Beano Bonzanzo

Here's my first contribution to the Beano, a Baby-Face mini-strip. He is such an odd character to draw and indeed, just a strange concept altogether, but I think he's also one of the most memorable characters Baxendale ever created. That wide apart nostril thing is downright weird and so is his motorised pram. A baby bandit in the wild west? Well, why not?

A baby bandit who speaks like a cultured gentleman, apart from the occasional "yuk-yuk," is even better!

One of the greatest comic characters, period—and I love the sample you've shown. Wish I lived in the UK so I could acquire more easily.
