There were numerous stories with supernatural themes in British girls' comics and annuals. One of the most memorable illustrators, to my mind, was the one who created the illustrations for this story which appered in the Mandy Annual from 1987 - "The Delemore Diamonds." Their style lent itself paricularly well to stories such as this one with its haunted house theme. The storyteller Damian Darke introduced the story, but that's where the comforting aspect ended. Horrors lurked within the swirling black rippling outlines and the sickly green colours of the frames.
