Buddy was a short-lived title published by D.C. Thomson from 14th February 1981 to 6th August 1983, a total of 130 issues. Hosted by freckle-faced schoolboy Buddy, it contained a mix of humour and adventure stories including The Wolf of Kabul, The Iron Fish, an updated version of Billy the Cat, Jonah, Limp-Along Leslie, General Jumbo, The Fighting Frazers, The Winged Warriors of Flame Island, Jasper Sly, Frontline UK, Midshipman Coward, Q-Bikes, Hammer and Boy on the Run. Most of these were not new characters or strips and some of the strips were reprinted from past issues of other titles. One of the artists working on the comic was Ian Kennedy. Buddy was eventually folded into Victor.
