Prog 371


Inside this prog is a Slaine “action figure”. Well, Tharg says it’s an “action figure” but actually it’s a drawing by art editor Robin Smith of Slaine which readers are instructed to cut out and stick onto cardboard. If this is an action figure then it’s one of those with zero points of articulation. If in 2008, a comic claimed on its front cover that it contained an action figure inside, then you would be pretty much pissed off if this was what you got. In fact, I would go as far to say that you might have a good case to sue them under the trade’s description act. (The act that we all seem to know a lot about but few of us has read).

  • Ahem...the Trades Descriptions Act was, if I remember correctly, made law in 1968 or thereabouts. It was largely superseded by the Sale Of Goods Act (1979)...
