Features - The Cult Of The Cat The Sentinels Paint It Black Moodstone Roots Nightmare Story Moonchild Red Knee - White Terror! Beasts Story Blue Fish Strip. Misty was a weekly comic for girls published by Fleetway in London from 4 February 1978 until 12 January 1980, when it merged with TAMMY (which then became known as Tammy and Misty until September 1981).Misty was a collection of one-off single stories and instalments of serials, both story types usually being four-page-long. Misty concentrated on supernatural and horror stories, featuring plots such as pacts with the devil, schoolgirl sacrifice, the ghosts of hanged girls, sinister cults, evil scientists experimenting on the innocent and terrifying parallel worlds where the Nazis won the second world war. One-off stories often had troublemaking protagonists being punished in fantastic fashion. Text stories were initially new stories, but later shifted to retellings of British ghost stories, some of which were submitted by readers. Misty had no regular characters except for its host Misty, and the cartoon witch Miss T. This cartoon attracted debate among readers as to whether its comic relief weakened or complemented the dark tones of Misty. PAT MILLS, Malcolm Shaw, Barry Clements.
