R. D. LOWE AND DUDLEY WATKINS    Book Number: 86253    Product format: Hardback

Delighting readers of the Sunday Post since 1936, this classic collection featuring specially selected comic strips from the DC Thomson archives follows this beloved Scottish family and set of characters through the past eight decades, exploring the evolution of The Broons and Oor Wullie. One of the most endearing features of the Broons is the warmth and calamity found in a family home which is one reason why the doors to number 10 Glebe Street have remained open for so long. Granpaw, Mah Wee Lamb the Bairn, wiser than her years, over the years all the characters have made the most of fashion trends from heinous haircuts to unflattering jumpers. School, makin' mischief, the cartoon strips reproduced to the very best quality are hilarious. With coloured full page illustrations for endpapers, dozens of cartoon strips in a big hardback compendium measuring 9" x 12" with tipped in illustration on the front cover.

Haven't they changed!
from Anonymous on 01/09/2019
As a keen student of the Sunday Post since the 1950s, I'm still surprised at how much Oor Wullie and the Broons have changed over the years. They are all much better behaved, especially Wullie, and it's good to be able to take a look back at how it all began, long before I first met them.
