  1. I’ve dropped them a line, but that Watford Gapp is by Barrie Appleby

  2. Hi Andy. I listed the Watford Gapp piece as Tom Patterson as I found a mention somewhere on the web that he'd worked on the strip and it did look like his work. I've checked Wikki and Barrie's home page but it doesn't mention Watford Gapp. Have you a signed page or some other proof? British humour strips aren't my field of expertise, but we do like to get it right! Thanks to Richard for the promo!

  3. Proof is in the artwork - compare the non-Watford characters to Barrie's other work, and to Tom's secondary characters, and it's definitely Barrie.

    Tom created and drew just about every strip in the Watford Gapp series that I can remember.
