Reginald Smyth (1915-1992), also known as Reg Smythe, was the creator of the British comic strip Andy Capp. The strip was first published in the Daily Mirror in 1954 and quickly became popular with readers of all ages. Andy Capp is a humorous and often satirical look at the life of a working-class man.

 

Smythe was born in Leeds, England, in 1915. He left school at the age of 14 and began working as a coal miner. In 1939, he joined the British Army and served in World War II. After the war, Smythe began working as a cartoonist. He published his first cartoons in the Leeds Evening Post in 1947.

 

In 1954, Smythe was approached by the Daily Mirror to create a new comic strip. Smythe came up with the idea of Andy Capp, a working-class man who is always trying to get out of work and enjoy a pint of beer. The strip was an instant success and was soon syndicated to newspapers all over the world.
