Of the original Seven Wonders of the World, only one - the Great Pyramid of Giza - remains standing. Tragically, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, the Colossus of Rhodes and the Lighthouse of Alexandria have all now been destroyed. But now, a new Wonder of the World is here, and it’s better than all of that lot put together. The 2016 Viz annual - The Otter’s Pocket - is surely the crowning achievement of over a million years of human civilisation. Itis a magnificent, towering compilation of the best bits from issues 222-231 of Britain’s funniest* magazine; a bumper 160-page hardback full of hilarious cartoons, letters, Top Tips, articles and spoof ads, with a nice, colourful cover stuck on the front. Thousands of millennia from now, when the Great Wall of China has fell over, the Eiffel Tower has been melted down for scrap and the Great Pyramid of Giza has finally crumbled into dust, Viz - The Otter’s Pocket will still be here, in large, unsold piles by the tills of your local bookshop.
