Cartoon of T H Huxley and Charles Darwin by "Spex" (John Fergus O'Hea) from Zoz (1876-77)

Zoz, or the Irish Charivari was a satirical magazine published in Dublin by W. P. Swan from 1876 to 1877, edited by Edwin Hamilton with cartoons by John Fergus O'Hea (under the name "Spex"), J. D. Reigh and A. F. Blood. It toned down the politics of its predecessors, Zozimus and Ireland's Eye, and concentrated on personalities and society figures. After it folded, Hamilton and O'Hea launched yet another magazine, Pat, in 1879.
