It’s almost that time of the year again. A time when couples get to spend a romantic weekend away without the kids, or go out for a lovely dinner at a posh restaurant, or spend a night in with a candlelit home-cooked meal. A time for single people to complain that it’s all too commercial, make comments about how true love should be celebrated all year long and not just for one day, or joke about how they’re saving lots of money. (Then the next year they’re with someone and booking that trip away.) I’m of course talking about St. Valentine’s Day.
This Next Issue promo from #20 is written by Mark Rodgers and Ian Jackson and there’s a lot to love already. From Mary Lighthouse (critic) arriving with a spiked club to complain about violence, to the gift passed on by Uncle Pigg. You can be sure there’ll be plenty more to laugh at and more for Mary to moan about in #21, the full review of which will be right here on the blog tomorrow, Monday 7th February 2022.
