This chapter considers the comic’s demise and Misty’s dwindling appearances in Tammy, looking closely at the material produced after Misty’soriginal run ended and the memories of its readers. It discusses the possible reasons for the comic’s termination and looks more closely at the process of merging Misty into Tammy, demonstrating how Misty’s rolewas significantly altered and weakened. It identifies some of Misty’s international appearances in countries such as France, Sweden, Germany and Canada, and analyzes these reprints. It closely examines the material included in the British annuals and reprints during the 1980s, and summarizes the millennial re-emergence of Misty in fan websites, fanzines and other tribute publications, and reprinted and new material from Egmont and Rebellion.
