Buddy comic's Buddy!

From comicsuk gallery.

Buddy was in charge of Buddy comic named after him.
One problem for the figure head of Buddy was there was only one picture of him
as far as I know.

So artists tried to change the drawing to get an expression out of the grinning Buddy. It looked like someone had graffitised him. He just needed blackened out teeth and a moustache!!:)

Who was the artist who drew Buddy?
Its a shame the artist hadn't drawn a few more versions. :)
They got it right with Spike in Spike comic by Brian Walker...a much better result.

Considering the comic was launched in 1981 Buddy himself looked far too 1960s, like a young Peter Noone. Even his clothes looked out of fashion for the era.
