For a generation of girls, Misty was the iconic spooky weekly. Its raven-haired hostess was illustrated by Shirley Bellwood, and based on herself. For the first time, Shirley meets her admirers and discusses her work. Joining her are Pat Mills, creator and editor of the Misty comic in 1978 and writer of some of its scariest serials, and Dr Julia Round, comics academic and lifelong Misty fan.
