11th series for me - never liked the magazine cover parodies and I believe this series contains the bulk of them.

Wasnít me, but understandable, as it is mostly just reprints of simplistic Ad art. Saving grace for the set though are those stellar new pieces that were added

I didn't know about Ads until many years later, so Series 2 was all "original" to me.

Me too. Also, I donít think itís fair to lump all of the reused titles together. Many of them feature much improved art, though many also lack characters because the bulk of the art was on the larger billboard.

I know Iím in the minority, but I was equally fascinated by wackys with realistic product art even if they had no characters and were not funny. I would have enjoyed wackys even if they were serious depictions of the original products as long as Saunders was doing the art.

The other thread was regarding a specific card, while this one is regarding a whole series; is a poll rather than a normal thread...

Why are there two posts about the same thing?  ???

toadally agree the series 2 art was significantly improved from the wacky ads.
