  1. Amazing story!!! My favourite as a kid x i still remember it in such detail x its only now i appriciate the brilliant artwork x i hope the artist got recognition for this brilliant work x

    1. I’m not sure who the artist was, and I don’t have the complete story but I’d love to be able to give credit to those responsible as what I have read was very well done.

  2. ”Beggars’ Academy” ended in BUNTY 1286 (September 4 1986). Please note, Lorraine, that you will need to correct your spelling by moving the apostrophe one letter to the right in all three instances.

  3. Just happy to be in a position to help. We are all working for the benefit of every other interested individual.

  4. I loved this story! The opening episode was in one of the first Buntys I ever read. I can remember it so clearly. The two sister lost their parents in a train crash. The elder sister was able to track down the younger one, Clover, as they had matching birthmarks on their wrists. So many cliff hangers! So much drama! I still have some Buntys with the later episodes but not the whole thing sadly. I would love to read it all again!
