Would anybody know something about a football comic series titled as "Bandy" (or was it "Bowlegged" ?), concerning a farm worker (named Willi Brown) who is also a football player for a local football club ("Rangers") (Artwork by Bert Vandeput) Year of publishing ? Publisher ? (Comic title)

Two more:

"The Wizzard of Football" (by Francisco Solano Lopez Studio) - Year of publishing ? Publisher ? (Comic title)

"The Partners" (in "RotR" comic) by John Stokes. Years of publishing (1988 ?)

Any help about all this will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Nikos

I think you are referring to Wee Bandy, Nikos, a character in The Victor. I believe his first appearance there was in issue 101 in 1963.
