HistoryJames Bold investigated unusual and apparently supernatural occurrences alongside his intrepid blonde assistant Angel O'Mercy. He never seemed to get paid, but it didn't appear to bother him.
Powers and abilities
All the personality of a plank of wood.
James Bold had five adventures chronicled in Cheeky Weekly between 22nd October 1977 and 5th August 1978; Fangs of Fear (11 episodes), The Ghost Highwayman (9 episodes), Tower of Terror (6 episodes), The Frightened Village (9 episodes) and Island of Fear (6 episodes). Several artists worked on the strip, including Mike White.
Curiously, Cheeky himself regarded Bold as a fictional character whose adventures he read in novels, a nicely metatextual touch.
