Is anyone here a fan of the UK fantasy/horror/adventure strip, Garth? I discovered it when I bought a copy of the Daily Mirror just for shits and giggles last Summer in Ireland, and recently started following the stories through the Mirror's online archive of strips (a mixed bag: some strips are missing, others repeat, etc.--great color though). The current story, People of the Abyss, a reprint from the early 1970s, goes from an undersea lost Atlantis menaced by sea monsters story to a Russian espionage story in the space of a few installments. Interesting way of mixing it up:
The main drawback to me is that Garth looks like Charles Atlas on steroids, or a blond whiteskinned version of the Incredible Hulk--almost. I think there's backstory to explain the guy's superhuman strength, but if you're coming in in the middle, you wouldn't be blamed for thinking the guy is a terminal steroids addict.
A surprise about the current stories is that female nudity was obviously allowed in UK papers in the Seventies, including nude breasts and buttocks.
There were two Titan collections in the 1980s and nothing since... surprised there hasn't been more attention?
