Those of you with long memories will remember I did this in prose form last year with prizes (and Aunty Slag telling me off for the questions being too hard).

This year, I have no prizes, but I have done a YouTube video asking similar questions about the UK comic (or more specifically the issues I've covered on my website this year) just for fun.

I've basically ignored the "Too hard" complaint by making it even more difficult by the questions being read out in my comedy voice.

Still, how many can you get right?

[The format of the video is: I ask the questions. You can pause, rewind or stop the video at any point as I do so if you need to have a think. Then I do an advert for my plans in 2015- including the book version of my site- and then I read the answers. It's that simple! Put how well you did either here or in the comments on the blog]

First one was kind of guessable from the habits of the US comic. Don't remember much of this stuff, if I ever did.

Book (preferably ebook option -- POD pricing still tends to be a rip off) is definitely a better way to follow long form blogs IMO. Only about a book behind with Tardis Eruditorum by this point.

It's fairly straightforward; https://kdp.amazon.com/help?topicId=A2MB3WT2D0PTNK

Some sort of physical book would be preferable just to go on my own shelf, but I'll almost certainly do an Ebook as well for those buying out of reasons other than my own ego.

I intend to pick Mr. Turnbull's brain about lulu at some point.

OK, I've just done the quiz. I did this just drawing from memory and I think I've got one question right and maybe half of Questions 2, 5 and 10. You sure don't make it easy, man!

Presumably most people are doing this quiz from memory? Otherwise it'd be significantly easier to flip to the relevant comics/scans/wiki.

[Edit] Having listened to your answers I got one full question right. There's probably no half marks awarded because Question 3 requires three answers. However, I reckon Question 10 is up for debate, it could be 'X', but I thought it should be at least one more!

I managed 5 out of 10. Your quizzing is tough ... but I like it, avoids the more common things one might expect :)

Of course you can have a half point Slag, it's Christmas!

If I missed someone off from question 10, feel free to put it in spoiler brackets and if I agree you'll get a bonus point as well!

Well done to Skyquake as well!
