Generally these Barflys remakes of the old Andy Capp comics have a subtle difference in tone. For example, this one is morer concerning red’s degenerate gambling problem, that he’s able successully live off of, while blue is has lost his zest for life thanks to the slow torture of the work-a-day world. Meanwhile the original is unsurprisingly about spousal abuse. Emotiona spousal abuse, but still abuse all the same. When you do a comic long enough you start to notice the subtle differences that come from what information you’ve already estabished.
