A while back I ran an adaptation of Peter the Whaler from Look and Learn. Our latest strip shares a couple of things in common: as well as being another classic adaptation it is, like Peter, the work of Alfonso Font. If you missed the earlier strip you can find it here, although you'll have to read from the bottom of the column upwards as I haven't had time to alter the dates to get it to run in the correct order top to bottom.
Our new strip reprint is Michael Strogoff: The Courier of the Czar, based on the novel by Jules Verne. The novel was originally published in 1876 and set during the reign of Tsar Alexander II of Russia. Strogoff is sent to warn a besieged town, cut off by Tartar rebels, about a traitor who intends to destroy the town.
