The Wuthering Storm The Wuthering Storm p10
12 pages, 8.5 x 5", $2.00 or the usual, David Puckeridge, PO Box 491, Freshwater NSW 2096, AUSTRALIA + puckeridgedavid [at] gmail [dot] com
In this one David covers historical moments with alternating three-panel strips and single-panel gags. There's Waco, Iraq, the American Civil War, the Danish cartoonist and the Mohammad cartoons, Richard Nixon appearing on 'Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In', the end of the Napoleonic Wars; and Australian happenings like the Eureka Stockade, Captain Cook's arrival (and introduction of bogans to the locals. Haw!), and the arrival of colour TV [1975].
