Madam & Eve, by Rico Schacherl

Rico Schacherl was born in Vienna, Austria, but his family emigrated to Johannesburg, South Africa when he was still young. Here, he met up with South African Harry Dugmore, with whom he founded Laughing Stock, a humorous magazine, which unfortunately folded. In 1992, together with American Stephen Francis, they created the popular comic strip 'Madam & Eve', about the relational dynamics between a white woman and her black help (inspired by the actual relationship between Francis' mother-in-law and her help). This comic, which appears in the South African The Weekly Mail, is written by all three men and drawn by Schacherl.
