Robinson Crusoe part 1

The 12 days of Christmas... and what's more Christmassy that a classic children's tale retold. This one truly is a classic: Robinson Crusoe. But, as the introduction says, there's more to the story of Robinson Crusoe than is usually related in children's adaptations of Defoe's novel, so if you've never read the complete story of the mariner's adventures, this is your chance to amaze your friends with your literary prowess.

The artwork is by Colin Merrett who, by the time this strip appeared (1972) had already been drawing comics for over 35 years... and he still had another 20 to go! Definitely someone that we'll have to take a look at in the near future.
