This is a Slaine-style strip Glen Fabry and I did for the left-wing Sunday newspaper News On Sunday.
The strip above it, Summer of Love, is by Brendan McCarthy and Pete Milligan.
Special thanks to David McDonald at Hibernia Comics for tracking down these pages and sending them to me.
I find that I still have 6 issues of News On Sunday Extra (26/04/1987 to 31/05/1987).
The May 3rd & 31st 1987 issues also had a dice game strip called the Masquer.
The first one, called You are a TV mum!, is credited to Angela + Pat Mills and Ian Gibson. The second one, called Dullus (based on the Dallas tv show), is not credited and clearly not drawn by Ian.
Is there any chance we’ll be seeing more of SCATHA in the future.
I fear not cos Glenn and I are both working on so many other things. Shame, cos I miss her.
would you like a picture/scan of scatha episode 8?
i bought it at UKCAC 87 or 88 when they were raising money for either Jack Kirby’s fight for his marvel artwork or the anti clause 28 appeal and its sat in a folio case ever since (still got the tracing paper overlay on it)
@Mark Pickles , just seen your comment about the original artwork … if i could get a scan that would be great …
@Dale Jackson apologies for not replying sooner i believe this will show you a low res version and if i can work out how to upload a full size one i will
@mark sorry for the slowest reply in the world , would you ever part with the page or trade it … my emails is firstname.lastname@example.org
I have been looking for the first three episodes of SCATHA and now here they are. Great Find.
Awesome sabre-toothed tiger! I love Glenn’s work from this period. There’s a great sense of physicality to the figures.
