  1. ‘Scrubcat’ ran in JUDY 631 (Feb. 12 1972) – 650 (Jun. 24 1972). Just for information purposes, when I was writing THIS WAS THE WIZARD Kashgar informed me that the artist who drew the heading block drawing that illustrated the opening instalment of the text serial of ‘Scrubcat’, 1600 (Oct. 13 1956) – 1619 (Feb. 23 1957), was James ‘Peem’ Walker. Scrubcat was of course a boy in the serial in THE WIZARD. Quite a lot of the serials in text form in the boys’ papers were recycled for the girls’ papers, with an appropriate change of gender for the protagonist.
