Beau Peep by Andrew Christine

Andrew Christine is a British cartoonist, who created the newspaper comic strips 'Beau Peep' and 'A Man Called Horace' with writer Roger Kettle. Prior to this, he drew for the comic magazines published by D.C. Thomson and IPC. His features included 'Dopey Joe' (1969-70) and 'Top of the Flops' (1973) in The Topper, 'Tom Thumbscrew' in Monster Fun (1975-76) and 'Wonder Wellies' in Cracker (1975-76).

Christine and Kettle originally created 'Beau Peep' as a parody of the adventure novel 'Beau Geste' by P.C. Wren. The strip about a cowardly British man in the French Foreign Legion was first published in The Daily Star on 2 November 1978, and runs to this day. Christine and Kettle's other strip ran in the Daily Mirror and Daily Record from 1989 until August 2015.
