The Daily 'Combat Colin' - Part 1
When Combat Colin began, back in Marvel UK's Action Force No.5 (4th April 1987) it was a weekly gag strip, with each story self contained. Enjoyable as it was to do that what I really wanted was to turn it into a comedy serial, in the fashion of The Cloak and I-Spy (two of my favourite strips when I was a boy).
Action Force's editor Richard Starkings gave me that opportunity so with issue No.14, I commenced Combat Colin's first serial, One Of Our Milkmen Is Missing!
I'll be running the entire six-part serial on this blog every day, over six days. Here's part one, from Action Force No.14, dated 6th June 1987. Click on the image to see it larger.
I hope you enjoy it. Comments welcome. Click here for part 2.
