One thought on “Clare- The Children’s Champion

  1. Clare – The Children’s Champion ran in Bunty 688 (Mar. 20 1971) – 699 (Jun. 5 1971). The plot of this story is based on, and heavily indebted to, Lost Boys Of The Hungry Forties, a text serial in The Wizard 1296 (Dec. 16 1950) – 1304 (Feb. 10 1951), which was repeated as a picture strip in The New Hotspur 142 (Jul. 7 1962) – 149 (Aug. 25 1962). Joe Gasson in The Wizard becomes Clare Gaston in Bunty, and Sir Frederick Winston becomes Sir Frederick Winton. In the serial in The New Hotspur Joe remains Gasson but Sir Frederick is renamed Winton.
