Ok, so I know it's a bit late, but here's the 2011 annual selection of Oor Wullie and The Broons.

First of all, let's take a look at the Dudley Watkins collection. I was going to save this book until later this month, used to celebrate Dudley Watkins' birthday, but I decided I might as well use it now! After all, he did do thousands of comic strips!

This book features a braw collection of Watkins' best work in the Sunday Post, from 1936 - 1969. My favourite is the way he drew Oor Wullie in the mid forties.

Speaking of Oor Wullie, Peter Davidson has done a brilliant job of putting together the latest annual.

100 pages of oor fun filled lad, up to his adventures once again after his first appearence in the Sunday Post almost 74 years ago! 

And so, whilst enjoying a good read of Oor Wullie and The Broons, make sure that you take a bit of Maw Broons Tablet!

And remember, you can enjoy the Broons and Oor Wullie in the Sunday Post each week!

You should have come up with a poem like on the back of the books, instead of just: enjoy the broons and oor wullie in the sunday post each week!

i love reading the broons and oor wullie. my grandmother in edinburgh used to cut the strips out of the sunday post and send them to me and my brother in dublin every few weeks, i loved getting those letters. i still buy the sunday post on occasion and regularly buy annuals etc. ive got the oor wullie summer special that came with the cards recently and the combined 70's collection and the combined "rare" strips collections that came with cd's and one with a calendar. havent listened to the music yet though to be honest!
