I've sort of dealt with the characters' lives more; particularly the women characters.

   

Dennis the Menace was probably the most realistic comic book ever done. No space aliens ever invaded!

   

We grew out of the superhero comics, but we still liked comics, so we started putting our own experiences in the stories we were doing for our own amusement.

   

It wasn't until school that we realised that we were abnormal.

   

We were very happy when a South African court, which had previously ruled against us, took another look and decided that this material was not obscene and allowed it into the country.
