DFC challenge question!

Issue 23: Can anyone spot the two references in this week's Vern & Lettuce strip in the DFC to works by other artists?
If they're the two I'm thinking of and you're the first to answer, I'll send you a special Vern & Lettuce sketch! (You'll be competing with the Vern & Lettuce club people on Facebook as well, so don't delay!)

You have to guess two things and give names! :-D

That's funny, so it's Stephen's comic, not a shared purchase? :-D

Hmm, didn't get your reply. Funny about that nutter at the bar, though.

terrible guesses
I'm sure I'm wrong on both counts but as no one else has guessed at all so far:

pigeon reminds me of David Shenton

flat cap reminds me of Reg Smythe.

There. Surely someone can do better than that.

Vern and Lettuce continue to delight, by the way. I prefer this ongoing story to the early one offs and your colours are just gorgeous. Lovely stuff.

Re: terrible guesses
Thanks, Dave! Not the names I was thinking of, but good guesses!

I've been loving your Good Dog Bad Dog, still trying to find me some killer chili sweets to fight crime. I was really sorry not to meet you at Caption, but I keep making Woodrow promise to take me along on one of his trips to Cambridge so I can meet you. Soon, hopefully! :-)

Funny about the story, I have to strike sort of a happy medium. If I have no scripting plans at all, it's a bit scary, but if I get too caught up in the big overall story, it looses it's episodic completeness and gets a bit boring. I'm still trying to learn how to steer that tricky path.

I'm loving this story they're in. It's so brilliant. And the rabbits' ears are just too cool!

I'm currently making myself a totoro mask for a Japanese party tonight. The things you have to do in life!?!

Thanks! And good spot with the family comic section! Dave Shelton's Good Dog Bad Dog got a read as I laid it out.

Here's the finished mask!

I have a confession I haven't the money for a subscription to DFC yet ( I plan t put money raised at thought bubble towards it). So I don't know if the rest of the strip reveals another artist but is the bus using pigeon from daves journal comic? At a guess for another answer I'd say he's wearing a flat cap because you love the humor of Andy Capp.
Although the wide rainy bit reminds me of the the crazy rain panel I draw last week.

Ooh, good guesses! But still, no cigar. Hmm.

Two clues: one's been hinted at by other people very broadly but not guessed officially as one of two guesses, and the other's a children's book reference.

Ahh I think I now know the answers but I recon I should maybe keep quiet since I googled one of them?
