Most of STRIP Issue Three - and stuff lines up for future issues - is still sitting on my hard drive...
Any clues as to who owns the copyright and what will happen to it?

I have a few dummy issues of unpublished comics but have mislaid them! Anyone seen a brown A4 envelope?

Back in the early 1990s Fleetway did a dummy for a humour horror comic called Spooky. I don't have it, so I don't know what the contents were but I know it was going to be part reprint.

If you ever find it, would be interesting to see.

The classic lost girls comic is the final issue of Tammy. One story was left hanging, missing its final episode, while others that were intended to carry over to a merged comic were never seen again. There's been some research to find if any of the stories showed up in foreign editions, but so far none have been found.

Thanks, Richard. Just read it. TBH, if someone told me that the ever conservative DCT was considering publishing a comic like that, I would not have believed them. It goes without saying that it was a pity that they didn't.

Even now, I would love DCT to produce a comic that could join the ranks of 2000AD, Titan comics and Panini comics. Is that yet a possibility?

I think that I have a dummy from the late 80's either called Thunder or Lightning which I got from the very kind Tony O'Donnell. I will need to see if I can find it again!
I started to say something sensible but my parents took over my brain!
