2016 is set to go down in history as the year that Viz released another annual. This year's compilation, The Bookie's Pencil, is a magnificent collection of the best strips, features, spoof ads and stories from the nation's favourite humour mag. Editor Hampton Doubleday has taken issues 232-241 and discarded all the dross, leaving just the cream for his readers to savour, including...
Cartoons: The Fat Slags, Roger Mellie, Mrs Brady, Sid the Sexist and many more.
Regular Columns: Letterbocks, Top Tips and Tony Parsehole.
Informative Features: Who's Who at a Tabloid Newspaper, Believe It or Not about Pianos and What Can You Spot on the Motorway.
Exciting Adventures: Roy's Dad of the Rovers, The Receptionist of Dr Van Helsing and The Lapdancing Nit Nurse of Greyturrets School.
All these and more, but not Billy the Fish, are crammed into The Bookie's Pencil's 160 laugh-packed pages.
"Viz, The Bookie's Pencil is my tip for this year. It's the odds-on favourite to romp home by a head in this year's best seller stakes." Failed bookie, John McCririck

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
