Perishers (Maurice Dodd 1922 - 2005)
Maurice Dodd original Perishers cartoon strip artwork.
During the Second World War, Maurice Dodd served in the Royal Air Force alongside Bill Herbert. After the war, Dodd was demobilized and Herbert, by then the cartoon editor at the Daily Mirror, offered Dodd the chance to write a comic strip he had created, The Perishers which had not been particularly well received. Working with artist Dennis Collins, Dodd's provided rough layouts, which Collins would then draw. In 1983 Collins retired, leaving Dodd to both write and draw The Perishers until, in 1992, Bill Mevin took over responsibility for the strip.
