Andy Capp es una tira de prensa británica creada por el historietista Reg Smythe (1917–1998) para los periódicos The Daily Mirror y The Sunday Mirror en 1957. Su formato original era de una sola viñeta, pero posteriormente se expandió hasta cuatro. La tira es ahora dibujada por Roger Mahoney, quien reemplazó a Smythe tras su fallecimiento en 1998.
