The last ever Black Max?
Reading Lion & Thunder from the 21st October 1972 and i think i'm seeing the last ever episode of The Black Max. On page 4 we have an ad for the following weeks issue featuring "Secret Of The Demon Dwarf", which is the spin-off series featuring the stunted scientist. Which is making me think when, in his strip, Black Max is pursued and picked up by one of his Bats, with all the indications that he's about to be eaten, it really is the end for the fella. Which would be a shame and really rather ainti-climatic if its true.
