Re: The Vigilant, - new comic from Rebellion

So I got a copy from Forbidden Planet the other day. I think it will need a re-read but I liked it well enough that I'd be interested in an ongoing. Other than Leopard from Lime Street, I'm not very familiar with the characters, which may be advantage in some ways, as I can take them as fresh charac...

Short story about Blackbird sunbathing.

This one's a bit of a long shot but I've a query from someone trying to track down a short story her sister wrote: "My sister wrote a small story about a blackbird sunbathing in the garden and won some money for writing it around 1973 in Mandy comic. How would I find this copy Hope you can help" I'v...

Classic British Comics Panel - SDCC

Re: The Vigilant, - new comic from Rebellion

I popped into my local WHS Smiths today but they didn't have a copy so will have to try elsewhere. I'm interested in reading it, though not in an eager rush to get my copy.

I would love to see them produce more new material, but I would I'd prefer to see a monthly Scream & Misty given the choice.

Re: The Bubble Ballerinas

Thanks for that Tammyfan. Interesting story though it unfortunately seems to have one of those narratives of the fat person being ugly and mean and all the heroes are "pretty" girls

The Bubble Ballerinas

I've had request from someone looking for more details/scans on the story The Bubble Ballerinas which appeared in Bunty #823 (20 October 1973). It was about a ballet school where the girls were kidnapped by mysterious bubbles. I only had the first issue myself and I haven't been able to track it dow...

Re: Trying to find Story from Bunty Annual

I have not heard back from the second enquirer, so I guess she must be satisfied with that answer. Although if she ever does get back in contact, I can make that second suggestion. Thank you!

Re: Trying to find Story from Bunty Annual

It's not unusual that two people would remember the same story but it is slightly unusual that they apparently remembered it, wrongly, in the same way i.e. it being set in Victorian times. It could be the first person remembered wrongly, then the second person recognised the basic story and then in...

Re: Trying to find Story from Bunty Annual

Good call on the Land of Nowhere, seems to be the right one. As for the second they've added "I just have this hazy recollection that the older adults (grandparents, maybe) were sent away in that society, with the implication being they were to die. Sounds dark but it was definitely a comic strip an...

Re: Trying to find Story from Bunty Annual

Thanks for all your replies! I had got in contact with the people for more details and the original person who asked has said it was in fact the story from the Mandy 1971, she must have mis-remembered the time period it was set in. The other person hasn't replied yet but I assume it was the same sto...

Re: Trying to find Story from Bunty Annual

Thanks for checking. At least it rules out Bunty annuals, I'll make the suggestion of the Mandy story and have a look through my other annuals too.
