The Mailbag page also featured the original version of this cartoon. At a rather small size, and printed in a poor quality, it was later redrawn, and it is the redrawn version that is shown here.
The original version also featured the caption, 'Brian soon realised that he wasn't likely to get a job as a cartoonist when he left university'.
There would turn out to be four Inner Circle cartoons, only two of which were published in Hydra. The full set can be found in Bodstoons.
