You'll be glad to know this little update between issues will be very light on words from me and heavy on the poster goodness.  For more info on the superb J.T. Dogg and his work, see part one of the poster updates where you'll see the first four Oink! Superstar Posters.

Below are the 5th and 6th posters from issues 4 and 5 (and yes, I have that right) with a suitably football-themed entry for that specific issue.  Then, Ian Jackson took over for the final two, when having a Superstar Poster just wasn't enough for one issue, then was too much the next!:

Remember how that last poster came about?  If not, click here!

After crossing out the word "super" for "mega" I love that little sly joke by their complete omission from the Mary Lighthouse one.

So there you go, as promised the complete collection of the Oink! Superstar Posters from the early issues.  There'll be more random posters as we go along so keep an eye out and in the meantime I'll see you back here this Friday the 23rd for #9.

These are amazing - it was great to see the Uncle Pigg & Mary Lighthouse posters for the first time in 27 years! I will need to find some complete copies of these issues on eBay.
I hadn't noticed Uncle Pigg in the football crowd before now!
Also - the Ian Backbone signature on the Mary Lighthouse poster :)
