  1. “Inky at St Ives (2)” was repeated starting in Bunty #1408 (January 5, 1985) and ending in Bunty #1416 (March 2, 1865). I remembered seeing this somewhere, so I hunted it up today. There is also a sequel (to the 1971 printing I assume) titled (“It’s A Dogs Life” Says Inky) that starts in Bunty #789 (February 24, 1973). Inky becomes mascot to an oil tycoon.

    1. I noticed I have the wrong year listed for the “Inky at St Ives (2)” reprint. It should be March 2, 1985, not 1965 for the ending date.

    2. I’m wondering, Ronnie, quite how ‘Inky at St Ives (2)’ could possibly end on 2 March 1865, over 100 years before it even started.

    3. There was another series of “It’s a Dog’s Life!” says Inky during 1972. I don’t know the dates, but it was running in #739 (11/3/72). Artist for this was Jose Casanovas.

      1. This series of “It’s A Dog’s Life” says Inky ran between BUNTY 717 (9 October 1971) and 741 (25 March 1972).

  2. My fingers must have been on the wrong keys when I typed this. It should have been March 2, 1985. I look at my comments before I post them, but I missed this.
