Dennis Collins, Maurice Dodds, Daily Mirror, Perishers, Bill Herbert
The first every Perishers cartoon strip to appear in the national editions of the Daily Mirror October 19th 1959. Before then the strip had only appeared in the Manchester edition of the paper. The strip first appeared on the 10th February 1958 and was the creation of Bill Herbert the then Daily Mirror cartoon editor. Scripted by Ben Witham and drawn by Dennis Collins, the strip did not thrive. The Mirror enlisted the help of advertising artist and writer Maurice Dodds The Collins and Dodds combination was successful and the Perishers moved to the national editions. The partnership lasted until Dennis retired in 1983. Maurice then took on the complete execution of the strip, from idea to finished artwork, until 1992, when he once again went into partnership, this time with Bill Mevin.
