Andy Capp is usually described as a "wife beating drunk" although one internet wag described him as "the greatest Englishman since Churchill." Any long-time reader could tell you that the marriage of Andy and Flo was a mutual slugfest, Andy's "pet," often seen sporting a black eye, giving as good as she got. The hero of Buster Comic was apparently supposed to be the son of Andy Capp although my issues never feature the characters of Andy and Flo. One curious piece of Andy Capp merchandising is Andy Capp Hot Fries shown HERE.
