Private Eye strip cartoons (1)

The first issue I have to hand is #1275, dated 12 November–25 November 2010. Price £1.50. By coincidence, the “New Boys and Girls” column features one Jacob Rees-Mogg. It’s interesting to note, given the recent D.C. Thomson “cease and desist” letter sent to Rees-Mogg about him being the spitting image of Walter the Softy, Private Eye compares him to another Beano regular, Cuthbert Cringeworthy from the Bash Street Kids.

iBores by Patrick Blower (???? (2010?)-1279 (7 Jan/20 Jan 2011))
Strip featuring boorish Apple snobs.I believe this began in 2010 and ran only for a few months.

Supermodels by Neil Kerber (????-
Stick-figure fun set in the world of Kate Moss et al. Has been running for over 20 years.

More to follow.
