Bizarro Back Issues: Moonchild Has... The Power!
Bizarro Back Issues: Moonchild Has... The Power!
Moonchild was one of the strips that ran in Misty, which was originally conceived by Mills as a sister title for 2000 AD, complementing the sci-fi directed primarily at boys with supernatural spookiness aimed at girls. Unfortunately, Misty wasn't as successful, and was later merged with a similar title, Tammy, before finally getting the axe in the mid-'80s. The good news, though, is that thirty years after its last issue, Misty finally saw a reprint this year, and while its take on the popular horror of the day isn't quite as over-the-top as, say, Judge Dredd's take on America as a concept, it's still well worth checking out.

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."

2000 AD To Reprint 'Misty' Stories For First Time In 35 Years
Nowadays, I think we can all agree that Thrillpower is for everyone, but that was not always the case. In the late '70s, with 2000 AD a success after its first year of publication thanks to strips like Judge Dredd, the publishers decided that the world needed "2000 AD for girls," and thus Misty was introduced to the world. The weekly magazine ran between 1978 and 1980, directed at girls with a focus on supernatural horror, and is still remembered fondly despite its relatively short 101-issue run. Now, for the first time in 35 years, it's set to be reprinted starting next September, starting with stories from Pat Mills, John Armstrong, Malcolm Shaw and Brian Delaney.
