Parody of Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister of Britain.
Dave Speaks About Mrs. Thatcher
From Comics World #23 (Jan 1994, p. 32)
"Realizing that Jaka's Story was just a prelude to Mothers & Daughters, I started looking around because I needed a Cirinist. not just a fictional Cirinist, but a genuine, archetypal matriarch, the living embodiment of the inherent perfection of motherhood. Looking around, there was only a little bit of iceberg peaking above the waters of the universal matriarch and it was - yes! - Mrs. Thatcher."
Amazing Heroes #201 (May 1992, p. 41)
"The nice thing about Margaret Thatcher is that you can't draw her wrong. As long as you have these five elements in her face, no matter which way he nos is facing or how large her nose is, as long as it's pointing the same way as the chin - both usually look alike - it's always Margaret Thatcher."
Q2: How did Mrs. Thatcher survive the cataclysm that destroyed Iest? It occurred right after Cerebus and Cirin ascended, didn't it? She was in the upper city close to ground zero, as were Astoria and Suenteus Po. Did Astoria and Po die in the cataclysm?
Dave: I would imagine that Astoria and Suenteus Po died in the cataclysm. She might be a different Mrs. Thatcher along the same lines of the two or three Oscar Wildes in the story. You can pick whichever one makes you less uncomfortable: Mrs. Thatcher had a miraculous escape from the cataclysm or there’s more than one Mrs. Thatcher. I’ll back up your choice 100% whichever one it is.
Dave in response to Q3: (Really Esoteric Point Warning! Really Esoteric Point Warning!) Arguably the cartoon violence to which Cerebus subjected Mrs. Thatcher would suggest that the Mrs. Thatcher of Guys and Rick’s Story was possibly more of a Cirinist psychic construct than an actual person, a psychic construct which was intended by the Cirinists to rejoin the Cerebus/Jaka/Rick context in an opportune fashion at the Wall of Tsi. That is, that Mrs. Thatcher was actually killed in the Iestan Tragedy but she had proved so effective in the Jaka/Rick story from a Cirinist standpoint that it was worth reviving her in an illusory way to see if she could dominate Cerebus the way that she had dominated Jaka and Rick. As can be seen by the cartoon violence, the short answer was “no”.
