Comments: The strip was written by Scott Goodall. Thanks to Scott Goodall himself for supplying this information.
The art for Kid Chameleon was done by Joe Colquhoun, one of the great British artists. He went on to draw the classic strip "Charlie's War" (and even though that strip and its characters are outside the remit of this site, I heartily recommend it to everyone).
Thanks to Jim Croasdale for this additional information.
According to Les McIntyre from New Zealand, "Kid Chameleon appeared in Cor!! comic from issue 1 (6 June 1970) to issue 98 (15 April 1972)." He also notes that there is a six-page Kid Chameleon strip in the Cor!Annual 1972, and a story in "The Birthday Book For Boys" annual 1972. Thanks for this information Les.
