The Daily Mail has published a special Roy of the Rover strip to mark this weekend’s biggest match of the season, the 161st Manchester Derby.
Featuring Champions Manchester United versus super-rich City, the strip emphasizes it’s the hottest ticket in football and United fan Neil Mason has managed to get his hands on a pair! It means Neil can take his seven-year-old son Ben – a new City follower – to his first ever Barclays Premier League match – but he spots a famous face in the crowd…
Written by Ian Rimmer, the strip is drawn by longtime Roy of the Rovers artist Barrie Mitchell.
“It’s a one-off at the moment,” Ian tells us, “but who knows..?”
I’m sure there are plenty of ROTR fans out there hoping there will be more.
