  1. I remember reading the last episode of this serial, where Joan and the young prince are captured. They face execution by firing squad but are rescued at the last moment by the British(?) army. I’ve a vague idea that Joan tells the little boy that the squad is there to honour him and that if he closes his eyes he will be back with his parents again. Quite poignant stuff for a children’s comic.

      1. I only have the 1 episode, so no other to compare to. Bit difficult to tell from this but I hadn’t thought it was Aspin.
