A while back (I think on the Jinty site) someone made reference to a story about a girl being kept around as an organ donor? I can't find where I saw the comment but anyway having come across this story "Shirley the Shadow" where a girl is blackmailed to stay close to a wealthy girl in case she needs a blood transfusion, I thought it would be of interest to people!

In case anybody is minded to read Shirley The Shadow, it appeared in MANDY 432 (Apr. 26 1975) - 438 (Jun. 7 1975).

I think I read somewhere that some female writer refused to write the script for this one because she thought the premise was too horrible. Ye editor insisted on proceeding, but he must have contracted another writer. :shock:

Yes, it did come up in discussion didn't it! I will have to go back and search - in fact I would have thought it was on Lorraine's site but she would have remembered if so... :) Anyway the artist is the fantastic Manuel Cuyas, who only appeared in a Jinty annual (a reprint from an earlier title).

I see from Phoenix's info that the story only had seven episodes. Maybe our female author's, um, misgivings were right and it ended up being cut short for this reason? It doesn't look like this story was reprinted either.
