1 thought on “Stella Starr

  1. Several years ago I drove down from my then home in Maghull, near Liverpool, to Cheltenham for an auction of comics and books etcetera. I stayed in a hotel the night before the auction to make sure I was there before the doors opened. I made several successful bids, and in one of the lots I found quite a number of typed scripts by W. G. Ede. I still have them. None of the stories are complete, and the majority of them are serials for boys. Nevertheless I do have several episodes of serial stories for girls in text form, which indicate clearly to the artist what he/she should draw in each panel. I have five episodes of ‘Stella Starr – Holiday Camp Girl From Outer Space’, five of ‘Stella Starr – Adventure Camp Girl From Outer Space’, and one of ‘Stella Starr And The Scarlett Line’. I don’t know what story papers they were destined for. I won’t bother listing here the titles of the stories for boys. I also have a letter to Mr Ede from the editor of D. C. Thomsons’ story paper SECRETS dated 15th May 1967, the signature on which looks like J P Harding. At the time Mr Ede was living at Church Cottage, Fleet Road, Fleet, WEYMOUTH.
