Pictures of Match Stick Men II

Continuing the theme of 'cover versions' of comic artists, here's Dik Browne's Hagar The Horrible advertising the appropriately horrible Skol lager, and Reg Smythe's incorrigible Andy Capp. I'm cheating with Andy, though, as this is a representation of an Avon bubble-bath container from the 70s rather than a straight interpretation of Smythe's line work.

Andy Capp

You can see both of these in Jim Medway's charming installation 'The New Inn' at Common in Manchester until May 18th of this year. More information on how to get there and get reduced price food and drink here:
