Focus on Oor Wullie - 15% off this weekend

The Broons go fishing

Posted by John Patrick Reynolds on

SALE ITEM: The Broons go fishing – I love the way the panel has internal echoes. Paw Broon and Granpaw Broon form a pair, as do their fishing rods, the speech bubbles, the hilltops and even the rocks in the river. And a ‘but and ben’ is apparently a two-roomed cottage in the countryside. It […]
