The art stretching back to the 1930s right through to the 1990s and the humour are as on the button as always. The stories are always a delight, although slight and it's common that the are all the same type of story. However, the repetition of ideas is comforting and one of the best things about these sorts of volumes  . The only thing I must get for christmas is either Oor Wullie or The Broons, this year I also got this collection. It is really good, it is also really interesting to see how the comics have changed over the years and also the changes in society since Oor Wullie and The Broons first appeared.

Oor Wullie (English: Our Willie) is a Scottish comic strip published in the . Thomson newspaper The Sunday Post. It features a character called Wullie Russell. Wullie is the familiar Scots nickname for boys named William. His trademarks are spiky hair, dungarees and an upturned bucket, which he uses as a seat - most strips since early 1937 begin and end with a single panel of Wullie sitting on his bucket

Around the midway point in this book Dudley D. Watkins had been drawing a weekly page of Oor Wullie and a weekly page of The Broons continuously for thirty years. You’d not know without it being pointed out. There’s no sense of ennui or slacking off, and the only real distinguishing factor differentiating these strips from those of a decade previously is that Watkins is no longer producing the large panoramic, character packed panels that occasionally concluded The Broons. With his big walrus moustache, comb-over hair, cloth cap and pipe, Pa Broon had evolved not one iota from his introduction in 1936, still looking way older than his supposed years and almost interchangeable with Grampaw.

These seldom seen pages show Scotland's favourite funsters at their best. Marvel at the pranks of Wullie and his pals as he strives to outwit PC Murdoch - and his parents - and join the Broons for family fun at Glebe Street and beyond.
