"Our story continues..."

BOYS' LIFE / January 1972
Story by Al Stenzel / Art by GRAY MORROW
And that brings the series to an end! I'm both thrilled and amazed to have been able to read this series, after 43 years, and am proud to be able to make it easier for other fans to enjoy as well.
According to Wikipedia, Lou Fine worked on the strip until he passed away, so I'm guessing Gray Morrow was brought back to wrap things up. Al Stenzel was still around, he didn't pass away untl 1979. But I suppose he just decided to end it here. It was nice to see it brought to a conclusion, even if it was rather abrupt. Kurt & Primo had clearly become good friends, but there was hardly a hint that there might be romance between Kurt & Rua!
2 final "extras", from Apr'72 & Jul'72.
