Fear The Moonchild In 2000 AD’s Re-Release Of Classic UK Comic ‘Misty’ [Preview]
Classic UK comic Misty was one of many teen focused titles published by Fleetway, with a specific focus on telling supernatural and horror-tinged stories for girls. UK publisher Rebellion today acquired the rights to Misty and other Fleetway comics of the '70s and '80s, but reprints of Misty were already in the works. Next week sees the release of the first collection, featuring the stories "The Four Faces of Eve" and "Moonchild," and we have a preview of chapter one of "Moonchild."
"Moonchild" was originally published in Misty Annual 1983, and is credited to legendary creators Pat Mills and John Armstrong. It stars Rosemary Black, a young girl who inherits telekinetic powers from her grandmother. Though forbidden from using them, repeated bullying at the hands of a fellow classmate may provide too much of a temptation for Rosemary to get her revenge.
