A Garth Serial by Rendszeretlen
(Garth is a character appearing in an adventure strip in the British newspaper Daily Mirror from 1943-1997. For most of us probably brought to life for the first time in Aquadude’s set of comic scrolls. I am grateful to Aquadude for his suggestion I try a retake based upon the adventure strip. In keeping with the fact that one of Garth’s enduring foes is Madame Voss, it seemed in keeping to match him up against female adversaries again.)
1. Ultimatum: Distraught
That night their lovemaking had been long and caring. It was always was, it had been that way since their first coupling. Not usually one able to hang around in his line of work, in his time with Lenana Garth had discovered the pleasure of lingering tenderness. Actually that night Lenana had drawn him inside her only twice. But they had lain together, kissed, stroked, talked and smiled till late into the depths of the night. A remarkable change from the athletic performances he had generally put in with his women. So the commotion took a long while to penetrate, Gath had been in a deep sleep when Lenana was shaking him awake. Wondering what the uproar was outside.
