Viz photocopy 'dummy' No 1 (1984) with four signed letters
Commissioned from Chris Donald in 1984 this prototype 'No 1' was sent to a major publisher who wanted to publish Viz. According to one of the letters signed by Chris Donald they went all 'scared-y-cat' wanting to tone it down and add their own content. Chris refused and this 24 pg photocopy dummy No 1 remained unpublished. A further two signed letters confirm Chris Donald's deal with Virgin Books, 'small scale compared to the other rumpus' for Viz to be published every two months. The letters were all addressed to Mick Kidd of Biff Productions whose Cathedrals of Tomorrow strip was central to the dummy No 1
