Misty returns - twice!
Not only is the classic British girls' comic Misty back on the shelves as the latest Egmont Classic Comic it's also soon to return as an all-new one-off Halloween special! (See the cover by SMS above.)
Egmont UK launched the Misty edition (shown below), on September 16th, and it is exclusively sold in WH Smith. Its 52 pages reprint various complete mystery stories from the old weekly with artwork by John Richardson, Jesus Redondo, and others. It's available until 8th December, priced £3.99, when it will be replaced on the shelves with the fourth Egmont Classic Comic, Buster.
The other Misty special (shown at the top of this blog entry) is scheduled for later this month. This one will not be published by Egmont, but is produced with their permission. The 80 page edition will feature a selection of brand new complete stories by today's creators including John Freeman, Vicky Stonebridge, Briony Coote and Terry Wiley. It will also feature art by David Roach and an interview with Moonchild artist John Armstrong. A Bella poster by John Armstrong will be free inside.
Unlike the Egmont Classic Comics Misty special, the new Misty comic special will not be available in newsagents but you can order your copy from the publisher, priced £9.99, at the mistycomic.co.uk fan site:
