Viz magazine is written in a shed

Viz comic/magazine (Billy the Fish has always been a Shedworking staff favourite) is written in a garden office in Whitley Bay, reports Buzzfeed in an excellent article that covers the rise and fall and rise of one of the most popular magazine titles of the last couple of decades in the UK.

The shedworking atmosphere where the writers/editors Simon Thorp and Graham Dury work also boasts as sofa, chairs and coffee-making facilities. Here's a snippet from the piece:
In this shed are two affable middle-aged men with one of the most remarkable stories in the history of British publishing to tell. It’s a story that encompasses more than 30 years, includes everyone from Hollywood actresses to Boris Johnson to David Bowie, and tells you everything you need to know about the industry’s modern history. But you wouldn’t know it. They’re just two average blokes. As one of them says, “The actual job’s never really changed.
Well worth a read (and views of the writing shed inside and out). --------------------------------------------------------------------
