REG PARLETT'S BILLY BUNTER...
The comic strip version of BILLY BUNTER (created by FRANK
RICHARDS, the pen name of CHARLES HAMILTON) appeared in
KNOCK-OUT Comic and was originally drawn by FRANK MINNITT.
After Minnitt's death, other artists took over the strip, amongst them ERIC
ROBERTS, ARTHUR MARTIN, LES BARTON, ALBERT PEASE and
REG PARLETT. It's Reg with whom I identify the strip, from VALIANT
& SMASH! and VALIANT & TV21. I'm unsure how many of these pages
were reprints and how many (if any) were new, but regardless, they were
always visually funny. Here are two pages from the 1972 Valiant
& TV21 Holiday Special for you to enjoy.
And here's the actual cover...
