Indexer Notes

This strip's original publication was in a violent 1976 title disembowelled after a media-led outcry after 36 issues. This strip survived the re-launch, but in considerably tamer form. It was planned to run the entire series uncensored for the first time, but even 18 years later that was too much for Fleetway's management. The page count includes the title page.
