The Oink! 36 wiki last edited by nubyth on 01/26/15 01:45AM View full history

Anarchic 80s UK kids comic.

With this issue, the comic moves from glossy paper to newsprint and a slightly smaller page size which is retained up to and including issue #62.

The "Uncle Pigg" framing story involves Uncle Pigg going crazy after a knock on the head, leading to various unusual things happening in some of the other strips, notably Harry the Head being drawn for this issue only by Malcolm Douglas (in his signature style) instead of Marc Riley.
