Saw some of the ‘Marple’ ep ‘The Body In The Library’: in-house idiots and frank hostility feature in this camp and mischievous tale.

Read ‘Misty’ issues 100 and 101. The final ever issues. ‘Smile’ was a dumb tale of an evil Polaroid. ‘The Experiment’ is an okay tale about a girl who realises something about her home is terribly wrong. ‘The Dryad Girl’ is a tale of a dryad who wants to be mortal because she loves a human boy. It goes badly for her. I just realised that in the crap evil plant people story, the bad guy was called Bracken. LAME! ‘Country Churchyard’ is daft. ‘Friends’ sees 2 yobs (one named CRIPPEN) get theirs. ‘Crowning Glory’ was an okay tale of hairy revenge. Where was the evil dollhouse story I could have sworn was a ‘Misty’ tale? This was a good comic. You can see why its memory lives on.

Best Lines:
“We could phone the police. But the telephone is too near the camera!”

“The plant-people are everywhere.”

“Why are all these dogs going one way?”
