Offenbark by Reg Parlett

UPDATE
That "Offenbark" strip originally appeared in the first (1964) Boys' World Annual, though I don't think it ever ran in the weekly comic where Parlett drew a regular 'Did You Know?' feature instead. It's a great shame the old fleabag didn't enjoy a longer career as he had everything required to become the canine equivalent of Lion's long-running 'Mowser' imho.

It's worth remembering that some of Parlett's best work during the early 1960s was published in Odhams titles like Boys' World, Eagle and Swift where the higher printing values allowed him to use grey washes - and sometimes full colour. Of these strips the most popular was certainly Eagle's 'prehistoric poodle' Fidosaurus who ran riot every week for several years in a world that was a reasonable facsimile of the Flintstones' Bedrock (he was subsequently renamed 'Pongo' and then 'Fido' for two separate runs of reprints in Buster after IPC bought out Odhams). Happily I managed to acquire the original artwork for one of these sets last weekend and I can't wait to see how it looks framed (he said smugly!).

Thanks Phil for the info from comicsuk forum.

Thanks to Phil Fluter.

What got me excited was a new Reg Parlett strip I've not seen before.
Offenbark! Anyone know which comic it was from or was it a one off for the Lion Annual. To me it looks like it was from Lion comic as a guess. There was a similar strip with a cat and butler by Reg..maybe this one is the first version.
Can anyone help!!!
