Peter de Smet (4 July 1944, Amsterdam – 6 January 2003, Amsterdam) was a Dutch comic-strip artist. He was the author of De Generaal ("The General").
From the 1960s onwards de Smet worked as an artist in advertising. An early version of De Generaal was sold to Hergé's The Adventures of Tintin but was never published. Pep magazine picked up the strip in 1971, and published it through several incarnations of the magazine.
