I think it is still going but well past its halcyon days .
I used to buy it regularly .... just done a check and I have issues going back to Number 20 ... and various annuals . I believe they are becoming very collectable .
Some ace characters including .... The Two Fat Slags who were two nice shy retiring girls that would be the epitomy of decorum at any party and Sid the Sexist who was the " C*ck of the North " and a real smooth talking ladies man.
I did like the early days, I had the first three annuals.
Jack Black and his dog silver, detective type teenager, used to have pensioners locked up for the most trivial crimes, selling cookies for charity that were chocolate flavour and not chocolate flavoured as described.
Roger Melley, the man on the telly: : "Oh shit the boss wants to come round to my place this afternoon, better call the pig and get her to shove the hoover around before we get there". Class, sheer class!

June Spears, who was taken for a Â£6,322 ride by her local garage.
The largest bill for fictitious work carried out on a woman's car by garage mechanics was one of Â£6,322.88 charged by Joskin Bros Motors Ltd. of Stevenage, Herts. (GB). Calling in for a routine service on her one-year-old Peugeot 305, Mrs. June Spears agreed to pay for, amongst other things, new trumpets (Â£725), cracked gangle pin (Â£1,785), realignment of main glib shaft (Â£2,26, new grommets (Â£112), set of hexagonal tag nuts and dangleberry adapter (Â£35) and new piss-take valves (Â£120). No work was actually carried out on the car during the six weeks that it spent at the garage but 4000 miles were put on the clock and she later received a speeding summons from Italian police.
