One thing that frustrates me: recording a programme on the television, with plans to watch it later, only to find the ending has not recorded! Or not knowing the ending of a serial. Anyone share that frustration? I believe it all stems from my younger days, when I started reading this weekly serial in the English boys' comic, Valiant... And even though my father kindly asked the newsagent to keep a copy aside for me each week, I never got to find out how this serial ended!
Of all the incomplete programmes and stories that I have never found out the ending to, this is the one I would most like to see reprinted! Just to find out what happened at the end of the story! Of course, I don't even know who owns the present copyright to this material, once published by Fleetway Publications in the 1960s...
From memory, I think the "monster" ended up being the boys' headmaster; but what happened to the people in the town and how normal life resumed, I have no way of knowing! I suppose that is why a lot of people end up becoming comic book collectors. But I have not the time! Even so, it is quite difficult to locate some of these old English comics....even with the modern-day benefits of eBay....
