

It didn’t last long but I’m pretty sure I bought the very last issue. This comic strip rings a bell..

It was Viz for kids. It was hysterical, and hugely influential on me too. And it meant my parents getting really funny looks as they traipsed across Derry asking for the Oink! Annual one Christmas in the 80s.

There’s a scanner in the printer I have but I haven’t got it working yet in Linux. I’ll give you a shout if I do over the next few days!
