ginger Megs

Created by Jimmy Bancks in 1921, "Ginger Megs" is Australia's longest running comic strip. Appearing in many newspapers on a daily basis, Ginger Megs is a young red headed boy who is a bit of a rascal and mischief maker at school. Every kid who grows up in Australia knows who ginger megs is, so much so that we often nickname people with red hair "Megsy".

  1. Ginger Megs is run in many newspapers published by some companies?

  2. Yeah most newspapers in Australia are only distributed in their home state, so papers in different states tend to publish the same cartoons. It might sound strange but we only have one national newspaper, (that is not just a financial review or the like)
