  1. This story must have been published in another comic before. It was published in the Dutch edition of Tina in early 1976, so it must be from 1975 or earlier.

  2. Yes, The Ghost Riders first appeared in Judy 691 (Apr. 7 1973) – 700 (June 9 1973). The essential story wasn’t new even then though as it had appeared as a text serial as Grey Riders Of Romney Marsh in The Wizard 1605 (Nov. 17 1956) – 1612 (Jan. 5 1957), the protagonist being Tom Tufton. It then appeared in picture form under the title The Grey Riders Of Romney Marsh in The Hotspur in 1969.
