Jinty and Lindy 11 September 1976

Jinty and Lindy 11 September 1976

None of the stories in this issue are missing from the story list, but there is still plenty to comment on. This issue gives us the last episode of the science fiction classic, “Fran of the Floods” – all ends happily for our protagonists, but the creators are careful to show that not everyone came out of the catastrophe unscathed. Elsewhere in the issue, I note that Hugh Thornton-Jones is deputising for Mario Capaldi not once but twice – he has taken over as regular artist on the last few episodes of “Jinx”, and also as the artist on “Champion in Hiding”. José Casanovas gives us humorous character Snobby Shirl who has to work as a shoeshine girl for, er, a number of no doubt very good reasons. And finally, Mistyfan has just written about “Daisy Drudge and Milady Maud” – an unlikely ‘Prince and the pauper’ tale that has real strengths showing through the formula.

Stories in this issue:

  • Rose Among The Thornes (artist Jim Baikie)
  • The Jinx From St Jonah’s (artist Hugh Thornton-Jones)
  • Stefa’s Heart of Stone (artist Phil Townsend, writer Alison Christie)
  • Fran of the Floods (artist Phil Gascoine)
  • Champion In Hiding (artist Hugh Thornton-Jones)
  • Horse From The Sea (artist Rodrigo Comos)
  • Sisters At War! (artist Trini Tinturé)
  • Snobby Shirl the Shoeshine Girl! (artist José Casanovas)
  • Daisy Drudge and Milady Maud (artist Ken Houghton)

  1. I don’t know what Rose(?) is getting exercised about on the cover. That bulldozer is clearly going to miss her by several yards..

      1. No, Mari has the right take on it – the bulldozer is meant to hit her (or rather the forge), it’s just not as obvious even as likely-seeming once blown up as a cover image. 🙂
