So first up is Axel Pressbutton. He was created by 'Curt Vile' (Alan Moore) and 'Pedro Henry' (Steve Moore) and made his first appearance in 1979 in the music magazine Dark Star. In 1982 he graced the cover (with his assassin partner Mysta Mystralis) of the first issue of my favourite British comic - Warrior. When Warrior folded, his adventures continued in a series of US comics from Eclipse. Why doesn't he like apples? He was a florist until his body was eaten away by a carnivorous fungus, leaving him with a pathological hatred of all vegetation!
Each day I will be choosing a character from those suggested by the members of the Garen's A-Z of comic strip characters Facebook group - if you want to suggest any, please feel free to join in. If no characters are suggested on a certain day, then I'll have a free choice.
