Smudge does have a Dad!!
The Beano 21st August 1982..
Smudge's Dad is a frogman on the oil rig so that is where he is..
Also love the details John Geering adds to his drawings like the flower very put out by Smudge using its flowerpot...also the ducks in the rain..and the mouse..
John does a great effect in the first panel showing heavy rain the house in the background is suggested in diagonal rain strokes..also great expressive faces..
looking forward to the 1980's era featured in The Beano and Dandy Heroes book 2011 coming in late August..
