Beano (1953)

History[]

Algernon 'Spotty' Perkins is one of Walter the Softy's two best friends, the other being Bertie Blenkinsop. He has slicked brown hair and has spots all over his face (hence his nickname). These spots may indicate that, unlike his friends and his arch-enemy Dennis the Menace, he has actually hit puberty. This would give him a strength advantage in any fight, but he is far too cowardly/pacific (delete according to reader's point of view) for any sort of confrontation.
