Preview: MISTY Volume 2

The Scream and Misty Halloween Special comes out today featuring all new material, and in four weeks' time Rebellion will publish Misty Volume 2, featuring classic material from the 1970s. Interesting to see them revert to the original logo, as Volume 1 had a new logo designed for it. (See here.) I suppose it has brand recognition of sorts but I never thought it evoked a supernatural vibe befitting the comic. Still, it's the logo people remember so it's appropriate that it's back.

Misty Volume 2 will feature two complete serials, collected from the Misty weekly comic. Here's some info and preview images...

Following up our hit first volume of the ‘horror comic for girls’ with another collection of two stories: The Sentinels and End of The Line. Misty was a revolutionary concept by 2000 AD’s creator Pat Mills in 1978 and left its mark on a whole generation of young women. The two identical tower blocks, known as ‘The Sentinels’ to the locals, stand tall over the town of Birdwood – but only one is occupied while the other remains mysteriously empty. When Jan Richards’ family lose their home they decide to hide out in the abandoned block so they can stay together, only to be sent into a parallel world where the Nazis conquered Britain in 1940… 

In End of the Line, Ann’s father was one of a group of engineers believed to have been killed whilst working on an extension to the London Underground but when she and her mother are invited to the opening of the new train tunnel, Ann discovers a mysterious time portal through which several workers are being kept as slaves by an evil Victorian called Lord Vicary.
