Pete's Pocket Army was a strip drawn by Francisco Solano Lopez which ran in IPC's Buster in the 1960s. It concerned a boy called Pete (obviously) who had effectively adopted (or been adopted by) six pocket-sized stranded aliens from the planet Liturnus whose spacecraft had crashed near the town of Whitford. Curiously, rather than trying to figure out a way off of this world of gigantic terrors, alien castaways Kon-Dar, Dokk, Moonie, Grunf, Tigg and Zapp seemed perfectly happy to spend their time helping Pete get even with school bullies and Pete's sneaky cousin Julie. All very odd, if you ask me — a fiver says they were the vanguard of an alien invasion, and Pete was to be the first up against the wall when the mother ship arrived!
