Rupert and Billy Goat, a Bestall story originally from 1954, started on Wednesday 28th July.
It is another unseasonal offering, having first appeared as a late winter tale - as is announced in the early text.
It first appeared in the newspaper in 1954 and was reprinted in colour in the 1966 Rupert Annual.
We are unable to produce decent images at this time.
Rupert and the Big Bang concluded on 27th July in an explosive manner, with everyone surviving after playing around with gunpowder. An unseasonal tale that would certainly have caused concern to the security powers that be today.
