Does anyone have Catch the Cat #1161, the last page of the episode in #1159 and middle page to the episode in #1163?
Yes, I do, Briony. However I will have to ask you to wait until next week for any scans as my London grandchildren, Aurora (5) and Kelsey (2), are currently staying with me until Saturday, and they take a deal of looking after. ''Grandad, can we go/will you please take us to/ the park/ some play zones/ the swimming baths/ Southport''. Mind you, to be totally honest, I would actually much rather be taking them places than rooting through back issues of Bunty. They get me out of the house, and we have a lot of fun. It's simply a question of priorities. I'm sure you can understand this.


Thank you, Phoenix. Looking forward to them when you're ready!

Looks like we are getting close to the ending with this episode, dated 24 June 1972. Assuming Hantz is right, where's your money on who The Cat is?


Curiouser and curiouser! It sounds as though the Cat has to be a transvestite, an old woman or Janine herself...or maybe Hantz himself suffered from multiple personality syndrome, with a cross-dressing alter-ego that even he didn't know about! :shock:

On the subject of all-black costumes, Diana's Black Nightingale was another early-70s heroine who wore similar attire to fight the nazis in occupied Europe - and while she didn't model herself on any kind of cat she didn't look much like her namesake either:

Does anyone have the publication dates for Black Nightingale, please? I am asking because we have a query about finding this story on Girls Comics of Yesterday.

The Black Nightingale ran in Diana 526 (March 17 1973) - 540 (June 23 1973).

Many thanks to Phil for the mention and scan of The Black Nightingale - and to Phoenix for the info. on her appearances. As a huge fan of Masked Mystery (Wo)men and costumed crimefighters (and I'm supposed to know about all these characters) this was a brand new one on me. It's always a delight to discover exotic heroes and heroines and this is no exception. :D

I've only three or four issues missing in that year, Briony, so I will extract the required information for you tomorrow afternoon. Patience is a virtue.

This adventure for Marie Bonnet starts in issue 1491 (Aug. 9 1986), not in 1490, where it is merely trailered. The issue number and date of the final episode are correct.

Thanks for the correction, I must have noted the wrong date in my notes originally.

Thank you, Phoenix.

You know, this means the third Cat story only had 11 episodes. That's short in comparison to the first two. I wonder why they didn't make it longer.
