  These 10 cartoons were first published in the Rods Inc newsletter, between 1977 and 1981. As I drew the cartoons, I have control over the copyright, which may not be the case if we were to publish cartoons that have been lifted from other publications. If you would like to be published, then I have to insist on originals. Peter Crain
