Among the things I've come across while clearing out the house are a couple of collected volumes of Maxwell The Magic Cat, an old newspaper cartoon strip written by Alan Moore under the name Jill de Ray. I sat and read through a few of them. The strip ran from 1979 to 1986.
Among the targets of the cartoons in the volume I was reading were
* Government drugs policy
* problems in Libya
* radiation leaks from a potential nuclear meltdown
and my favourite
* tacky Royal wedding souvenirs including Royal Wedding sick bags.
Oddly all those topics also appeared in newspapers in the last week. Including the sick bags. Nothing ever changes.
