Viz is a popular British comic magazine founded in 1979 by Chris Donald,
It parodies British comics of the post-war period,
notably the Beano and the Dandy, but with vulgar language,
toilet humour, black comedy, surreal humour
and generally sexual or violent storylines,
it also sends up tabloid newspapers,
with mockeries of articles and letters pages,
it features parody competitions and advertisements
for overpriced "limited edition" tat
as well as obsessions with half-forgotten
kitsch celebrities from the 1960s to the 1980s
such as Shakin' Stevens and Rodney Bewes,
occasionally, it satirises current events and politicians,
but has no particular political standpoint;
its success in the early 1990s led to the appearance
of numerous rivals crudely copying the format Viz pioneered;
none of them has managed to seriously challenge its popularity,
it once enjoyed being the third most popular magazine in the UK
