However, it seems reports of Dennis going soft have been somewhat exaggerated, as reported by Lew Stringer.
It's obvious to me though that Dennis has been cleaned up over the last 20 years. Personally, I miss the nastiness of some of the older Beano strips and other British kids' comics. But I wonder: would anyone let their children read that stuff these days?
See below for a vintage Davey Law Dennis strip.

Patrick Brown has posted the first part of a series which will detail the history of Irish comics.
This chapter includes : "18th and 19th century Irish cartoonists, from Henry Brocas drawing British atrocities in the wake of the 1798 Rebellion, to William O’Keefe and John Doyle in London, to the anti-O’Connell cartoons of ‘the Presbyterian laureate’ William McComb in Belfast in 1841, to John Fergus O’Hea, J. D. Reigh and Thomas Fitzpatrick (grandfather of fantasy artist Jim Fitzpatrick) in nationalist papers in the 1880s, to Jack Yeats’ early career in British comics."(Via Forbidden Planet and Drawn).
