Black Bag

Black Bag

"Black Bag - The Faithful Border Bin Liner" is an occasional character in the adult comic Viz.

The original strip was a spoof of 1950s comic strips with an upper class boy and his "Lassie"-like dog, wandering around the country and generally messing up the lives of the people he meets. Instead of a dog, he was accompanied by a bin liner, blowing in the breeze. Most strips featured the bin liner being callously killed at the end. The strip was a parody of a strip from The Dandy called Black Bob, about a shepherd and his sheepdog.

Black Bag was drawn by Graham Murdoch, under the pen name of Snoddy (his cat). It lasted for a number of years in the late 1980s up to about 1990.

Black Bag was affectionately known as "B Bag", or "Baggy", by his devout readers. His friends, R Bag, G Bag and Wee Raab featured in later episodes of the strip and helped Baggy to solve many a crime.

The strip returned to Viz in 2007, with Black Bag rescuing Brotherhood of Man from a well.
