Rob Riley was a British comic strip during the 1960s and 1970s. It was a black and white strip drawn by Jesús Blasco.

It was a fairly realistic strip about an eponymous contemporary British schoolboy, set in the fictional town of Westhaven-on-Sea. At one point he obtained a scholarship to a public school, the strip dealt with the social issues this raised. Slightly unusually for its time, he had a black friend.

It started in the Ranger, but it transferred to Look and Learn along with the better-known The Trigan Empire.
