Bruce Hunter
Created by Alfred Mazure

Dutch cartoonist Mazure, disillusioned over his inability to cash in on his greatest creation, comic strip private eye Dick Bos, relocated to England after the World War II, where he worked as an illustrator, writer and comic artist.

One of the strips he did manage to sell featured private eye BRUCE HUNTER (or was it Bunter?)

Hunter was essentially a Dick Bos clone (except, according to one source, he was "slightly less asexual"). He managed to hang in for a couple of years, from 1951-1953, appearing nine story arcs in The Daily Herald, accompanied by his faithful secretary Pixy. Mazure later recycled several of those adventures, turning them into Dick Bos strips in the sixties.

Other comics Mazure created or worked on for the British market were Dad and Egbert, Sam Stone, Bruce Bunter, Jane -- Daughter of Jane and another detective strip, Romeo Brown with Peter O'Donnell.
