9780007190966: Rude Kids: The Unfeasible Story of Viz

This is the straight-talking, fascinating story of Viz magazine, founded in 1979 by Chris Donald - editor until 1999.  Chris tells the remarkable story of the magazine, from the tatty rag produced in his Newcastle bedroom to becoming one of the bestselling magazines in the UK. Chris takes us from his train-spotting childhood in the '70s through to setting up the magazine with family and friends, and struggling to sell even a few copies of Viz in the local pub. The comic's success swiftly grew, however, and remarkable events ensued, such as how Chris was invited to tea by Prince Charles, taken in for questioning by New Scotland Yard's Anti-Terrorist Branch and caught his wife up to no good with Keith Richards in Peter Cook's attic. Chris will include many original drawings in this integrated book as well as some fascinating images of early Viz creations.
